Hello, Everyone! Today I have a color that got me through my week from Hell. Which was the week of February 7-11. Those 5 days.... are never to be mentioned again. But this polish was loyal to me in my time of need. It stood strong while I was weak. I am talking about O.P.I's "Austin-tatious Turquoise" from the new Texas Collection!
All pictures were taken inside, next to a window with sunlight. I used 3 coats and the photos are pretty color accurate.
Can you see the faint pink shimmer?
"Austin-tatious Turquoise" is a a more blue than turquoise shimmer, and if you can get the lighting just right, you can see a slight pink shimmer. I used 3 thin coats of color. It's pretty much opaque in 3 coats, but there is a visible nail line with 2 coats. It's actually a rather sheer color, and it's streaky with 1 coat. The color felt light on my nails as I applied it. If that makes sense.
Application was smooth, drying time seemed normal, but drying is usually irrelevant to me because I always use Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat, which makes any color dry in seconds. This color lasted a very long time. I wore it for 5 days, and no chips. Only some tip wear, which might not even be tip wear, because it could just be the shrinkage that Seche Vite causes. I took all the photos on the 5th day of wear.
And the photo below does a decent job at showing the pink simmer that is hidden unless you really look for it. (Look at the right side of the bottle)
I got this polish at Trade Secret for $8.50. From the Texas Collection, I got this color and "I Vant to be A-Lone Star". They were the only two colors that really interested me from the collection.That's all for today. Everyone, have a great Friday. :)
