OPI: The Amazing Spiderman (favorites and swatches)

I have some of the OPI The Amazing Spiderman Collection for you today. I have to say I am seriously loving the ones I reviewed... Onto the pictures...
Just Spotted the Lizard is by far my favorite of the ones I've tried. It's a gold to green duochrome that looks like you've dipped your nails in 24k gold. The above picture was taken in my light box under warm lighting and you can see the shift even without an extreme angle. Below is a picture under the same lighting but at more of an angle so you see the green shift. Beautiful! I applied 3 coats and dry time was fast. I have a top coat of OPI Start to Finish over all my swatches as well.
 Into the Night would have to be my next favorite of the bunch. It's a very true blue shimmer that almost glows in direct light. Above is what it looks like in the light box with indirect light, below is direct light with a daylight bulb and the shimmer is amazing in this one. Again 3 coats, no application problems and a Start to Finish top coat. I'm also rocking this as a current pedi.. LOVE it on the piggies!
 Number One Nemesis was another color I was really looking forward to. It's a dirty olive green/grayish murky base that has amazing micro glitter/shimmer in it. The close up was in the light box under warm light, below is under cool light, you can see how it reflects the yellow or white in the lighting. The great thing about this is it has micro holo shimmer in it so in the cooler light, you can see holo goodness. Really a beautiful polish. 2 coats and a top coat pictured. 

Shatter the Scales is the new green glittery shatter for the collection.. this is great! I only tried it over Into The Night and Just Spotted the Lizard because I felt it showed up better. I'm not sure if OPI changed their shatter formula or not but I had amazing shatter results with this one. I do my nail in three parts starting from one side, middle, other side then add a top coat to make it glossy. I bet this would look awesome over the other cremes in the collection that are lighter in color. You can check those out HERE in the press release. 
 Overall, I really enjoyed these. I'm glad OPI did something a bit out of the box for this collection and are keeping up with current polish trends as far as finishes and such.

  1. I love Into the Night and Number One Nemesis!! Thanks for sharing ;0).

  2. ooooo its spider monkey spider monkey does whatever a spider monkey does... heh I love these!

  3. I just picked up Jessica Iridescent Eye - otherwise I would be picking up the Lizard one. I'm glad someone nationwide finally made a Chanel Peridot dupe!

  4. Yay! Great swatches! I'm excited for this collection!

  5. these are first swatches I've seen of this collection, love them :)

  6. Ohhh, Just spotted the lizard is definitely my favorite!

  7. Great swatches! 'Just Spotted the Lizard' looks like Chanel Peridot to me a little bit, although I'm sure I'll end up getting it :)

  8. Super shots! I am over all not wowed by the collection. Some fab photos (swatches) like your are pulling my mind another direction however. I just don't know if in average light Lizard and Nemisis will show their 'stuff.'

  9. Much cooler on the nail than the bottle pix...I may have to pick up a couple of these!
