spotted at winners - OPI Black Spotted!

Hey everyone! I've been in a bit of a nail-rut for the last 3 weeks, barely even painted my nails. But it's turning around... Especially with the stroke of luck I had at Winners last night!

Of course when I peruse the polish section at Winners, I obsessively read all the labels. I saw a bunch of black bottles and I was like, "Oh look a bunch of Black Onyx." But I picked it up anyway... And to my HUGE surprise, it was the elusive Black Spotted!
If you're not already familiar with this polish, it was released 2 years ago with their Spiderman collection, but only in France. What?! They deprived the rest of us because I believe it was not FDA approved, or whatever. Anyway. People on this side of the pond were paying obscene amounts of money to get their hands on it. I didn't bother to hunt it down, but I was curious to try it. And then I stumble upon it for $7.99 at Winners?! YES PLEASE. (The only downside being that they had none of the little Spotted hang tags on the bottles... But that's just my polish OCD complaining.)

Basically I've been dying to post about this all day since I did my mani with it this morning but I was working! Now's the time!

OPI - Black Spotted (over China Glaze - Too Yacht To Handle)
As with other special effects polishes like shatter etc, you apply this over dry polish, and it works its magic instantly. I hear it can be a bit finicky to get the look you want, but I was really stoked with how it came out on the first try!

You need to apply a seriously thin amount, it should feel like you're not even going to get any on there at all. Swipe quickly, and then it applies perfectly! It is a little annoying to get off your cuticles, so try and apply it nicely.

I had previously tried the "bubbly" effect polishes from Layla and could not get any sort of effect at all. I'm not sure if I had bad bottles of those or what, but I'm so happy this one isn't a dud!

It is a really different look, and I'm diggin' it. Should I do a giveaway for one of these bad boys? Or has everyone who wanted this pretty much got it? Hooray for Winners! (And for those of you in the US, try your TJ Maxx stores, because they are the same company.)


  1. It looks so cool! I really need to check out my local Winners now to see if its there too :D

  2. Ooooh, those nails look good!

  3. I'd personally LOVE to have that polish!!! But I am never lucky enough to win giveaways!! and i don't have a Winners to stalk!

  4. Oh cool! Congrats on finding it :)

  5. what fun! I was lucky enough to find a couple of bottles when Black Spotted was out in France, so I tried it then. It's not my look, but it is definitely a fun polish!

  6. I'm not that impressed with the polish but I still would love to have because it's so special.

  7. LUCKY! I would love to have it!

  8. Ohhhhhhh dear! These are such lovely nail art designs! I would love to try them and keep them in one collection so I could check on them back when I want too. Please dear, please allow me to include them on my Pinterest board for nail designs. :) <3 Loving them much :D Actually until now I am just still trying the basic nail art and I find people like you so talented to be able to do wonderful stuffs like this :) cheeeeeers!! xoxo!

  9. So lucky! I still hope to score a bottle of this one day.
