When I put Barielle Holiday Madness on my nails, I was pleased because I really enjoy these kind of duochromes, and it reminded me strongly of OPI Just Spotted the Lizard, so I decided to quickly do a comparison post for those of you who want to decide which one you like better. Let’s get to the photos, shall we?
Here’s Barielle Holiday Madness. Here’s my full review on this beauty. It was definitely thick and thin coats worked really well with it. 2 coats were necessary to get this look.
OPI Just Spotted the Lizard was one I got because it was LOVE at first sight. It was an unusual polish, and I had to have it in my collection. The formula is extremely rich (feels like liquid gold or something!) and goes on smooth. It took 3 coats to get it perfect. Always happens, doesn’t it? Anyways, the polish’s duochrome is quite strong. The gold is also very prominent!
Let’s look at these side-by-side!
Not exactly dupes! So, if you like subdued duochromes, then go with Holiday Madness. If you like the prominent gold, then go with Spotted the Lizard! My personal favorite? I honestly like both, but I love the OPI’s formula the most. Don’t get me wrong, I really love Barielle and their treatments, but JSTL really feels like liquid gold going on my nails.
