Chanel Peridot vs. OPI Just Spotted the Lizard

Pin ItThe polish world has been a buzz with talk of TWO Chanel dupes in the new OPI The Amazing Spider-Man collection, and I am here today to help you find out if it's true!

The second rumored Chanel dupe in the OPI The Amazing Spider-Man collection is called Just Spotted the Lizard.  Read on to see if it really is a dupe for Chanel Peridot!  (And click here if you missed my first comparison, OPI Number One Nemesis vs. Chanel Graphite).

After two coats, you can definitely see differences in the finishes of the two polishes, but the colors are identical!  Like with Chanel Graphite, Chanel Peridot definitely reflects more light than OPI Just Spotted the Lizard.

From this angle the Chanel and the OPI look pracitcally identical, though the Chanel is brushstroke-y.

After comparing the two, it is apparent that while the formulas are different, they are very close dupes.  OPI Just Spotted the Lizard is PRACTICALLY Chanel Peridot, the differences are so minute that even the most seasoned veteran would have trouble telling them apart!
