OPI The Amazing Spiderman Collection: Into The Night & Just Spotted The Lizard Nail Polish Pictures
Spider-Man. I never in my life thought I would know anything about Spider-Man! I grew up with 2 sisters (my brother came along later) and that was that...none of us were into comic books or anything like that, so I didn't know much about the web-slinger. Now that I have 4 little boys of my own, well our house practically revolves around super heroes. None as revered as Spider-Man. Sometimes Spider-Man downright takes over our lives. Then, without notice, attention will dwindle. The Spider-Man suit will be put away in a closet and forgotten about for a bit. Having a never-ending supply of boys though, it always comes back out. I will be sad when we have to retire the suit for good, when it eventually does not fit any of them. I cringe at the thought! I can't imagine life without Spider-Man toys, Spider-Man birthday parties, and even Spider-Man Easter eggs! I basically went from barely knowing that Spider-Man existed, to becoming a huge fan. Needless to say, I was psyched when I heard that OPI was releasing "The Amazing Spiderman" collection!
I picked up 2 from the collection- these are the 2 that felt the most "Spidey-esque" to me. I was baffled as to why a Spider-Man collection would not have a single red in it, but I'm really happy with the ones I chose.
First, here is "Into The Night", and extremely gorgeous shade of blue shimmer that walks the line between being "blurple". I love it. It has a slight blackened effect that is just 'amazing':

I've had the Zoya Fleck collection for over a week now and it's killing me that I have yet to try them. I put a layer of "Maisie" on top of this and it turned out very oceanic:
Next up, the much hyped "Just Spotted The Lizard", a metallic, color-shifting green that has an oil-spill type of effect. It has been concluded by many that this is, indeed, a twin for Chanel's infamous Peridot (See Eugenia's comp, plus the others from the collection here). I always wonder if I wasn't so nail polish and blog obsessed, if I would even take a second glance at some of the hyped colors. I can say that I'm not sure with this one. I do like it, but the main reason I picked it up was to see if it lived up to the press it's received. I didn't expect it to be quite so brush-stroke obvious as it was, but I still like it:

I will leave you with some parting shots of my boys in various forms of Spider-Man gear (oh, and the baby dressed as Batman as well....did you know that Spidey and the Caped Crusader hang out?). Whether it be the Spider-Man suit or a Venom one (lower left), or simply a t-shirt bearing Spider-Man's face-it's all here (a Spider-Man Easter egg too)!
I couldn't leave out my favorite- a picture of my brother (big Spider-Man) with my oldest son when he was 4:
Did you try any of The Amazing Spiderman polishes? Will you be seeing the new movie when it hits theaters? I have a feeling I will be there!
