Maintream Swatch and Review - OPI Fall/Winter Venice Collection Part I

Press Sample**

Hi there lovely readers! Today on the blog I have the Fall/Winter 2015 Venice collection by OPI.


The line consist of 10 cremes (Be There in a Prosecco, Tiramisu, I Cannoli 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 as part of this collection: Baroque but Still Shopping!, St Mark’s the Spot, and Venice is the Party.

Today on the blog I have the nude and neutral shades (6 cremes in total).

Be There in a Prosecco
This is an off-white crème. The formula was a bit streaky but it eventually self-leveled. Shown below are 3 coats plus top coat.

Tiramisu
This shade is what we call in Puerto Rico café con leche (coffee with milk)! It looks appears as a soft beige with pink undertone once applied over the nails. The formula was very nice and it self-leveled without pooling in my cuticles. Shown below are 2 easy coats plus top coat.

I Cannoli Wear O.P.I.
This is a grayish taupe crème that looks a bit more blueish once applied over the nail. Again, this formula applied and self-leveled nicely. Shown below are 2 easy coats plus top coat.

Overall, I love this collection! I am happy to see OPI. offered a palate cleanser from all the earth and jewel tones that will be debuting these coming seasons. I also think that similar to a little black dress, every nail polish addict needs some good nude shades in their collection!

What do you think of OPI’s Venice collection thus far? The rest of the collection will be making its appearance on my blog so stay tuned!

The collection is now available at beauty retailers nationwide.

As always, thanks for reading!
