Nail of the Day - OPI Just Spotted The Lizard!

Happy Thursday everyone! It's almost the weekend again which means I'll be in Lake Placid soon.  This is a great thing because I'll be able to pick up some polishes that aren't available to us Canadians.  I'm also hoping to be able to pick up some nail art supplies so my nail art will quickly improve.  Anyways, like I mentioned yesterday I picked up OPI Spider-Man mini-collection on a recent trip to Toronto.  This mini collection comprised of four of the seven wonderful colours.  I was a little sad that these minis didn't include Call Me Gwen-ever.  But alas, I am very excited to talk about this collection. 

So the first colour that I'll be talking about is OPI's Just Spotted the Lizard.  As described by OPI, it's a reptilian yellow-green.  Honestly, I would describe it as a golden-green chrome with teal and green duo-chrome.  Just Spotted the Lizard has a shiny metallic finish that is very prone to brush strokes.  I also found that this polish was quite thin and took three coats to get good coverage.  I would recommend using this polish over top of a white in order to get the best coverage.  Like many polishes, I recommend a high gloss top coat to really make this polish pop.

  I also love the fact that this polish is an exact dupe of Chanel's PĂ©ridot.  Though I have nothing against Chanel, I am currently not in a place to afford Chanel nail polish.  I have always been in love with this colour so I was very excited when it became apart of the OPI Spider-Man collection.  If you want to see a picture comparison, check out Scrangie: OPI The Amazing Spider-Man Collection post.  She gives a great side by side comparison. 

Overall, I was very impressed with this first colour.  In my opinion, it's a must-buy.  This colour is an awesome metallic that is very different from the other colours that we have been seeing this season.

I picked up this set from Trades Secrets for $14.99 or you could buy each colour individually from $9.99 Canadian.   

So what do you think? Is this a colour that you will be picking up?

Keep those fingers pretty!


  1. This shade has really grown on me! I'm glad there are lots of dupes, though... OPI doesn't wear the best on me. I've heard the Gap's version is nice.

    1. Yeah I was a little disappointed with thickness because I found it was a little thin. I'll have to keep an eye out for the Gap polishes!
