Last week I attended a private screening of The Amazing Spider-Man 2 in 3D as a guest of Revlon. One of their faces, actress Emma Stone, is one of the movie’s stars, playing Spider-Man’s girlfriend.
Revlon have also created a limited edition ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Electric Chrome’ collection that features, among other things, a selection of bright metallic nail polishes.
Revlon went all out for the event, treating guests to a free-flowing champers bar; yummy canapés, mini make-overs and a nail bar.
After you’d received a Spider-Man mani you could walk your nails down a mani cam. (I’d never heard of a mani cam before but apparently it was inspired by one the E! entertainment channel uses to show off celeb manis on the red carpet. The things you miss out on when you choose uncapped internet over Dstv…)
After getting our fill of bubbles, my hot date Jocelyn and I had fun getting up close and personal with Spidey.
We then each grabbed a Coke Zero and popcorn combo and I immediately doused the latter with so much bloody butter salt that the peeps around me started choking. Yumness!
Movie-wise, The Amazing Spider-Man was pretty decent but I’m admittedly more of an X-Men/Avengers meisie. Still, there’s a surprise death in the movie that I totally didn’t see coming. That was a bit of a surprise and I’m not going to say anything further in case you plan to watch it yourself.
Anyway, let me get back to you on what’s happening with that Spider Man collection. In the meantime, if you’d like to create your own Spider-Man-inspired mani, Revlon SA’s nail queen, Chi Chi (she of Nails by Chi Chi), has created a tutorial to show you how.
