OPI Venice Mini Set Swatches!

*Sent for review*

Happy first day of fall!!! Time to break out all the fall nail polish, the pumpkin everything and start raking leaves! Today I have the OPI Venice collection mini set for you, a great little selection of polishes from the big OPI fall collection.

OPI A Great Opera-tunity is a melon-tinted beige creme. OPI calls it a "lush melon", but it has much more of a neutral tone to it than a bright orange melon. 

This is two easy coats of A Great Opera-tunity. It was easy to apply and opaque in two coats. The formula was a great consistency, it just glides on the nails.

OPI Amore at the Grand Canal is a ruby red creme. It's a great red, very rich looking for fall.

This is two coats of Amore. It was easy to apply and nicely pigmented. This isn't a jelly, but it has some of that squishy feel to it.

OPI Worth a Pretty Penne is a shimmery pale copper. It's more of a soft burnished rose gold, not a bright copper penny color. I love this shade of polish, so this was one of the colors I was most excited for in this collection!

This is two coats of Worth a Pretty Penne. It was easy to apply and nicely opaque. It also was pretty smooth, not too brushstroke-y, so that was great news!

OPI My Gondola or Yours? is a black creme. I think there might be some hidden shimmer in here, but it's pretty well hidden. For all intents and purposes, this looks like a creme when it's on the nails.

This is three coats. The first two were still a little patchy looking, so I did a third for full coverage and a smooth look. With a color this dark, I was hoping for a one coater, but no dice.

The Venice mini set is a cute selection of some of the useful, basic shades in the collection. If you're looking for a new red creme, neutral creme, and black, this is a good option. And who doesn't love a rose gold shimmer?! I might have to buy a full size bottle of Worth a Pretty Penne!

The OPI Venice collection is available now at Ulta, and professional salons.
