31 Day Nail Challenge v2: Orange Nails
Wednesday, May 15, 2013
My friend Deborah is amazing, you know what she tracked down for me? A bottle of the elusive OPI Black Spotted! If you hadn't heard about this polish before, it is an extremely hard to find lacquer. It came out in French Sephoras with the OPI Spiderman collection and hasn't been released elsewhere (edit: been notified that it was also found in the Netherlands!). I had previously been given a small decant of the rare liquid but hadn't really used it since I didn't want to waste it.
For today's orange nails I wore OPI Black Spotted over Catrice Copper Cabana (another polish given to me by Deborah! ♥ ) Funny thing about this polish, even though it looks really neat it is really hard to use! There's definitely a learning curve, for me it was much harder to master than crackle polish. You have to apply it on completely dry polish or else crack will form. Also, you need to do a single super thin coat with minimal over lap or else the spots won't form. This is my fourth attempt at using Black Spotted and my nails still look rather different.
If you can't get your hands on OPI Black Spotted, give this tutorial for water spotted nails by Cute Polish a try.
