My absolute, all time fav OPI color! 2 coats perfect coverage! Looks fab on my light skin. Works any season on me.Ã°Å¸Ëœâ‚¬
Pompeii Purple was introduced all the way back in the 1991 spring/summer Carnival collection, and has remained as a popular core colour ever since. OPI describe this shade as "Hot crimson erupting with purple", whilst I'd describe it as a Barbie fuchsia with a pearlescent finish that flashes with a violet 'lit from within' glow.The first coat of the polish covers the nail completely, but applies sheer, however this polish becomes opaque with the second coat, and the formula dries quickly to a smooth high-shine finish. A slightly dated shade, but it is a lovely and cheerful all-seasons and all-skintones shade, and the fact that it a solid two-coater that doesn't stain and wears fantastically well is a huge plus. Also; I love OPI's pro-wide brushes makes application smooth & easy, and the width fits my nail shape better than any other brand.
Pompeii Purple is really a dark hot pink.It is a beautiful color.Looks great on my pale cool skin.Went on with no streaking.Two coats gives you a fabulous color.I really love this one and will buy again.
I don't usually reach for bright colors for my nails but I was looking for something bright and fun at the beginning of this summer. I decided to go with a hot pink and narrowed it down to a few different shades, then headed to a beauty store to swatch. This one was my favorite. It's a blue-toned magenta; I think hot pinks can easily look tacky and, like another user said, "plastic-y", but I don't think this does at all. It's definitely a bright and eye-catching one but not tacky or little-girl-ish. It has a slight shimmer to it; I'd almost describe it more as an iridescence than a shimmer. I'm not usually a shimmer fan either but think it looks better like this than it would have as a jelly. A really beautiful shade; bright without being "loud". It applies and wears like most OPIs; i.e. applies like a dream and lasts as long as OPIs do for you. For me, that's not very long, but as long as or longer than any other polish. My work is very hands-on and I work with chemicals so I suppose that's why. This shade is opaque in one coat but I apply two to make sure it looks even and lasts a bit longer. I got quite a few compliments on it this summer, and as fall comes I'll wear it as a pedicure color. The only reason I would hesitate to buy again is because I don't usually wear brights or pinks, but this is exactly what I was looking for and I'll definitely use this bottle up.
