OPI The Amazing Spider-Man Number One Nemesis

Happy Cinco de Mayo!! Do you have any big plans for the day? I don't have any at all, just relaxing! Today I have a gorgeous polish from the OPI The Amazing Spider-Man collection, OPI Number One Nemesis. Number One Nemesis is a purported dupe for Chanel Graphite, a polish that I have wanted since it's release, but held off buying due to the price. Needless to say, I was SUPER excited to hear that the Spider-Man collection would have both Graphite and Peridot dupes!!  I know there have been other dupes around, but I never found them anywhere accessible, and I know and love the OPI formula.

Now, lately I am having problems with the constantly overcast sky interfering with swatching. I have not seen the sun in what seems like forever. This polish is SO awesome in person, and these pictures barely scratch the surface of it's awesomeness. To start with, there is no VNL in person and there is a bit in these pictures. There is also a LOT of gold/green shimmer in this polish that you can't see in the pictures.

This is three coats of Number One Nemesis. The formula was excellent, nice and smooth and very easy to apply. It is nicely opaque in person. This polish might deserve a re-swatch on a nicer day, because it is much more beautiful than these pictures make it seem. I think it's a Must Have, and it's my favorite OPI polish so far this year!

OPI Number One Nemesis and the other shades in the Amazing Spider-Man collection should be available now or fairly soon at Professional Salons, including Beauty Brands, Beauty First, Chatters, Dillard’s, JCPenney, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, and ULTA, for  $8.50 ($9.95 CAN) suggested retail for each Nail Lacquer.

I'm not really feeling any of the Spiderman collection. I am more of a brights person :)

I wasn't too excited about this collection either, but I have to say, I love this polish!
