Let's just cut to the chase. OPI has one of the best formulas on the nail polish market hands down. They don't muck around at OPI HQ, and the new Fall/ Winter drop is no exception.
Inspired by the romantic city of canals, the Venice Collection* brings 12 new shades to OPI's permanent range. They're bold and ooze an air of Italian seduction worth of a Venetian love story.
The brush on all the nail polishes had us sold straight off the bat. The bristles are soft so when you apply the product to the nail, the brush fans out, covering a decent area of the nail. We found that fewer strokes were needed to spread the product evenly, and streaking was not an issue either. Like we said, the formulation of the collection is on point. Of the nail polishes that we tried, they all dried within minutes which is good for last minute, out the door applications. Only 2 coats are needed for an opaque finish, but you could probably get away with just one. What we have been impressed with the most formulation wise, is the durability or stay power of the polishes. As we type this up, we've had Amore at the Grand Canal and Worth a Pretty Penne on for over a week, and most of it is intact! Surprisingly, there is minimal chipping which for us typically starts 3 days into wearing other nail polishes.
Amore at the Grand Canal
Worth a Pretty Penne is definitely our favourite from the collection. It's a gorgeous bronze, the perfect year round shade!
