OPI Vesper

Hi there! :-)

I've got another color from the OPI Bond Girls Collection to share with you today. Vesper is a dark murky eggplant purple with black glitters that dries to a textured matte glitter finish.






To me, Vesper is the odd child out in the collection. While all the other colors of the collection are bright and happy, this one is dark and moody. The black glitters in here aren't very sparkly, so they look a bit like pieces of dirt stuck on the nails. The formula is also not like the others. It's thin and the glitters are sparse, so I needed three coats for full coverage. At that number of coats, the base is so dark that it looks almost black under certain lightings. And drying time is quite slow.

You can find Versper at your local nail salons and beauty stores such as Ulta and Dillard's for a retail price of $9 for 0.5 fl oz.

  1. I think it's pretty. It could have been slightly lighter, but I'm really fond of how dark the colour is.

  2. hum, hum, I agree with Emma, it should have been a tad lighter - but 3 coats is way too much for at polish like this...

  4. Hi Yun - I love Vesper and being a big fan of dark, dark polishes this was a must-have for me. However I see your point and can understand your hesitancy. I don't mind the three coats though, at least with my other black Liquid Sand - I believe it is called Stay the Night it is not bothering me :-) - take care <3

    1. If you love dark eggplant purple colors in the summer, this is probably more for you. :-) As for the formula, I think I only needed two coats for Stay the Night and Vesper is thinner than that, at least it seems to me.

  5. Seems like an odd choice for a summer polish, maybe they meant to make it more purple.

    1. It is odd... more purple would have been nicer, for sure. :-)

  6. I think this is the only one from the collection that I'm not in love with. It's so dark that it just looks black to me.

  7. Three coats of slow drying polish is way too much for me - and I know that this is only going to look black on me, that naughty polish :D

    1. That's always the problem with colors that dark, no one can tell it's not black. :-)

  8. I'm so on the fence about this one..I love that it's dark purple but most of the time it just looks black

    1. Yea, that's kind of how I feel. It's probably just going to look black to everyone.

    1. Yea, this one isn't my favorite either, probably because it's summer (or I hope so haha) and I want bright happy colors. :-)

    2. yes, bright and happy! i have a mini bottle of this one that i will try at some point. maybe the color will grow on me.

  15. Hmmm...I thought I'd love this, and I WANTED to love it since I love Vesper, but...I hoped it would be more of dark eggplant on the nails, and it just looks black. :( Especially with summer coming, this is an odd one. Oh well. Can't win 'em all, I suppose!

    1. Same... I wish it was lighter so that the purple came through more. But also, it's almost summer and I just want bright happy colors. :-)

    1. Yep, I know how you feel. This one didn't quite speak to me too. It's almost summer and I definitely don't want dark moody colors.
