Beautiful! I've been lemming this for a while now ever since reading the rave reviews this colour had on the Nail Board. After much deliberation, I gave in and bought a bottle off Ebay. I'm so glad I did because Romeo & Joliet is absolutely breathtaking. This colour is very unique and thus a little hard to describe but here goes. I find R&J to be a deep burgundy brown with subtle microshimmer and the most stunning red undertone when the colour catches sunlight. In the bottle, this is very similar to Changing of the Garnet but since I haven't actually tried CotG, I can't say for sure if they are actually the same colour on nails. Strangely enough, the application with this OPI was slightly streaky. I needed 3 coats before I was fully satisfied with the results. Overall, a great fall colour, both immensely sophisticated and classy. I think it may look a little too goth on pale skins especially indoors but absolutely smashing on darker skintones (I'm an NW 35 for reference). A most definite repurchase.
This is agreat color. It's a vampy dark reddish color warmed by brown and bronze tones. This looks great with my fair skintone, without being too severe. I do agree with the other reviewer though who noted that it goes on a little streaky.
I LOVE THIS COLOUR!! I can't stop looking at my nails! I'm very warm toned (red hair, freckles) and this looks perfect on me. And it's the first time that I've been told that the colour I was wearing was very sexy. If that doesn't move this shade up to my top 5, I don't know what would! It's just a gorgeous blend of brown and bronze.....definite holy grail of nail polish!!
This is a rich, shimmery deep winey-brown... perfect for fall! It will go great with my new tweed suit!
This shade is definately not as red as the pictures people have posted. I was expecting this to be more of a red but instead it's very brown. I don't mind this, but it's not my favorite color. perhaps with a lighter application it would be more red.
On me, it took three coats to get the color consistent. It started to chip half a day after I put the paint on (as in while I was getting ready for work). I've had other polishes hold up a lot better. I really dislike it when I let something dry for several hours then I go to sleep and wake up with the print of the sheet texture in the polish.
I just got this color on my nails for the first time. I really like it a lot. I was getting tired of the summer pastels and this is a nice change. The color looks like a brown rasin and it has the trademark OPI shimmer. I think this is a really great fall color, and it will look nice on all skin tones.
This is my first OPI colour. and i must say im impressed with the quality. haha. i like this colour but without the shimmers. i would prefer something like bogota blackberry. haha. but if i were to buy this colour again? maybe not. i'd buy another colour to try. but quality and colour wise.. im a satisfied customer.
On me, this color doesn't look at red as it does in the pictures below. However, I love this color. My version of R&J is burgundy brown with very subtle red/purple undertones. It's shimmery and looks great as a vampy pedicure or manicure. Great and even application. I got this on clearance, so it might be discontinued soon.
This is a BEAUTIFUL vampy dark brownish-red. The shimmer looks coppery here, as opposed to golden in Russian to a Party, although the base colours are very similar. The shimmer gives it a lot of depth. I have a lot of vampy red shades, and this is definitely one of my favorites.
Pictures were taken with flash:
The color: This is a vampy brown-burgandy with a very unique red sheen to it. The color itself is probably different enough for you to own, even if you have a lot of vamp colors already. It is heavy on the brown.
The brand: I am an Opi-phile. I proudly admit that. I have tried to get into other brands, but somehow none of them quite "do it for me" like OPI. (Except for Nars, but his color selection is very limited.) OPI's last quite long, are super shiny, and have an extremely broad color range.
