OPI Pompeii Purple – More Pompeii Pink?

This week I am loving the gorgeous Pompeii Purple by OPI. The name is a bit misleading – surely it’s more of a Pompeii Pink?! In some light there is a purple hue off it though so I suppose I understand their reasoning :)

Pompeii Purple is a bright fuschia pink with a bluish iridescence to it. The iridescence shows up under certain lighting condition but not all. There’s no shimmer or glitter to speak of, a bonus for speedy removal!

These photos show two coats and a top later of Orly Sec n’ Dry. I should point out that both were applied by a beautician in Jule salon (Malahide village) last Saturday. It’s still going strong – no chips but a tiny amount of wear and tear at the tips which is barely noticeable.

This makes me wonder about Orly Sec n’ Dry, if you have tried it let me know what you think. I may have to add it to my collection :)

It looks great on toes too, which is a bonus. I’m weird about toe-nail polish, I tend to stick to safer colours on my feet so most of the nail polishes I buy are for my finger nails only. Maybe I need to start branching out.

Fuchsia shades usually aren’t for me, but I love the iridescent purple in this one. Sold!

This color makes me feel so cheerful! I will definitely be buying it in Chicago.

Do you wear a variety of colours on your toes or do you stick to the same few? Have you tried Orly Sec n’ Dry?

    I love it….I’m wearing a very similar colour at the moment, its called ‘Sinful’ and I can’t remember the brand!!!!! I got it last week in a Beauty Supplies store…..Oh crikey, I can’t for the life of me remember the name of the brand!! I had never heard of them until last week, I know that much! Its really good, been on my nails since last saturday, no chipping, just slight wear and tear around tips and I have an Orly topcoat on – In a Snap!!! Really happy with the colour and everyone has admired it!!! :-)

    I think it looks really pretty. I’m the same as you I always use safe colours on my toes. I’m afraid of looking dead if I apply green or blue haa!
