OPI Fall 2015 Venice Collection Limited Edition Review & Comparison

Hey there! Finishing up with the Fall collections, I have the OPI Limited Edition swatches for the Venice Collection. There are just three polishes, so I won't bother putting them under a cut. Let's get to it!

Okay, so first up, is St. Mark's the Spot. This is a gorgeous electric blue shimmer. It had a very nice formula. It was opaque in two coats. Please excuse the air bubbles. It was hot that day, and my husband kept turning the fan on, and I had to keep turning it off. 

As I am a fan of blue nail polish, I was almost certain I had a dupe, but not quite. This shade is very similar to Super-Powered by Revlon, which comes from one of my favorite collections ever, last year's The Amazing Spider-Man collection. I swear each shade is to die for. The color is exactly the same, but the shimmer factor is much more evident in Super-Powered.

Next up, is Venice the Party? This is a beautiful cerulean metallic with some shimmer. I feel like this kind of blue is pretty popular, though I did not have a dupe in my stash. It had a nice formula. Opaque in 2 coats. 

The last one we have is Baroque...but Still Shopping. This is my least favorite of the entire collection. I feel like I've seen a better version of this from Essie. This looks so pretty in the bottle, but just comes out so ugly on the nail. It's lumpy. It somewhat looks like hammered gold, but not quite. It's very blah, and just looks messy.

And that wraps up the OPI Fall 2015 Venice collection. The limited editions are pretty, but they're just so-so to me as far as doing anything new. My favorite would be St. Mark's except that I have a similar blue that really shimmers, and I get distracted easily by sparkly things.
