Yes, I managed to get my hands on the elusive OPI Black Spotted! I'm sure you've seen some (or too many) swatches of this, but I'm still going to share mine. This was my first attempt using Black Spotted, and I learned a couple things while playing on a nail wheel:
a.) Apply thin, almost non-existant coats or you won't see much of the effect.
b.) You can go over what you've already done, unlike Shatter.
c.) The more you go over it, the smaller the spots will be.
d.) The manicure underneath has to be SUPER DRY or else you get cracking.
That's all. I could seriously use some more pointers - this thing is NOT the easiest in the world to work with. Here I put it over one of my favourites - Barry M Copper.
I think the result looks kind of like Tiger's Eye stone! I think it looks pretty neat. After a bit of nail wheel experimentation, I think I like this over metallics best, but I can't wait for the winter to wear this over shimmery vampy colours! I think the effect is more subtle over darker colours, and honestly quite unique, but in a refined artsy way - like watercolour on top of oil pastel.
Have you tried Spotted? Any tips for me? (And do you think this is coming to the US eventually?)
