OPI Amore at the Grand Canal Swatches & Review

As we get closer to Christmas, I’m trying to wear more festive red nail polishes. It’s not that I don’t like reds other times of the year. It’s just that greens capture my heart. ūüėČ

I’ve received numerous compliments about¬†OPI Amore at the Grand Canal¬†from the Venice Collection, and even though it’s a simple red creme nail polish, it just shows you that sometimes, simplicity is appreciated!

In the next little while, I plan to bring you some freehand nail art. I’m going to try painting some fun designs, so stay tuned.

Key Notes

OPI Amore at the Grand Canal Review

Colour

Elegant and demure, Amore at the Grand Canal by OPI is a classic red that’s easy to sport. It’s nothing crazy, but it’s sophisticated, traditional, and feminine.

Since the holidays are quickly approaching, I decided to slick on this shade. (I ended up putting some glitter on top, which you’ll see in a future post.) But even by itself, it’s fun and festive.

Finish

The creme finish makes this polish no-nonsence. It’s easy-going like Sunday morning, and it’s festive without having the elf bells and whistles. ūüėČ

Also, I found it very easy to remove, which is typical of creme polishes. However, keep in mind that the red has a tendency to cling around your cuticles. Just wash your hands with soap a few times to reduce the redness. It doesn’t stain, so don’t worry!

Application & Formula

The application was easy peasy. Smooth to go on and fully opaque. Even with the first coat, I got wonderful coverage. With two coats, it covered all the nail lines.

Amore at the Grand Canal by OPI is a polish that could very well be your everyday polish, if you’re into reds. It’s not high-maintenance, and the even coverage is great!

Pros

  • Classic red creme
  • Fully opaque in 2 coats

Cons

  • Can cling to your cuticles during removal, but it doesn’t stain

Final Verdict: 8/10

If you’re looking for a holiday red nail polish that isn’t bright and that has a more subdued appearance, Amore at the Grand Canal by OPI is a great choice!

What’s your go-to holiday red nail polish? Have you ever been to the Grand Canal? What would you layer over OPI Amore at the Grand Canal to create a festive manicure?
