Gonna be bringing you something slow today, just a review of a Nail Lacquer I acquired recently, of the famed OPI range, Your Web or Mine :)
This Shade is a part of the OPI "The Amazing Spiderman Collection", with other colours in the collection including:
- Call Me Gwen-Ever (coral red)
- Into The Night (shimmery royal blue)
- Just Spotted The Lizard (duo-chrome green gold)
- My Boyfriend Scales Walls (white creme)
- Number One Nemesis (murky green shimmer)
- Shatter The Scales/Green Shatter (teal crack polish)
As you can see, it is a bright pink shade with a slight pearl finish, and as with all other OPI Nail Lacquers, it doesn't contain DBP, toluene or formaldehyde.
After applying the nail polish, it comes off as looking a little frosty, not like how it looks like in the bottle. For me, it's a pro and con thing, cos it looks nice on my nails, but it looks different on my toenails :/ In the applications below, I have applied two coats, and you can see for yourself how pretty they look.
This is the colour against the sun, it looks darker and metallic-ish.
This is the colour with the sun behind me. The colour turns a little lighter, and much more suited to those working in a more corporate environment.
Verdict: 7/10. You would expect the quality of the nail polish to be good, considering it's OPI, and it is. It lasted me almost two weeks, without a chip, and even when it started chipping, chunks of it doesn't come off, like other polishes that just disintegrates once it starts chipping.
It looks good applied on the nails, making your hands looks very feminine, but personally for me, I feel that it's a very big NO NO if you want to apply it on your toenails. If applied on the toenails, the colour comes off as looking a little gypsy-ish, and not my cup of tea.
Repurchase: Maybe, cos RM63 really is a little steep for nail polish, especially if you don't always use them in the first place
Last comments: On it's own, it's a fairly good shade to own if you love pink or the variable colours, but if it were to be part of a collection, I wouldn't say it should be in the Amazing Spiderman Collection, it would suit the Minnie Mouse Collection, or even the Mariah Carey Collection more.
The OPI Nail Lacquers retails for RM63.00 at selected Nail Parlours, and is also available at Amazon.com for $9.00.
Til the next time, stay beautiful!
