Showing posts with label pearl

Hello lovelies,

I know I've already posted today but I totally forgot that today is the No H8 Day. I just want to show my support. I do not approve of any kind of bullying , in real life nor online. So this is my purple manicure for the No H8 Day - Models Own Purple Pearl.

Bullying is not funny. It is not cool. It is not right. And more importantly, it is not okay.
Most of us are, thankfully, residents of countries that support tolerance and many of our families have settled in these places simply for that reason. Generations later, it is our responsibility to perpetuate that message of tolerance across our new social platforms, including the internet.

As members of the nail polish blogging community, we all share a love of beauty, color, and lacquer. Other than that, we are remarkably different: from our race to our religion to our hair color...even to our polish application techniques. To marginalize anyone because of those differences is completely unacceptable and today I take a stand against that. I refuse to allow other people's view of "normal" dictate how I behave, believe, and blog.

In solidarity with a multitude of bloggers linked below, my purple manicure represents my proud commitment to the No H8 movement. Today, November 8, I dedicate my post to ending bullying of any kind and to encouraging diversity and imperfection among our colorful community.

Hello lovelies!

Look what I've got! The whole OPI Spider-Man collection! You've probably seen it before because I'm quite late with my review. I've got the polishes a bit later so I could review them earlier, sorry :-/

The collection is inspired by The Amazing Spider-man film and consists of 6 colours and one Shatter:

My Boyfriend Scales Wall - grey-ish white creme. This is not a classic bright white; it's somehow muted, with added grey in it. I really like it and it became my favourite white polish. it is not as much for the grey-ish colour as for its formula. It's flawless! It applied great and two coats were enough for a full coverage. I hope this would be a one-coater but unfortunately it is not.

Your Web Or Mine? - medium pink with pearl finish. Ehm...I'm not sure how this colour fits into the Spider-man colour palette. The pearl finish is very strong which makes the polish streaky and it was a bit of a fight to apply it nicely. Two coats were enough for full coverage.

Call Me Gwen-ever - muted orange creme with coral undertones. For me this is great summer orange is not too bright or too boring, mainly because of the coral undertones. It has a great formula and pigmentation - I've needed two coats for full coverage and the polish dried very fast.

Number One Nemesis - metallic grey-ish green with gold particles. I seriously don't know what happened here, the pictures didn't come up well at all! Unfortunately I broke my nail so I couldn't take new pics :-/ Back to the polish is hard to describe colour - it is like golden olive green mixed with graphite silver with added gold particles. It is also dupe for Chanel Graphite. It applied nicely and I've used two thicker coats. In the real life the colour looks so much better and more sparkly and you'll love it ;o)

Just Spotted The Lizard - yellow-ish green/olive green duochrome. I fell in love with this type of colour however this shade, I presume, is an answer to Chanel Peridot mania. It is not unique as it is almost exact dupe of Peridot but it certainly is a beauty. It is well pigmented, I'm wearing two thicker coats. Polish dried very fast and is a bit streaky. 

Into The Night - dark blue shimmer. Lovely shade, very well suited for Spider-man collection :) I liked the final result, the deep blue but to get me there I had to apply three coats. I'm a two-coater girl so three coats for me is a no no. I am a bit disappointed that the polish doesn't have better pigmentation because OPI is my fav brand and they do so well with pigmented polishes (if you know what I mean!). Despite that it applied nicely but the finish is a bit streaky.

Shatter The Scales - dark forest green Shatter with silver particles. Oh wow, I love the silver particles in the Shatter! It's not flat like the other creme shatters. However I'm not sure if we need more crackling polishes, this trend is way last year! Shatter applied well and dried fast and I'm wearing topcoat over it.

Overall I like the film-themed collection but where is red??? Spider-man without red is like Britain without Queen! I wouldn’t mind repeat of a red shade, wouldn’t have to be completely new shade, but I expected red :(

Most of the polishes had great formula and pigmentation and I also quite like the two dupes for Chanel polishes. It makes a great cheaper option.
