OPI Venice Collection Press Release & Promo Pictures

OPI Venice CollectionYesterday, I received the official press release about the OPI Venice Collection, which is set to launch in August.

There are 15 shades in the OPI Venice Collection. Twelve of them will be added to the permanent OPI collection, and the other three will be limited-edition.

The limited-edition shades are Venice the Party?, Baroque…But Still Shopping, and St. Mark’s the Spot.

The images in this post are all I have for this press release. (I’ve e-mailed PR to see if I could get individual bottle shots to show you. If there are any available, I’ll be sure to update this post to include the photos.)

EDIT (July 29 at 6:37 pm EDT): I’ve updated this post to include photos of the individual bottles!

OPI Co-Founder & Brand Ambassador Suzi Weiss-Fischmann explains, “Dreaming of Venice calls to mind people- watching in the piazza, sipping champagne in a gondola, or enjoying a gelato in an outdoor café as you stroll and float through this extraordinary city. So we created a collection of romantic reds, decadent blues, striking corals, dreamy pastels, elegant nudes, dramatic darks, and luxurious metallics that celebrate this vision of over-the-top indulgence.” This bold and elegant collection will introduce 12 new shades to the permanent OPI color family, and three limited edition offerings to ignite and renew your passion for color with a touch of Italian seduction.

    I cannot wait to see these in a review. I’m loving the names and can’t wait to get a better look at the colors themselves. Thanks for sharing this collection with us.

    I’m so excited for this collection! Venice was my favorite city when I went to Italy two summers ago and I was so bummed I only got two days there. I’m dying for all the food themed names because literally all that I did in Italy was eat (my gelato addiction is REAL)! Can’t wait to see your swatches!

    Does OPI normally announce which colors will be added to the permanent collection prior to releasing a seasonal collector? Seems sort of odd that it will all but three colors. Plus normally the seasonal collections linger on shelves for awhile after their release, so how limited will the limited colors be? Anyway, these look very promising, especially after a few lackluster OPI collections. Looking forward to swatches of “Baroque”! Hoping it’s more a shimmery nude than a proper gold.

    Lovely collection, I’ve seen soms swatches and they make a pretty collection as a whole. Might have promised myself a few bottles whenever the collection hits stores (or Ebay, that is haha).
