OPI Muir Muir On The Wall | Swatch and Review
This is a swatch of OPI Muir Muir On The Wall, from the San Francisco collection of Autumn 2013.
The final effect of this polish is of an auburn brown with bronze shimmer. In make-up though, it’s a copper/bronze shimmer in a sheer black base. It is supposed to be, according to OPI, a plum colour. I see that in the bottle, but not on the nail at all. Perhaps it comes out more in the sunshine.
I wasn’t sure what the “Muir” in the name referred to, but after Googling, I think it may refer to the Muir Woods National Monument, a forest of redwood trees just outside San Francisco.
It painted on smoothly and evenly and dried pretty fast too. It needs at least two coats. This manicure shows two coats, but when I held my fingers up to the light, I could still see through the nails slightly. On a sunnier day this might have bothered me, but it’s completely overcast today, so it didn’t matter to me.
My bottle of Muir Muir On The Wall came from Nailpolish.co.uk. They have all sorts of polishes, including OPI, Barry M, China Glaze, Orly, Rimmel and Essie. The OPI nail polishes cost from £4.95 for colours from older collections, then there are lots at £5.95 or £6.95, and then those from current collections cost £12.50. They also sell the Designer Series (DS polishes) for £15.95 and Nail Envy and other nail treatments.
Delivery is free and in my experience it was extremely quick, arriving the following day.
- Colour: two coats of OPI Muir Muir On The Wall
