OPI The Amazing Spider-Man collection - Swatches and Review

OPI Spider-Man (791x1024)

Pin ItI finally have the Amazing Spider-Man collection to show you!  I feel so bad that it took me so long to get them up... I wrote this whole post already, but somehow managed to delete it!  Grr!  Now I know my comments will not be as witty as they were the first time!

OPI Shatter the Scales is a green shatter polish that is meant to represent the villian of the movie.  I have no idea who that villan even is, but let me tell you it is a gorgeous green shade!  I like the shade so much I wish it wasn't a shatter...we need this in a full on polish!  (Hint, Hint!)  It was a really easy to use shatter that did not require special attention, and it cracked very easily.  I really loved the matte texture so I did not top any of the swatches below with topcoat.

OPI Spotted the LizardOPI Green Shatter over Spotted the Lizard

OPI Just Spotted the Lizard is a gorgeous duochrome that shifts from old gold to green.  It is an awesome dupe for Chanel Peridot, and you can check out my comparison post here.  Here I used three coats.

OPI Into the NightOPI Green Shatter over Into the Night

OPI Into the Night is a gorgeous shimmery midnight blue.  I really loved how it popped against the green shatter -  I felt like my nails looked like earth from space!

OPI Call Me Gwen-everOPI Green Shatter over Call Me Gwen-ever

OPI Call Me Gwen-ever is a muted coral shade, though it doesn't appear that way in these pictures!  I wish I could have captured it better on camera.

OPI Number One NemesisOPI Green Shatter over Number One Nemesis

Oh, my favorite!  OPI Number One Nemesis is described as a sparkling nickel, but it is way more special than that.  If you enlarge the picture you will see that there are all kinds of colors hiding in the base that come out when light shines on it.  It is very close to Chanel Graphite, click here to see my comparison post.

OPI Your Web or MineOPI Green Shatter over Your Web or Mine

OPI Your Web Or Mine? is a pink frost.  Why?  Why include a pink frost?  Especially when you could have included a red.  After all, Spider-Man does wear red?  *Is confused*

OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls

OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls is a really nice white with a hint of grey.  I liked it because it only took two coats to get to full opacity.  I am always looking for a good white to use as a base, so I love this.  I actually wore it for three days with no chipping, which I thought was impressive for a white!


Are you looking forward to this collection?  Do you think it fits the Spider-Man collection?  What would you have done differently?  And most important, are you going to pick up the Chanel dupes?
