Nail of the Day - OPI Just Spotted The Lizard!
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 Péridot. 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!
