Today I'm going to start going through the OPI Touring America Minis Collection!
Three of the lacquers in this pack I think are very Autumn appropriate- French Quarter For Your Thoughts, A-Taupe The Space Needle and Honk If You Love OPI. The other one, My Address Is Hollywood, to me is more of a Spring/Summer colour.
But anyways, all are very pretty shades that I think sum up the essence of the 'Touring' collection.
So, to start: Honk If You Love OPI.
This colour is a very pretty deep Aubergine (or for my American readers, Eggplant!) shade. To me, it's one of those shades that pops more when you put it next to black- it's easier to see the real colour of the lacquer when compared to black. It's very smoky and murky, which I really like.
Originally when I put it on, I thought it was quite a burgundy sort of aubergine, but no, in the sun you can see that it's definitely purple.
Onto the swatches!
Like the other 'Touring' shades I've tried so far, this lacquer looks at least a shade or two lighter than it dries to on the nail, so that's something to bear in mind when purchasing.
Two things I'm sorry about with these pics: one- I wore this mani for about four days before photographing it, waiting for some nice natural light, hence the scratchy bits on the nails! and number two- shrinkage! I think my bottle of Seche needs replacing asap!
I used three coats of Honk If You Love OPI here to even everything out. Application was smooth and good with this lacquer, also like the other 'Touring' colours I've tried so far.
To be honest, I think this lacquer's nice enough, but I'm not bowled over by it really. It's just the colour that bores me a bit... others may disagree. Just my humble opinion!
