Comparison - Chanel Peridot vs. OPI Just Spotted the Lizard

Good morning!

Some of you may remember that recently I received Chanel Peridot in an international swap. I had just purchased the supposed OPI dupe as well, so today I have them both in a comparison swatch for you.


Chanel Peridot is featured on my index and ring nails while OPI Just Spotted the Lizard is on my middle and pinky nails. As you can see, they look identical and can visually pass for the same gold-green duochrome polish.


The difference between these really lies in the application. Both are on the streaky side, but I found that Peridot was much easier to work with. Just Spotted the Lizard was thick, and it just didn't want to apply nicely. Maybe I got a bad bottle because I don't remember reading that anyone else had problems with it, but my bottle was definitely a let down.


Despite the fact that the OPI shade left something to be desired in the application department, it's definitely a hell of a lot cheaper than the Chanel polish, so that earns it some extra points for sure.

So, can you tell the difference between these two shades? Did you have any trouble with your bottle of Just Spotted the Lizard?

  1. My OPI was a little thick and tricky to apply but for the big difference in $$ I will take that difficult application over the Chanel!

  3. Ah wow, they really are exactly the same :)

    My bottle is buttery-smooth, maybe a bit on the thin side but 3 coats looks perfect. Definitely a different experience than what you had, I almost prefer mine thicker over too thin, wanna trade? :)

  5. Love it. I feel like somebody with an inexhaustible collection/polish budget should do a breakdown of all of the Chanel dupes -- the colors are great, but I seriously saw one on eBay the other day for $150 and that's just... wrong.
