Hi everyone! I am so sorry I have been away for this long and I am grateful for each and every one of you who kept checking back for updates and also for keeping in touch with me especially on twitter and Instagram.
I sadly had two bad colds almost in a row with not even two weeks inbetween to recover. Both colds lasted for more than two weeks each and wouldn’t go away without the help of antibiotics which I really hate to take. The cough of my second cold was so painful – I have never had such pain from a cold. The second round of antibiotics was also quite strong.
After being sick for so long I definitely learned my lesson to give my body the time it needs to recover.
When I finally was feeling better again I decided to take a little break to give my body the much needed rest after work and on the weekend for a few weeks but now I am back. I hope I haven’t disappointed you with being away for so long. My love for nail polish is as strong as ever (my wallet can tell – it suffered from hauls in the last weeks.. oh boy) and I am beyond happy to post again.
Thank you so so much again for reading my blog and commenting. I will catch up with and answer your comments from the last weeks in the next days. ♥
But now back to the wonderful world of nail polishes. OPI Black Spotted is the effect nail polish of 2012 for me. It was released in France as part of the The Amazing Spider-Man collection and if I remember correcly from my lovely twitter-pals it was spotted (puny!) in The Netherlands as well. Sadly there are no signs of it here in Germany.
After many, many of us are crackled out Black Spotted is a much welcome breath of fresh (nail polish fumes soaked) air.
OPI Black Spotted I love thee. I wish and hope OPI will release more Spotted colors in the future and also release them in all countries. I don’t now why Black Spotted wasn’t released in more countries – there are rumors that an ingredient in it makes it impossible to be sold in more countries but I don’t know if this is true. Have you heard more?
As gorgeous as OPI Black Spotted is it also is a little diva. The application is tricky. Your base nail polish must be completely dry and you only have to apply a very thin coat of it. As a cherry on top you also have to apply it very carefully to avoid clean-up because Black Spotted is quite unimpressed by acetone or any other nail polish remover. Of course when you remove the entire manicure it is not a problem because the nail polish remover then dissolves the base nail polish and you wipe Black Spotted away with it. However when you try to clean Black Spotted up with a brush dipped in nail polish remover or even pure acetone it won’t dissolve but turn into rubber-like particles which you then have to slowly wipe away. No fun let me tell you.
With all its difficulties I still love Black Spotted. I am grateful that the lovely Sam of Fashion Polish CPed one bottle for me. It is worth every cent.
Could you get your paws on a bottle of Black Spotted and do you love it too?
Thanks for looking and have a great week! ♥
