Oh, OPI Spotted, you rare little do-do bird, you.
OPI Spotted is an OPI polish (duh, I know) that was NOT released in the US! I believe it was ONLY available in the Netherlands and France, from what I heard. I managed to swap for it!! It came out at the tail end of the crackle craze and before the Barry M Croc Effects line. Instead of sharper lines and vertical and horizontal shreds like the crackle polish makes, OPI Spotted creates more of a, well, spotted effect.
See what I mean?
Aaaaaaaah! Love it! Aren't you shocked I didn't try it over pink? Heh. I instead started with a not-so-gradient mix of Saved By The Bell Pin 'Em Slater, Saved By The Bell Nerd Alert Screech and Deborah Lippmann Angels. It looked like this at first:
You need the THINNEST COAT EVER. I think the cracks are created from using too heavy of a coat. If anyone has any suggestions or user tips, let me know.
My thumb looks the best.
I tried again over Wet&Wild Private Viewing, a newly released nude color. This was also the wrong color choice:
*Screams In Horror* Left Hand shot!!!!! It actually came out better because I used thinner coats.
I did a better job, I think, but still too thick of a coat. I am used to using thicker coats for indies and cremes.
Sooo, what do you think?! Love it or love it?
