OPI Spiderman collection // swatches, photo, review

To coincide with the release of the latest Spiderman film, OPI have released a collection of polishes inspired by the flick. I have swatches of four of the shades for you today.

Your Web or Mine? is described as "the perfect pink for sticky situations" and is an almost metallic dusty rose shade with cool shimmer running through it. This wasn't the most flattering on my pale skin, so it isn't my favourite from the collection. 

Number One Nemesis is a sparkling gunmetal grey shade that contains a multitude of fine coloured shimmer beneath the surface.OPI suggests you "show your metal in this sparkling nickel", and I am a huge fan of this captivating shade.

Into the Night is a frosty deep-ish blue shade that contains fine silver shimmer. OPI says that "this perfect midnight blue was made for prowling" and while it appears quite deep and dark in the bottle, on the nail it is quite sheer and needs at least 3 coats to look good.

The most anticipated shade from The Amazing Spiderman collection was definitely Just Spotted the Lizard, which is said to be a dupe for the famous Chanel Peridot. OPI says "be seen in this reptilian yellow-green", and I think that is a really cute description for it. This polish is very flattering and eye-catching on, and in many lights appears like a complex golden shade. I am in love with this duochrome shade and think it is the most impressive shade from the collection.
Seriously stunning.

Did you choose anything from The Amazing Spiderman collection?
Do you love the duochrome look of Just Spotted the Lizard?
*These polishes were purchased in a mini set by my mother-in-law. Honesty, always.


  1. Wow! Stunning colours in this new collection! And umm..can I borrow your MIL. She's so nice to buy that for you!!

    1. @Norlin Yes, very beautiful colours in this one, especially the last. She often buys the mini OPI packs, for both of us to use :) She's pretty rad!

  2. oh i really like the number 1 nemeses! what an awesome colour.

    1. @thebeautydispensary It is such a nice shade, I can't stop staring at it when I wear it as there is so much beneath the surface!

  3. Oh I am a fan of the duochrome. Very cool...quite like "into the night" also :)

  4. I was kind of disappointed with this collection, but Number One Nemesis looks great and I was really keen on the shatter polish. The name escapes me but it was a shimmery dark green I think.

  5. I have Chanel Peridot and I LOVE it, it's such a unique colour! Just Spotted The Lizard does look exactly the same!
