Colour: OPI – William Tell Me About OPI
Ok, so this must be part of an old collection or something, because I don’t get the name at all. Seriously, cliché much? Anyway, I think that’s one of OPI’s traits, so… back to the colour.
Anyway, William Tell (for short, okayyy) is described as a burgundy creme, part of OPI’s previous Swiss Collection. Burgundy is good, but the better word I could think of was blackcurrant. It may look black from afar, deep red from some, but it’s actually deep blackcurrant, true to the colour above.
It’s my first time with OPI (yayyy), so I didn’t have a clue on if it was as good as the hype was or worse. I was pleasantly surprised! 🙂 The formula was sooo easy to work with – glided on nails like a dream, consistency wasn’t globby nor too thin, and was perfectly fool-proof. It’s the kind of formula I want all my polishes to have. 🙂
The colour itself is pretty true to the bottle, which I always appreciate. It does look dark from certain angles, though, which makes it lose the blackcurrant colour. For this reason, I didn’t turn it matte (my newest obsession harhar) because matte topcoat makes dark colours even darker.
It’s not as shiny as seen in the photos – that’s me being stupid and forgetting to take pictures before I put on the topcoat. Oh well.
What do you think? Is it a colour you would wear? If teaching (future career is nearer than I thought, oh noooo) wasn’t such a barrier, this would be on my daily rotation of colours. Such a pretty, skin-flattering shade without being your old shade of black or dark red. 🙂
