That’s right, guess what I got!!! The fabulous Sabrina from Polish in Paris got me “OPI – Spotted Effect” for my Birthday!
For those of you that don’t know, back in the Spiderman Collection, France got a Sephora France exclusive, this gorgeous topper I am about to show you, and the US and others got another stinkin crackle! You cannot find this in the US unless you want to spend a ridiculous amount of money on Ebay or have some fabulous friends in Paris like me, or ! hehehe <3
I played through so many ideas in my head of what I wanted to put underneath this topper, and ended up using “Essie – Blue Rhapsody”.
When you paint the topper it’s not like crackle effect, it literally happens instantly. I painted a strip and before I got to the end of the nail the effect had already taken place! The instructions say to simply paint one thin coat over top already dry polish, with the metallic color though I did have to do a top coat first before the effect because it wasn’t working properly most likely as it’s a little different texture.
Thin coats will create very small and numerous spots, thick coats will almost entirely cover you nail with the exception of a couple of big spots only. I also did not use “Seche Vite” as I normally do, I used “OPI – Nail Envy” once dry as I did not want to run the risk of shrinkage with this mani
Here is what I came up with for my first round of ‘Spotted Effect’
The first two are using my lightbox
This was natural light in the car this morning - this is the best picture that matches the color exactly, the blue metallic really shines through the spotted effect.
These last two were under flourescent lighting in the office.
So what do you think of the Spotted effect?
