OPI Call Me Gwen-Ever

went to Ulta today! i managed to really control myself and only bought the Zoya Sparkle collection, which works out perfectly for the buy two get one free promo because there are six polishes in the collection. i was super excited this morning to get a call from my local NEX telling me that the 2012 OPI Spider-Man collection had arrived... you can bet i threw clothes on and headed over there right away!

the first Spider-Man polish up for review is Call Me Gwen-Ever, a saturated coral creme. my first thought was... wow, that sure looks dirty on. it's not a pure coral, it has a strong red undertone with a slightly muddy quality about it. it makes for a very interesting color! the formula can't be faulted, two easy coats for full opacity.

one coat Seche Base, two coats CMG-E, one coat Seche Vite.

i have zero idea how this made it into a Spider-Man collection... and why the collection is missing a good red! i'd like to know what they were thinking when they decided on the colors... what do you guys think? is this color a good fit? should they have added a bright red? 

one other thing, i've decided to change the spelling for cream polishes over to creme... that is the spelling most polish bloggers and brands use. i will try and remember to spell is that way from here on... i don't know why i haven't before now! Ria :)
