|OPI Number One Nemesis|
The glitter really is pervasive — it was nearly impossible to remove all traces of it when I did my clean up, which explains why my knuckles are so sparkly. For that reason I recommend doing your clean up immediately after your last coat, even before putting on your top coat. I was texting with Anna and Erin as I polished and let it dry a bit too much, so that made my clean up that much more of a hassle.
I really like this one! It's different enough from the many other glittery dark polishes I have in that it's the only one leaning more toward bronze and I particularly like the slight gold shimmer where it catches the highlights. I guess I'd have to see the movie to get the connection to Spiderman, though, eh?
After only one day there was a noticeable amount of tip wear so I decided to swatch Revlon Carbonite on my ring finger and L'Oreal Valiant on my middle finger for a comparison before I took it all off.
|Revlon Carbonite is closest in appearance to Nemesis, but without the bronze/gold cast.|
|L'Oreal Valiant is much more silver overall and has more of a foil finish.|
