OPI Spider-Man is a new limited edition collection that is coming out in May and was inspired by the new Sony Pictures movie The Amazing Spider-Man which comes out in July. This collection features six new shades as well as a new shatter color.
Ever since I was a kid Spider-Man has been my favorite comic book character. I used to watch the old cartoons on TV constantly, so I was excited to see this collection in person.
Let’s check it out.
My Boyfriend Scales Walls
My Boyfriend Scales Walls is a crisp white creme. Surprisingly, this white wasn’t too streaky or chalky looking. I actually really like it because I’m always looking for an easy to apply white. This was two coats.
Call Me Gwen-Ever
Call Me Gwen-Ever is a coral creme. Nice formula it was thin, smooth and opaque in just two coats.
Your Web Or Mine?
Your Web Or Mine? is a frosty medium pink. Not my favorite because of the finish. Looks very 80’s to me. It applied a bit streaky, as frosts will do. This was two coats.
Shatter The Scales over Your Web Or Mine?
Shatter The Scales is a dark shimmery green shatter. I had some problems with this one! No matter how long or short a time period I waited, I couldn’t get it to shatter like it probably should. So on the fourth try I just gave up and wound up with this. Not really a fan of this combo, but it might look cool over something else.
Into The Night
Into The Night is a dark blue shimmer. This is bordering on being a blurple but not quite. Nice shade, good formula but nothing all that unique I don’t think. This was three coats.
Just Spotted The Lizard
Just Spotted The Lizard is a yellow/green/gold multi-chrome. And yes, it’s a dupe for Chanel Peridot, which you will see below in a second. Gorgeous color, however I think we can agree it’s no longer unique. Too bad OPI couldn’t come up with a slightly different multi-chrome combo to make it special. I now have FOUR nail polishes this exact shade! The formula was good, barely streaky and three coats.
Number One Nemesis
Number One Nemesis is a deep metallic green shimmer. And this one is basically a dupe for Chanel Graphite (again you will see below). Very cool shade, just not unique anymore. Nice formula, three coats.

So as you can see, there is virtually no difference in these. I call them dupes!

There is a very slight difference between these one, but they are pretty similar. Chanel Graphite is slightly more silvery, less green and has more glittery bits. But they are super close!
Overall: I am a bit disappointed with this collection. I feel like the shades that could have really stood out were the greens, and they wound up being copies of other shades already out there. The others were just a bit hum drum.
Availability: Starting in May and limited edition.
