Key Notes

OPI Muir Muir on the Wall Review

Colour

Muir Muir on the Wall by OPI is a deep purplish plum that’s as enchanting as a cauldron filled with an evil magic potion!

Although this polish is dark and brooding, it doesn’t look blackened. I appreciate this because I really have to be in the mood for near-black shades.

It looks darker on the sides of the nails, and down the middle, it really catches the light. It has that glowy look that I’m sure will make you stare at your nails throughout the day. :)

Finish

Muir Muir on the Wall by OPI has a shimmery finish, so when you look closely, you can see little sparkles dance like fiery fairies on your nails. It’s really neat to see!

When it comes to vampy shades, I think that a shimmery finish really plays well with them.

Application & Formula

The formula was very pigmented, so I only needed 2 coats to get complete opacity, and it applied pretty smoothly. This polish definitely didn’t cause any problems – it was a joy to paint with.

Pros

  • Sexy, vampy plum
  • Beautiful shimmery finish catches the light
  • Smooth, pigmented formula
Cons

  • There’s a Con? Then I’m oblivious to it! ;)

Final Verdict: 10/10

OPI Muir Muir on the Wall was perfect! I loved the way it applied and how it looked. It wasn’t too dark that it made me think I was wearing a black polish. It was vampy enough to look sexy, but it still caught the light to showcase the colour better. Love it!

What was the most recent vampy shade you’ve worn? If you’ve been following my OPI San Francisco Collection swatches, which would you consider to be your top 3 picks?

    That looks amazing!

    Could you compare it to German-icure by OPI and Every Month is Oktoberfest (OPI) from the Germany Collection please?

    Thanks! I love your blog because you have so many pictures; I can easily decide whether or not I want to buy the polish you posted!

      Hey Karen!

      I’ll have to dig out those two shades for you. :) If I don’t blog about the comparison, I’ll try to Instagram the comparison photo at least.

      Thank you so much for your kind words. I really appreciate the encouragement. It’s nice to know that someone finds my posts useful. :)

    What a lovely shade; I will more than likely end up buying it when released.
    I an really enjoying your blog because you provide so many photos using different lighting scenarios and your reviews are to the point.
    Maybe you can do a blog series comparing your nail polishes by shade/tone, maybe even brand specific like all the OPIs that are bright pink, etc., or just all those that are bright pink in general. For example, the majority of my polishes are OPI, and many are very similar to each other with only slight variations, so I feel repetitive and blah. The shade you’re reviewing looks similar to so many others, I am at a point where I don’t want to invest $9 on a polish that looks almost identical to another. Case in point, Lincoln Park at Midnight and Vampsterdam.
    It’s just a thought – you have great photos, and seeing a boatload of similar shades together would help so many of us narrow it down.

      Thank you so much for taking the time to leave me such a thoughtful comment. I love reading what my readers have to say – it’s encouraging! I try to reply to comments as soon as I can to let readers know that their voice is heard.

      That’s an awesome idea. Thanks for telling me. I could do something like that! I’ll have to think of which shades to compare. Hmm! Food for thought!

    Since getting into nail polish in 2010, I have purchased every one of OPI’s fall vamps without question. I bought a lot of them from years prior (Royal Rajah Ruby, Midnight in Moscow, Black Cherry Chutney, etc.). But for some reason I just can’t with this one. I feel like I already own it several times over. I’m sure it is slightly different than the others but really, how much different can it be? How many blackened red fall shimmers are they going to foist upon us? Maybe I’m just getting jaded with the nail polish game.

      Hey Megan!

      Wow, that’s a great collection you have assembled then! And that’s awesome you snatched up those amazing shades while they were readily available. Lots of people are now trying to hunt them down!

      Royal Rajah Ruby is a gorgeous polish! :)

      I understand how you’re getting tired of seeing similar shades. Sometimes I burn out on certain colour families. Then I move over to another. When I first started collecting nail polish more seriously, I gravitated toward purples. But then I hit a saturation point. Luckily, I found greens, and the rest is history. ;) Only now am I getting back to purples. I think it’s good to have a rotation or else you can get tired of something easily.

    I’ve only just found your great reviews and you are responsible for me ordering both Muir Muir on the Wall and Seche Vite dry fast top coat.

    I’ve been limited to only painting my toe nails for some time as I got so tired of spending ages painting my fingernails only for them to smudge or chip within a few hours. I really needed some good advice and to try some new products. So fingers crossed OPI and Seche Vite are strong enough to withstand my lifestyle!

    Great photos and objective write ups, thank you so much!

      Hey Annie!

      Welcome to Swatch And Learn! I hope that you’ll visit again soon and leave another thoughtful comment. I read every single comment that readers leave on here, and I reply as soon as I can. My response time may not be the same day, but I do my best to get back in a timely manner because I want readers to know that their voices are heard and that they’re important!

      You will love the two polishes you bought, and Seche Vite will change the way you polish your nails. I don’t know how I painted without a fast-drying top coat years ago.
