OPI: Limited Edition Spiderman, Swatches and Review

Sony pictures paired up with OPI to  release a new collection in honor of  "The Amazing Spiderman" coming to theaters July 3, 2012.

The line features 6 new nail colors, in addition to an awesome new shatter!

"Your Web or Mine?"
2 coats, no top coat

Pink frost, went one very nicely, , no drag, great smooth texture , and as you can see the brush strokes left behind are not bad, but still visible!

"Into the Night"
2 coats, no top coat

Love this dark blue shimmer, super pretty! Formula was a bit thin, and the brush strokes are visible but minimal, so next time I'll try 3 coats, that way I get more deep blue shimmer for my buck!

"Call Me Gwen-ever"
 2 coats, no top coat

This is a dusty coral creme, pretty, but a bit odd. I can't put my finger on this one yet, it perplexes me?  I don't think I have anything like this color, but I do think I have some OPI colors that are close. The formula was smooth, no drag and no issues with coverage,

"Just Spotted the Lizard"
3 coats, no top coat

We've all seen this color before, but somehow every time I see it, it never gets old. Great formula, it was opaque in 2 coats, but I did a 3rd to build the intensity of the green flash.  Love this color, and I love how it looks indoors and outdoors.

Gorgeous gold and green metallic duo-chrome!

"My Boyfriend Scales Walls"
2 coats, no top coat

Not quite white and definitely not grey, this is more of a dusty white creme. Very nice, this may have to replace my favorite white OPI "Alpine Snow"...this color seems much cooler than Alpine Snow to me, nice!:)

"Number One Nemesis"
2 coats, no top coat

This is a pewter green metallic shimmer, very pretty, but it does seem to remind me of a couple other colors. Never the less, it's very pretty and if you like greens and metallic finishes, you'll love this shimmer!

And here they are with the shatter on top, "Shatter The Scales"...

Above: "Number One Nemesis" topped with "Shatter the Scales".

Above: "Just Spotted The Lizard" topped with "Shatter the Scales".

Above: "Call me Gwen-ever"topped with "Shatter the Scales" and "Into The Night" topped with "Shatter the Scales".

Above: "Your Web or Mine?" topped with "Shatter the Scales".

Above: "My Boyfriend Scales Walls" topped with "Shatter the Scales".

Overall I am super happy with "Into The Night", but of course I love it, it's a blue polish! The other's aren't bad, but they are colors I feel we've already seen.

I also really like "Shatter the Scales", it is a super pretty green glitter/shimmer, it reminds me of wet lizard skin, which may gross you out, but it's kinda cool too!

Happy Friday and Keep it Sweet!

Thanks for the swatches! I really like the coral and the dusty white. Can't wait to get them on my fingers. I am somehow perplexed by the fact that two of the polishes seem like total dupes for Chanel's Peridot and Graphite from the Fall 2011 collection.
