Manicure Monday -- OPI Muir Muir on the Wall

14 comments
Today's manicure features Muir Muir on the Wall from the San Francisco Collection by OPI.
I got the mini set for Christmas that contains 4 mini nail polishes from the collection in the colors First Date at the Golden Gate, Muir Muir on the Wall, In the Cable Car-Pool Lane and Peace & Love & OPI. The San Francisco Collection came out as OPI's Fall and Winter 2013 collection, but some colors can still be found in Ulta store or on OPI's Amazon store.

Muir Muir on the Wall is a smoky plum with burgundy shimmer. I really like how unique this color is. In different light, it looks like a very cool brown. It can look a bit dirty, but I think the color is very chic and appropriate for the winter season.

The first coat applied terribly! It was streaky and patchy and had me very concerned. The first coat looked like a sheer black with burgundy shimmer. The second coat was much better. It evened out and became opaque, and I got the true color that you see in the bottle. Some nail polishes need the second coat, and Muir Muir on the Wall is one of them. Since this is a nail polish mini, it has a small brush rather than the extra large bush in OPI's full size bottles. I don't mind a smaller brush. It helps with precision, so I don't make a mess. My only complaint with the OPI mini bottles is that the names are not listed on the bottles. I wish OPI would put a sticker on the bottom of the mini bottles like they do on the full size ones.

2 coats in natural indoor light

2 coats in direct sunlight


I have been wearing this shade for a couple of days, and it did chip on the second day that I wore it. That's probably because I have been skipping a top coat on most of my manicures lately. This may be a shade for which I have to make an exception. Muir Muir on the Wall is a beautiful, trendy color, but it's not long lasting on its own.

  3. Gorgeous. I love the color. Kind of looks like a wine/grape combination. I haven't tried OPI nail polish yet, but I think I should give it a try. I'm kind of impatient though and it seems like I have to apply multiple layers of polish before the true colors come out.

    1. Thank you, May! You should definitely try OPI, but I wouldn't start with this color. Maybe try one of the really popular colors in the permanent line. If you like dark nails, try Lincoln Park After Dark. Cajun Shrimp is a really nice popular coral that is nice in the summer. My favorite is a nude -- Tickle My France-y -- which I featured in another Manicure Monday post. So many choices! Thanks for stopping by!

  5. This is such a gorgeous shade. I am currently wearing a similar color but it's a cream formula. I think I like Miur Miur better than what I'm wearing. Thanks for sharing!!!
