OPI Taupe-less Beach

I couldn't wait for the release of the new OPI Brazil Collection because the teaser photos looked so beautiful and there were new taupes! I need more taupes! But this time I was smart and brought my wheel swatches with me because I do already have so very many taupes and I'm running out of places to store them all. As it turns out, of the two I was most interested in I São Paulo Over There was almost identical to Rimmel Steel Grey (which I hear is being discontinued) so I ended up only getting Taupe-less Beach. It didn't match any that I'd swatched on a wheel although I have some other new ones that I haven't swatched yet so there may be a new comparison post coming up soon!

How to describe this one? It sounds weird, but it's pinker and grayer than my other similar taupes, which is kind of like saying that it's both warmer and cooler but it's the closest way I can think to describe it. The formula was fine and cleanup was minimal, as you would expect with such a pale color. I reallyreallyreallyreally like these elegant neutrals and they make me realize that I need to upgrade my wardrobe to go along with them. The jeans, t-shirts, and sneakers that make up most of my daily wardrobe just pale in comparison to my fashionable nails!

    1. Hmmm. It's a warm lavender-ish gray on mine. I try to color correct but can only do it for my own monitor.

  2. Interesting! It almost looks like a cool lavender-toned gray on my comp? Very pretty!

    1. It's a warm light lavender-gray on mine. I'd say that pretty much describes it in person, too.
