OPI Spiderman Mini Nail Polish

Have you seen the OPI Spiderman Nail laquers? There were two colors that I really, really wanted from the collection. They were “Into the Night” and “Your Web or Mine?”. I planned on picking both of these up at $8.50 a pop, but I found this mini set for around $12 at Ulta that had those two colors in it so I thought that was a deal!

“Into the Night” is a shimmery, almost navy blue with a purple undertone. Its really pretty. This one is my favorite of the bunch. It does apply sheer, though, so you will need 2 to 3 coats to build the color.

“Number One Nemesis” is a shimmery, metallic dirty green.The shimmer gives off a golden cast. Just like “Into the Night”, you will need two or 3 coats to build the color because it is very sheer. It is a lot like Chanel’s Graphite.

“Your Web or Mine” is a rosy pink with a frost finish. I was disappointed in this color:( It was streaky, even after 2 coats. Its such a shame because its such a pretty color.

“Just Spotted the Lizard” is a dirty green with gold duo chrome. It has sort of an antique feel about it. Personally, this is not a color that I gravitate toward. If you liked Chane’s Peridot, you will like this shade.

This is a limited edition shade for Summer 2012.

Zoya Kimber Nail Polish

I’m loving Zoya’s nail polish in Kimber from their Surf collection.  Its a little coral and a little red. It does have shimmer.  Its just beautiful.  Its supposed to be a close dupe to Nar’s Thakoon polish in Anardana.

I purchased these products and as always, these are my own, honest opinions.
