For some unknown reason, OPI Spotted isn’t available in the UK. I suspect it may have a non-approved ingredient in it, but the truth is, I don’t actually know. However, it’s a super nail effect – this is not my best manicure as I’ve smudged the black slightly, but you can see from the pictures that I started on the forefinger working towards the little finger and each one is an improvement on the last.. a learning experience in pictures.
I’ve used P2 Color Victim in Electric underneath so you can see the full ‘spotted’ effect, but actually looking at other nail blogger’s swatches, I think a good metallic or even a deep black-ish red would also look amazing. There is a very subtle but intriguing result to be had by using a dark base with Spotted on top – I’d like to do this over a navy shimmer.
You only need a very, very thin coat of Spotted over the top of your chosen colour.. you can see I went a bit heavy on the first two nails, finally getting it right by the last nail.
I got mine from Sephora in France where they still have some stock (last checked yesterday).
