OPI Muse of Milan Review


Hello nail art enthusiasts!  I got my hands on the entire collection of OPI Muse of Milan!  That being said this post will have a lot of pictures.  OPI is one of my favorite nail polish brands, so I was excited to swatch all of these colors and try them out.  All of the swatches do have top coat.  Keep reading to see what I think about this collection.

Addio Bad Nails, Ciao Great Nails is a shimmer described by OPI as a “wisp of pale lavender shimmer”.  I would say this is a dusty lavender that leans toward a creme formula with a purple violet shimmer in it.  The shimmer is hard to catch with my camera.  It can be seen best in direct sunlight or the flash of a phone. This color would be a great transitional color into fall.  This was opaque for me in two coats.


Complimentary Wine is a creme described by OPI as a “deep bouquet of ripened berries.  This is a deep burgundy crelly formula.  It does have some brown undertones to it.  It was opaque for me in three coats.  This is definitely a fall color that reminds me of all of the leaves turning color.


Drama at La Scala is a creme described by OPI as a “dramatic steal the show teal”.  This is a deep teal.  It reminds me of OPI’s AmazON…AmazOFF but Drama has more blue in it.  It was opaque for me in two coats.


Duomo Days, Isola Nights is a creme described by OPI as a “deep sapphire blue”.  It looks like a dark denim blue to me and is a nice jewel-tone color.  This next to Drama, you can see that Drama has a little more green to it.  It was opaque for me in two coats.


Fall-ing for Milan is a shimmer described by OPI as “bronzed beauty”.  It is a creamy tan base with a bronze copper shimmer running throughout it.  I did not think it was flattering with my skin tone but it is a beautiful color.  It was opaque for me in two coats.  I tried my best to capture the shimmer in this color.


Galleria Vittorio Violet is a shimmer described by OPI as having “brilliant tones of amethyst and violet”.  This is a stunning color.  It is for sure one of my favorites in this collection.  It is a creamy bright purple that has a violet shimmer which was hard to capture on camera.  It was opaque for me in two coats.


Have Your Panettone and Eat it Too is a creme described by OPI as a “indulgent sweet nail color like the Italian delight”.  This is a darker pumpkin orange.  I think this tone of orange says more “fall” orange than like a “Halloween” orange.  This color was opaque for me in two coats.


Leonardo’s Model Color is a shimmer described by OPI as “being draped in the glow of shimmering light and an inspiration for any master artist”.  Leonardo is a deep purple-y blue crelly base with deep purple, violet and gold shimmer running throughout it.  This color is a stunner!  The way this color looks in every light blew me away.  You can see the shimmer at all times, not just in bright sunlight.  I did get this opaque in three coats.


My Italian is a Little Rusty is a creme described by OPI as having “rich chestnut earth tones”.  I don’t know if I would describe this as a brown with a lot of orange tones or and orange with a lot of brown tones.  Either way, it is a beautiful warm shade that is fall ready.  It was opaque for me in two coats.


OPI Nails the Runway is a shimmer described by OPI as a “shimmery granite gray”.  This is another favorite of mine.  I would describe this color as having a gray tinted crelly base with copper and silver shimmer but there are also flashes of violet and blue.  So maybe the silver shimmer is a duo chrome?  They can be best seen when I put it over a black base.  On it’s own, I did manage to get this pretty opaque in three coats.  The last three pictures are over a black base, and the final picture, I intentionally blurred it to try to capture the violet and blue flashes.


Suzi Talks with Her Hands is a creme described by OPI as a “stand alone gray”.  I would describe this as a slate gray that does have a slight green undertone.  It makes me think of a stormy rainy day and gray is a good fall color that will go into winter.  It was opaque for me in two coats.


This Color Hits all the High Notes is a pearl described by OPI as “pearly chrome”.  It is a lightly blue tinted pearl.  I’m not typically a pearl finish person but this is a pretty color and the brush strokes weren’t too noticeable.  I had just taken quite a bit of length off of my nails when I swatched this so I apologize for the inconsistency in nail length.  This wasn’t quite opaque in three coats, but three coats is my maximum number of coats when applying a color.


My Thoughts

I love OPI, so I have a little bit of bias.  I think there is a nice mix of finishes in this collection.  There is something for everyone.  All of the polishes have a nice formula and were easy to work with.  Although I like all of the colors, my favorite ones are Galleria Vittorio Violet, Leonardo’s Model Color and My Italian is a Little Rusty.  If you want to add some fall colors to your collection, definitely go pick up a few or your favorite one.
