Good morning, everyone!
I know I've been MIA for the past couple of days. I've been so, so busy studying and there's a lot of information to retain as a nurse.
Anyway, I'm back with two exciting collections from OPI. First up, Spider-Man then ending the post with the adorable Minnie Mouse! As usual, tons to cover, so let's get started!
Number One Nemesis
What a great way to kick off this review! NON is a beautiful olive, grey, gold combination infused with silver, golden-yellow shimmers. This was 2 easy coats. Number One Nemesis has ensured its spot on my top picks!

Just Spotted the Lizard
Ahhh, the most coveted polish from the collection! JPTL is a beautiful, golden olive metallic duochrome. I have NO doubt in my mind that this one will sell out F-A-S-T! I mean, how can it not?! It's gorgeous! Needless to say, this is my favorite from the entire collection. This was 2 coats of pure perfection!

My Boyfriend Scales Walls
A white with the slightest touch of gray that dries to a beautiful satin finish. The first coat was a tad streaky, but evened out after the second coat. For a white nail polish, that's a huge deal to me since most of the ones in my collection require about 3 coats for opacity.

Your Web Or Mine?
A pearlescent, frosty carnation/french rose pink. You all know how I feel about frosty pinks; it's just not my color. This was my least favorite from the collection. Nonetheless, this was 2 easy coats.

Call Me Gwen-Ever
A persimmon, or tangelo, if you've never seen a persimmon with a brilliant creme/jelly, high gloss finish. This one flowed beautifully on the nail and was opaque in 1 easy coat. This rounded off my top picks from this collection.

Into the Night
Again, my camera has a love/hate relationship with blues and purples, making it impossible to capture the exact color of this polish. It's a vibrant, sapphire with a metallic/shimmer finish. Surprisingly, this was very sheer. Looking at the bottle, I assumed it would be almost opaque after one coat. This was 3 coats. Oh well, it's a stunner either way! ;)

This combination reminded me of Donatello from Teen Age Ninja Turtles! ;)
OPI: Minnie Mouse Collection
Nothin' Mousie 'Bout It
A sheer, pink base infused with what seems to be glass-flecked pink glitter and baby pink hearts. In certain angles, the glitters flash magenta and yellow. I own nothing similar in my stash, so this was pretty exciting! Unfortunately, the hearts were a pain to load onto the brush. So, I found my self fishing around, hoping to catch some hearts. -_- This was 2 coats.
If You Moust you Moust
A blue toned, pepto bismol creme. I know it isn't very original, but still very girly and feminine. I had a difficult time capturing the exact color, but you get the gist. ;) This was 2 easy coats.
I'm All Ears
A beautiful, glass-fleck jelly magenta infused with violet and gold shimmers. This was a bit sheer, but evened out after the second coat. This has made its way to my top picks.
If this looked familiar to you, this a a pretty close, if not dupe for China Glaze 108 Degrees from the 2011 Island Escape Collection. See image below for comparison.

The Color of Minnie
A vibrant, cherry red infused with magenta shimmers. This is very pigmented only requiring 1 coat.

Spider-Man: Number One Nemesis, Just Spotted the Lizard, and Call me Gwen-Ever
Minnie Mouse: Nothin' Mousie 'Bout It & I'm All Ears
Shatter shattered immediately
2 coats for opacity
Into the Dark needed 3 coats for opacity
If You Moust you Moust was the least original from the whole post
I know many of my readers are over the whole shatter/crackle combinations, but OPI did a great job creating a hunter green shimmer shatter.
