As with the last manicure I did with the OPI Spiderman collection, this is a look that used striping tape.
The orange color is OPI Call Me Gwen-ever. It's a lovely bright-yet-dusty orange creme. It has good coverage. You would only need two coats for a regular manicure; for this one I used one thickish coat on top of the white base (OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls). It's quite an interesting color, though usually I do prefer my cremes a touch brighter.
The pink frost is OPI Your Web Or Mine. As you may have read on other nail blogs, this one is a tough color to love. It is a grandmother's pink, and the frosty finish makes it look dated. The color shows brushstrokes very easily, and not even a deft hand can eliminate them completely. Using them in this color blocking mani helped to minimize the unpleasant characteristics.
The combination of colors in this manicure as well as the specific blocking makes me think 60's mod.
As a refresher, this can be achieved by placing striping tape on a dry, painted nail. In this case my first coat was the white. Then, carefully paint on the sections that the tape has created with your other colors. Clear most of the polish off of the brush when doing this, as big beads can drip down and flood your sections. Carefully peel off the striping tape. Let it dry, and finish with topcoat.
I've got one more Spider-mani to share with you -- a combination featuring the last shade in this collection: the shatter! The last look will not be a nail art look, as I found it difficult to do nail art with shatter. :)
The OPI Amazing Spider-man collection will be available in May and will retail for $8.50 per bottle.
