Happy Sunday evening! Everybody ready for the week to come?
I recently made a quick trip to visit Austin, Texas. I'd never been there before, and I'm game to go ANYWHERE I've never been! Helps when you know someone in the city, too. I had vacation to burn, so I figured, why not?
They've got a BEAUTIFUL capitol building. I snapped this after we'd spent the day wandering up and down Sixth Street at the Pecan Street Festival. There were LOTS of great vendors, and I bought a couple of pairs of gorgeous locally made earrings. I just love bringing back locally-crafted souvenirs. Got some soap, too.
Alright, alright, alright!
There was an Ulta near my hotel, so of course I insisted on visiting it. If you'll recall, my nearest Ulta is a good hour away, so this seemed like a good time to bring back a mini haul. Of course, you know what I HAD to get...
Yep. OPI Austin-tatious Turquoise. I'd been familiar with this for awhile, but held off in the event I ever DID make it to Austin, but also because it just didn't seem all that unique. I was a bit wrong about that. The picture doesn't quite capture it, but in full sunlight, it reflects a good bit of shimmer and a faint indication of some pinks and purples. Really quite lovely. One coat of this is very sheer, two leaves a faint hint of VNL (seen pointer finger for an idea), and three will get you the opacity shown on my ring finger. All in all, a most excellent and very appropriate souvenir!
