Peridot Green and Two Plums

So, to continue a theme that kind of has been running through my head, I'm working on seeing if my polishes stamp or not. I had gotten two bottles of OPI Just Spotted the Lizard, somehow, and thought it might work in a second career. We shall see.

First a couple of plums.

Rescue Beauty Lounge Purple Haze

Three coats and a beautiful formula. I wish I had a back up of this one and toyed with doing so as RBL began to run sales prior to shuttering their doors. It's demure, but not too unsaturated so as to end up looking like a gray. It's a bit blue here, but not as red violet as I've seen other photos. As a comparison, here's Nicole by OPI Orchid you not as a comparison:

Perhaps too blue, still, but still, it's got a purple thing that doesn't suggest violets, just plums.

You might see this one on blog sales, live journal nail polish sales, eBay, etc. RBL is toast.

Here's Sparitual Solitude. I thought I'd blogged this one before, but haven't given it it's own showing:

Definitely needed three coats, but if you have this one I think you could decant some and make a beautiful plum jelly. I wore this several times and the formula is quite beautiful, too.

I sold a backup bottle on eBay, but right now it's going for about $12.00 on Sparitual's site (gosh, I remember when they were $10!), but you might find it for less.

Here are some stamping experiments.

I would say that it's a very subtle effect. Almost invisible, but I think it might work as a topper. I don't dislike it, though, as a stamping polish.

Sparitual Solitude stamped with Bundle Monster Secret Garden plate 712.
This is more of what I expected. I think the index finger barely shows, but I kind of like the way it disappears.

OPI Just Spotted the Lizard is available online, it was from the Spiderman collection by OPI, though as you can see from my previous post, there are a ton of dupes.

Thank you for reading my little nail polish journal!


  1. Great purples! And I am surprised the OPI stamped so well...guess it's more metallic than I thought...
