OPI Number One Nemesis

OPI's new Spiderman Collection has two gorgeous Chanel dupes. The one I'll be showing you today is Number One Nemesis, a dupe for Chanel Graphite. You may recall Revlon made their own dupe of Graphite called Carbonite and while it was close to the genuine article, it lacked some of the fabulously intense shimmer and shine of the original. Well I'm happy to report that Number One Nemesis recreates Graphite in all of her shimmery metallic glory. Number One Nemesis is a smoky gunmetal silver foil with a stunningly complex gold and iridescent shimmer to it. This is one of the most beautiful, kickass foils I own.





In addition to being an all-around awesome color, the formula here is top-notch as well. This was three easy coats. (You could probably stop at two but I am a real stickler for opacity.) Foils sometimes feel a little goopy or apply streaky, but Number One Nemesis has a surprisingly smooth, almost silky texture when applying.

The gunmetal base is lovely enough on its own, but what really makes this polish for me is the extra hit of shimmer. It really amps up the shine factor and makes the polish that much more eye-catching. It's hard not to feel like a total badass while wearing this. If you're still looking to dupe Graphite or just love ridiculously shiny foils, pick up Number One Nemesis. It doesn't disappoint!

    1. I think it looks much prettier in person! You can see the shimmer better that way. :)

  2. Very pretty, but it looks a bit warmer in tone than Carbonite. Do you have the polish to compare? (Sorry to give you more work!!!)

    1. Yep, I have Carbonite since I was willing to shell out for Peridot but not Graphite. I'd be happy to do a comparison for you!
