I've had this cor for several years (the same bottle) and it still looks & wears great. No it isn't your typical purple but meat if you're not cor blind you can see that. It's more of a link but it's pinky-purple. Purple comes in so many shades, so potato potahto! It was my first OPI purchase years ago & I still love it. continued >>
Sorry - but this ain't purple - fuschia or a blue-toned hot pink is more like it. I selected this as a Gel color and so far it has worn very well (as gels are known for). Not a HG but a bright cheery color to cataoult us into spring. BRIGHT.
I saw this color in OPI's promotional video for their Gel Color line. The model in the video was having her nails done in Pompeii Purple. I thought it was the most gorgeous shade of hot pink I'd ever seen. Perfect for summer toes and fingers. I love the flashes of blue that come out in bright light.
Great shade of shimmery fuschia! Reminds me of hot-pink geraniums. Bright and loud (if a polish could talk this one would scream) with purple and blue flashes. Not a duochrome, but the pretty flashes in the bottle do show up on the nail. Perfect formula. Looks great on toes in the summer. The name puzzles me slightly, but it's such a pretty fuschia I don't think about it for too long, haha.
I find it interesting that nobody noticed or commented on the switch from black to green label. At one point the color was D/C'd but brought back by overwhelming demand. Thanks OPI!
The original is a teeny bit lighter shade and more vibrant than the current version. Shine and wear factors remained pretty close in both versions.
Men love to see this on us ( and always compliment !) It must be the extra feminine vibe of hot hot fuchsia with cool sweet blue for balance that draws everyone equally.
At first glance PP appears to be a classic dk pink-red. Then the blue pops, and everybody falls in love. Magic. Seduction in a bottle.
One of the original color effect polishes and still the best.
Universally flattering, as mentioned by several MUA'rs.
A staple/must have!
This is one of my favorite OPI colors, especially in the summer when my toes have a slight tan. It's more of a hot pink with a bluish tint. I have repurchased this, and will continue to do so.
This is definitly not purple, more like a hot fuschia color! It has a blue/violet flash/duochrome. This a really beautiful summer color! It'll look awesome on my toes too. I was expecting it to be sheer and watery in the bottle, but was very surprised! I could probably get away with one coat, but applied 2 for comfort. This is probably my go to summer color, especially for toes, which I usually don't do crazy colors with. You could probably find less expensive dupes for this, but I bought it, so I will love it :) Good buy!
As other reviewer have stated this isn't really purple. It's a saturated pink with a soft hint of lilac. If you want this colour, but even edgier I would recommend China Glaze in Pink Voltage. It is similar except the "hint of" is a bit more blue toned, and the pink is neon.
I prefer the formula and brush on this OPI bright polish: it was amazingly creamy and pigmented even at the first coat. It contrast beautifully against my NW15 fair skin. Also it has not chipped for a few days, when using a base and top coat. I prefer to use this on my toes, though it is just as lovely on your hands. I would recommend and repurchase!
It's not as purple as much it is a pink or fuchsia. Gorgeous fun, summer-y colour.
I was looking for a light purple, and Pompeii Purple looked like the color I wanted from the drugstore.com website. It's a gorgeous color, even though it's not as dark as I had hoped. It's a deep pink with an iridescent sheen. It would look perfect on my toes, if I had a suntan. I don't wear color on my nails, so this Pompeii Purple won't work for me...
