Neon Black Spotted Nails

I finally got a bottle of OPI's Black Spotted!!! It's been on my wish list for a long time now and I was so excited when I saw it for sale online! I didn't even have to pay a totally unreasonable amount to get it! 

Right when it was delivered I had to try it out! I took off the polish I was already wearing and decided on doing a gradient. I also took pictures of the steps to get this mani!

I started out by painting my nails white and letting them dry for a few minutes. I didn't bother with being too neat since I was going to be doing some sponging.

Once I picked my colors I painted them on the sponge then dabbed the color on my nails. I did that 3 times until the colors were opaque.

Once I cleaned up most of the polish on my skin and let the polish dry a little I painted on Black Spotted. I once again wasn't very neat since I still had more polish to clean up.

Once everything was dry and cleaned I added topcoat and was done.

The next morning I took some pictures for the blog out in the sunshine!

I love Black Spotted!! It was way easier than doing the cup of water and hand sanitizer spray from the Water Spotted mani I did earlier this year. Up close I did notice that if the Black Spotted was painted on a little too thick then it would crack a little but I didn't care too much cause I was just so excited to finally own it!
