Mainstream Swatch and Review - OPI Fall/Winter Venice2015 Collection Part II

Press Sample**

Hi there lovely readers! Today on the blog I have swatches and reviews of the second half Fall/Winter 2015 Venice collection by OPI.


 The line consist of 10 cremes (Be There in a Prosecco, Tiramisu, I Can Only Wear O.P.I., A Great Opera-tunity, Gelato on my Mind, Purple Palazzo Pants, It’s a Piazza Cake, Amore at the Grand Canal, O Suzi Mio, My Gondola or Yours?), 1 shimmer (Gimme a Lido Kiss), and 1 metallic (Worth a Pretty Penne) that will be added to the core line. Three limited edition polishes have also been released with this collection: Baroque but Still Shopping!, St Mark’s the Spot, and Venice is the Party.


I previously swatched and reviewed the neutral and nude shades here. Today on the blog I have the earth and jeweled shades.

Gimme a Liddo Kiss
This is a red base with blue and pink flecks and microshimmer. The formula was very nice and was fully opaque and self-leveled after 2 coats. Shown below are 2 easy coats plus top coat.

Amore at the Grand Canal
This is a dark red crème with blue undertones. As above, the formula was very nice. It only took 2 coats for full opacity and self-leveling. However, I did get some staining around my cuticles so I recommend careful application. Shown below are 2 easy coats plus top coat.

Worth a Pretty Penne
This polish is an antique rose gold metallic shimmer (or something close to all that!). It is not only gorgeous and unqiue, but the formula is fantastic. With careful application, all you need is 1 coat for full opacity. But see it with you own eyes! Below is 1 coat plus top coat.

O Suzi Mio
This is a dark eggplant crème that looks a bit darker on the nail than it does in the bottle. This one also had a very nice formula. As above, it only took 2 coats for full opacity and self-leveling.

My Gondola or Yours?
This is a dark charcoal crème with a very subtle microshimmer. Unfortunately, the microshimmer is not noticeable once it’s applied onto the nail. The formula was bit thick and kept pulling a bit as I applied it. However, it only took 2 carefully applied coats for the polish to self-level and become fully opaque. Shown below are 2 coats plus top coat.

Overall, I love several polishes in this collection and I think all of the shades are great for Fall and Winter. However, Worth a Pretty Penne and It’s a Piazza Cake stood out for me.

The OPI Venice Fall/Winter 2015 is now available at beauty retail stores nationwide.
As always, thanks for reading!
