A lighter version of St. Mark’s The SpotVenice The Party also has a glowing from within look, but it’s a little bit brighter.

My Gondola Or Yours? might look like a regular black nail polish, but it is not. It’s a black créme with silver shimmer, and the shimmer makes this polish absolutely stunning!

OPI - O Suzi Mio - Venice collection swatches and review OPI fall 2015 nail polish collection

OPI – O Suzi Mio 2 coats + TC

 

O Suzi Mio is a dark eggplant purple, it dries very quickly and shiny, and I find this dark vampy purple shade perfect for fall!

O Suzi Mio is actually almost identical to Skating On Thin Ice-Land from last years Nordic collection.

OPI - Worth A Pretty Penne - Venice collection swatches and review OPI fall 2015 nail polish collection

OPI – Worth A Pretty Penne 2 coats + TC

 

I used two coats for my swatch of Worth A Pretty Penne, but this is a fantastic one coater! It’s a unique shade of nail polish, it’s a mix of silver and copper shimmer, and combined it looks like rose gold.

I highly recommend you add Worth A Pretty Penne to your nail polish collection!

I Cannoli Wear OPI is a white with a hint of gray, this sort of white polish is perfect as a base for nail art!

I Cannoli Wear OPI is a little bit darker than My Boyfriend Scales Walls, but it’s a very close replacement if you’ve run out of MBSW!

OPI - Be There In A Prosecco - Venice collection swatches and review OPI fall 2015 nail polish collection

OPI – Be There In A Prosecco 3 coats + TC

 

This is a nail polish I would have loved, but since I had to use three coats for full opacity and even coverage Be There In A Prosecco is unfortunately not going to be one I’ll be reaching for often.

Be There In A Prosecco is very similar to My Vampire is Buff.

OPI - Tiramisu For Two - Venice collection swatches and review OPI fall 2015 nail polish collection

OPI – Tiramisu For Two 2 coats + TC

 

Tiramisu For Two  has a much better formula than Be There In A Prosecco, which is great, since I can never get enough nudes 😉

OPI - A Great Opera-tunity - Venice collection swatches and review OPI fall 2015 nail polish collection

OPI – A Great Opera-tunity 2 coats + TC

 

I was very skeptical to this nail polish, I did not think a peach color would be appealing for fall. But A Great Opera-tunity has a dusty undertone which actually makes it very fall appropriate in my opinion!

A Great Opera-tunity will be one of my go-to shades this fall!

OPI - It's a Piazza Cake - Venice collection swatches and review OPI fall 2015 nail polish collection

OPI – It’s a Piazza Cake 2 coats + TC

 

It’s a Piazza Cake surprised me, I did not expect to like this as much as I do. It’s a burnt dark orange, but still bright, this is just fall in a bottle to me!

Although I used two coats for these swatches, it covers perfectly in just one coat, the formula of this polish is just perfection!

OPI - Baroque... But Still Shopping - Venice collection swatches and review OPI fall 2015 nail polish collection

OPI – Baroque… But Still Shopping 2 coats + TC

 

Baroque… But Still Shopping is another surprise actually! These swatches does not do it justice, it looks chunky, but it’s really not! I like the combination of silver shimmer and gold glitter. It’s surprisingly pretty and definitely worth checking out!

OPI - Gelato On My Mind - Venice collection swatches and review OPI fall 2015 nail polish collection

OPI – Gelato On My Mind 3 coats + TC

 

Gelato On My Mind is not a polish I expected in a fall collection, it’s a bright minty shade that I would find more appropriate for spring.

OPI - Gelato On My Mind - Venice collection swatches and review OPI fall 2015 nail polish collection

OPI – Gelato On My Mind

 

It’s a very pretty mint shade, but the formula was not very good, having to use three coats is not something I’m happy with.

OPI – Gelato On My Mind

 

A lot of people have contacted me about DNA – Young Stuff Mint, but I don’t think it’s available anymore, but Gelato On My Mind is actually a pretty close dupe!

OPI - Purple Palazzo Pants - Venice collection swatches and review OPI fall 2015 nail polish collection

OPI – Purple Palazzo Pants 2 coats + TC

 

Purple Palazzo Pants is another shade I would consider more spring appropriate, I love these lilac colors for spring! But I do find it slightly odd in a fall collection.

OPI – Gimme A Lido Kiss is a beautiful red polish with gold shimmer, and it also flashes pink in some lights!

Two coats would definitely have been enough for full coverage, but I did feel like I could sort of see my visible nail line, so I went with three coats for the swatches.

OPI – Amore At The Grand Canal 3 coats + TC

 

Amore At The Grand Canal was a disappointment, I loved the color in the bottle, but when I had to use three coats to  make it look good on the nails, it’s just not going to be a polish I’ll reach for.

I was hoping Amore At The Grand Canal would be a dupe for Lost On Lombard, but it’s not completely, it looks much more like Romantically Involved.
