OPI Venus Di Violet

I decided to post this now because if I don't it will just rot away in my posts page.

I really don't like this colour. I think if it had a little more colour to it, I would like it, but it's just like a nothing colour. Does nothing for me.

Then again it would be great for work or maybe a wedding? Nah, there are way better colours out there than Venus Di Violet. I do love my bright and bold colours though.

This is OPI's Venus Di Violet, re-released with their Colorcopia collection.

I used three coats here. I really didn't like the formula on this one. It was quite runny and gloopy but thick all at the same time. I wouldn't put up with this to do a whole manicure, I'm glad there were only four nails to do.

Maybe it's just too close to my skin tone? I think it could look nice on paler or darker skin than mine. It would stand out a lot more on those I think.


  1. OK, what's my problem - I _really_ like this on you!

  2. The color looks pretty in the pics, but I know exactly what you mean about it perhaps being too light. I have a couple of baby pink polishes and creams that look great when swatched on paper, but just don't work with my fair complexion.

  3. Karina - haha! my sister thinks the same

    Emilita - yay i'm not alone :)

  4. That looks so different to mine, which has less of a baby pink sheen and more darker purple. Is yours the original or the re-release?

  5. Everything looks pretty on your nails. I do like polishes with more color to them. You only polish 4 nails for this blog? Good idea as it should save wear and tear on all nails. Also, sorry about your pictures being stolen. You take such beautiful pictures.

  6. Helen - mine was the re-release

    Lucy - Yeah, a lot of the time I do full manis, but when the sun is out I swatch away! Thankyou :)


Thank-you for leaving a comment, I read every one! :)
