Well. It’s the day after Labor Day here in the US which means it is time to put away those summer neons and pull out the fall favorites, right? I don’t follow the “rules” quite that closely but I have been ready to rock some darker polishes for a while now.
St. Petersburgundy is a warm red creme with brown undertones. It really is the color of a nice Burgundy wine. But, if we want to be current, the more appropriate color name would be oxblood, or Chianti. According all the absurdly large September issues of fashion magazines that landed in my mail box, this is the must have color for fall and winter.
The application of this polish was lovely. I used just two coats in my swatches.
This polish was originally released as part of OPI’s Fall 2007 Russian collection. I just loved that collection! Unfortunately, OPI did not add this to their permanent line. It’s also apparently not available on Amazon (seriously). So if you have any potential dupes please leave it in a comment!
