OPI Venice Limited Edition Shades

OPI Venice The Party Venice Collection 2015_1

OPI Venice the Party? - OPI Venice Collection f/w 2015

Let's start right here with OPI Venice the Party? (above). It's one of the two blues from this limited edition offering and I'm somewhat drawn to it because right now, it's summer and I want to wear ocean colours all the time.

OPI Venice the Party? - OPI Venice Collection f/w 2015

OPI Venice the Party? (above) From pretty much all angles, it looks the same. A tiny bit streaky when it dries down, and a lot shimmery, this jewelly toned turquoise is one of those shades I just gravitate towards. I have a lot of them from OPI. I'll show you shortly.

OPI St. Mark's the Spot - no top coat - OPI Venice Collection f/w 2015

OPI St. Mark's the Spot (above). Definitely a little more fall/winter, right? And definitely a shade you probably already have, right? Uh, I don't. I mean, I get close, but I don't have a complete dupe in all of my OPI blues.

OPI St. Mark's the Spot w Top Coat - OPI Venice Collection f/w 2015

OPI St. Mark's the Spot (above). If you hit this one with shiny top coat, you bring out so much more metallic shimmeryness. You should do this. Yes.

OPI Venice Swatches OPI Baroque But Still Shopping 2015 Beautygeeks

OPI Baroque... but Still Shopping! (2 coats, no top) - OPI Venice Collection f/w 2015

OPI Baroque... but Still Shopping! (above). From outside the bottle, this shade looks like it'll be something special - in a good way. But for me, once out on the nail, it's really, really not. That's two coats in the above shot and while it looks okay there...

OPI Venice Swatches 2015 Baroque But Still Shopping Beautygeeks

OPI Baroque... but Still Shopping! (2 coats, no top)

OPI Baroque... but Still Shopping! (above). It's lumpy and disjointed. I find it unappealing and completely unrefined. It's a mish-mash of different sizes and shapes of glitter that's mixed with a dull, almost-matte-metallic-greeny-gold-ness finish. If I hit it with top coat....

OPI Baroque... but Still Shopping! with top coat

OPI Baroque... but Still Shopping! (above). Top coat makes it look marginally better, but still no, it's not for me. I'm not everyone, though, it's true. Some people will love this the same way I love OPI It's a Piazza Cake.

OPI Venice Limited Edition Comparison Swatches (above). Ta da! I whipped out everything OPI I had that comes close enough to show you. If it's not there, it's either not similar enough or I just don't have it. Feel free to ask though. It's possible I missed something when I went through my hundreds and hundreds of OPI swatch sticks.

If you'd like to get closer to the individual comparisons, I've made the above handy slide-show thingy of larger images. The response to the gallery we put in the This is OPI Starlight post we did was pretty swell.
