If you're a polish fanatic like me, you've been wracking your brain, thinking how you can get access to the newly released, exclusive to France, OPI Spotted. I've had a couple leads but nothing concrete yet...and did have a source on one but it was just more money than I wanted to part with for a bottle that I'm sure will be more accessible to the rest of the world soon...or soon duped by a competitor. I mean...how many companies now make shatter?....magentics? I think it's only a matter of time before some competitor comes out with Dotted or something....here's to hoping anyway!
So when I was looking through my plates last night, I came across this image plate and got to thinking, I have Spotted! Why am I wanting a bottle? This is what I came up with.
Started with a base of OPI DS Original. This is three coats, no topcoat. When I was looking for a polish last night, it dawned on me that with the gorgeous, beautiful sunny days we've been having this week, I should have been wearing a holographic polish every day! But no, I've been sporting cremes. Usually layered with glitter. That's me...I'm the one wearing cremes in the summer and want to crack open my holographics in the worst snow storms of the winter. But a holographic I did pick and it was DS Original.
Stamped using black Konad special polish using XL D. Didn't do too good of a job at the stamping at the tips as you can see on the index and middle finger here.
But nothing a little black polish and a fine tipped brush doesn't fix as you can see below!
Added a coat of Sally Hansen Fast Dry top coat in the black bottle so as to not diminish the holo.
And just for fun, wayyyy too many pix of this mani because I can never pick just one!
Now, I know this isn't 100% close to OPI Spotted....or even 75% for that matter! But it will have to do until I finally figure out a way to get it...or its been duped by another company which I'm sure is in the works already. I think with a bit of dots and tweaking, OPI Spotted could be closer replicated with this image plate. Or maybe OPI will realize that the rest of the world outside of France needs to have this and figures out a way to get it distributed. Until then, I'm good. Or at least resigned myself to the fact that I'll have to be good with it as this is probably the closest I'll get to OPI Spotted for a while!
