OPI- San Tan-Tonio

Hi! Hope all is well where ever you are!! Today I want to share a polish from the OPI Texas Collection. 

This is San Tan-Tonio which OPI describes as "the perfect honey tan".   I think that description is pretty accurate.  I think the color is really pretty. It reminds me of creamy peanut butter or a chai tea latte or maybe a nice cafe au lait, or something, LOL. I am not sure if those are attractive descriptions to you but I love those things.  I did not think I was going to like this  one but I really really do.  I think it really works with my skin tone well. I think maybe if I had a tan working it wouldn't look all that great on me but with my pale winter skin I am really digging this look. I guess it's sort of one of those ugly chic colors.  I can see myself in this a lot. I think it's a nice neutral color for work or play.

The formula on this was great. I still hate the pro-wide brush, it's bigger than my pinkie nail, but I made it work for me.   I am getting used to the wide brush. I wish it was flatter not so full but it is what it is.  I had no trouble with streaking or balding and it was nearly opaque in one coat and fully opaque in two.  It's also got a nice shiny finish to it as you can see in the photos, I did not use a top coat and it was not dull at all. 

I am a big fan of this color. I don't know what it is with neutrals lately but I dig them. What do you think of this one? Skipping or dying to get you claws on it? 

P.S. my new camera is amazing. These photos are from the old one but soon you'll see photos from the new one. It has a "super macro" setting on it which is incredible. I am so excited to be able to take good quality pics without sunlight as it was getting tough with the winter weather!
