OPI Venice Collection: It's a Piazza cake, swatch and review


In the hottest day of this year (so far) I'm here to show you my first swatch of FALL 2015! I do like Summer but certainly not when temperature is over 28°C, and my favourite season will always be Fall. So to dream a little of cooler (yet sunny) days I am bringing you a shade to FALL in Love with ;)


It's a Piazza cake is describe as a "Persimon" creme, and though I realise the colours might not be for everyone It is soooo perfect for me. This shades screams FALL!



Formula and application are a dream to work with. It is super opaque in one coat, but I did two for the sake of closeups, but I suppose you can get away with one coat if in a hurry. Consistency is perfect for a creme polish and the brush spreads so nicely in total control of the polish. I hardly needed any clean up.

I came up with two (simple) nail art designs because this colour is so inspiring for me! First desing it's a quick stamping using OPI with a nice Finnish, from last's year Nordic collection and a few golden caviar beads.





The second design was even quicker using Born Pretty Store flower stickers. Easiest, impossible! (Here and here are some other designs I've done with these stickers if you're looking for inspiration).





I am digging this colours so much, I think OPI totally nailed it with this shade for the Fall collection. I'd say if the colour suits you, this is a must have ;) What do you think of this shade? Yay or nay?

Love,
Nati

    1. Oh no even hotter?! We had a little rain on Tuesday night and weather cooled down. Now we are in 25°C so good! but it will rise again for the weekend. I can't polish my nails in this hot, lol!

    1. Thank you Jacquie.
      You being a New yorker I can totally understand your preference! I've seen Pictures of New York's Fall and it's out of this world :)

  8. Es un color super extraño pero me gusta! Me recuerda a Fagulha de Colorama.
    Muy off topic, estuve viendo el calor que esta haciendo allá! (en realidad el clima en Alemania, pero debe ser similar ya que están cerca). Acá esta haciendo mucho frío, tengo ganas de teletransportarme :P
    Hablando de cercanía, conoces Alemania? Quiero ir el año que viene y tengo mis dudas jajaj
    Besos!

    1. Me alegra que te guste Carol, la verdad no me parece un color para pieles con subtono rosado o neutro, no sé habría que ver.
      Yo te aseguro NO te teletransportes! jajaja El calor en Europa Central y occidental es HORRIbLE. No porque sea mucho calor sino porque la vida no está preparada para ello. Todos los sitios, transportes etc. están concebidos para MANTENER el calor (así ahorrar calefacción durante el invierno) En mi casa llegó a hacer 34 grados DENTRO. Te aseguro que con un bebé recién nacido no sabía dónde meterme. HORRIBLe. Acá es lindo primaver y otoño, el resto del año olvidarlo :(

    2. Uhh si... ya es demasiado (aunque soy demasiado friolenta jaja). Leyendo blogs de allá, varios comentaban que no tenían aire acondicionado en sus casas/oficinas y acá es casi un básico eso, me llamó bastante la atención! Espero que mejore el clima :)
