OPI: Just Spotted The Lizard From The Spiderman Collection

OPI has very recently released a collection in conjunction with the new Spiderman movie. This seems to be quite a theme, not only for OPI, but other nail polish companies as well, to have nail polish collections that pay homage to an upcoming movie. Remember, the Hunger Games? How about The Muppet Movie? And, way back was ‘Burlesque’.

Although I was not particularly excited about the Spiderman collection, I did pick up two: ‘Just Spotted The Lizard’ and ‘Number One Nemesis’.

Here’s ‘Just Spotted The Lizard’…

The colors that I see in the bottle are deceptive. It looks very much like a duochrome in the bottle. I’m seeing a green, a copper and a bluish-purple flash. But take a look at the color on my nails…

These were taken at the sunny window which, is indirect light. But, as you may notice, even though I am at different angles to the window, I’m seeing the same shiny green shade. I applied 3 even coats. I did top it off with Color Club’s Vivid Color Intensifying Top Coat.

I’m really disappointed in that. I was looking forward to getting a duochrome as I don’t have very many of those in my polish collection. But, I still do like this shade…

It is just not blowing me away like I thought it would.

During the Beauty Bloggers of Central Florida meet up, last week, of course we all look at each others’ nails and share what we are wearing. I couldn’t remember the proper name for this one so I jokingly was referring to it as ‘Pet My Lizard’. I think that is funnier than ‘Just Spotted The Lizard’.

What do you think? Will you, or have you, given this on a go?

Vampiest Polish Shades Found at Forever 21

Just a short little haul today.

I stopped by Forever 21 at the mall I did some work at just today. I wasn’t going to stop in, but I’m obsessed I’ll miss something new.

What I found wasn’t so much as new as it was just new to me. Also, I needed a gift.

Take a look at the goods…

Named ‘Midnight’, this Forever 21, love & beauty polish looks just like a starry sky. It reminds me of the Hubble space photos of far universes.

The base is a blackened blue, and then it is chalk-full of micro glitter that seems mostly silver. However, and I can’t tell for sure, there are either different colored micro glitters in there, or that silver is refracting a rainbow of shades. Even swatched on a white sheet of paper I’m not quite sure.

This one is new to me. I don’t think I’ve seen it before. This is called ‘Black.’ But, what we have here is black glitter. The base is clear but it is loaded with a lot of black glitter and micro-glitter. I got this to tide me over til I get Wet ‘n Wild’s ‘Tangled in My Web’, which you can look at here and see Vampy Varnish’s swatch of it.  It seems that ‘Black’ is more densely packed with glitter though. I’ll do a comparison or, just a swatch of ‘Black’ if I can’t find ‘Tangled…’ soon enough.

This is another one that seems just right for the Halloween season…

You’re checking out ‘Burgundy.’ But, as you scan through these photos, it’s not always ‘Burgundy,’ now is it? Duochrome, Honey Child!

Oh. You noticed there were two ‘Burgundy’ bottles? Shhh….one is a gift for someone very special.

Is there one you like better than the other? I’m truly interested…are my hauls and swatches of Forever 21’s love & beauty polishes of interest to you? Does it create lemmings?
