OPI Spider-Man Collection Swatches & Review
Posted on Thursday, April 26, 2012 | 4 Comments
Today I have the Amazing Spider-man OPI collection to show you guys. This is a limited edition collection that will be available beginning May 2012.
Left to right: Shatter The Scales/Green Shatter, Into The Night, Number One Nemesis, Just Spotted The Lizard, My Boyfriend Scales Walls, Your Web Or Mine?, Call Me Gwen-Ever
The first color I have is Into The Night. Into the night is a shimmery slightly frosty blue polish that requires three coats to be opaque. It starts out extremely sheer but builds up beautifully. I was surprised it only took 3 coats to be opaque since I thought it would stay sheer.
The next color I have is Just Spotted The Lizard. Everyone says that this is a dupe to Chanel Peridot. I don't own Peridot so I can't make a comparison. This polish has a similar finish to the previous polish Into the Night. Just Spotted The Lizard is a shimmery frosty gold/ green polish. This polish only required two coats.
The next polish I have is Number One Nemesis. This is gold, grey, green shimmer polish that reminds me of Hard Candy Mr. Wrong. I will have to make a comparison post for you guys. I used three coats, I should have maybe used four coats.
Next we have Call Me Gwen-Ever. This is a dusty orange polish that required only two coats. I know it doesn't really look dusty but trust me it is! I really liked the application of this polish, it went on smoothly with no balding/ patchy issues.
The next polish is my least favorite polish from the collection. Your Web Or Mine? It's not that it's an ugly polish but a pink frost polish just doesn't work for me. I used two coats for this polish. The one thing that surprised me was that this frost polish did not show brush strokes...this is rare for a frost polish since almost all frost polishes show brush strokes.
My Boyfriend Scales Walls is my favorite polish from this collection. I honestly don't know why I like is to much. I guess it is because the white polish applied like a dream. There was no balding patchy issues and it was opaque in two coats. It will be my go to white.
Lastly from the collection we have Shatter The Scales/Green Shatter. OPI makes the best shatters around. The shatter polishes ALWAYS shatter. I applied Green shatter over My Boyfriend Scales Walls. I used one thin coat on the pinkie finger and it was too thin so I immediately applied a second thicker coat and the polish still shattered perfectly. For the rest of my fingers I used one thick coat.
The limited edition Spider Man Collection will be available beginning May 2012 at Professional Salons and Spas for $9.95 CAN suggested retail for each Nail Lacquer.
