Nail of the Day: OPI A-Taupe The Space Needle

Today's NOTD is A-Taupe The Space Needle, from OPI's new Touring America Collection. Now I have to admit, I mostly bought this because of the name; I have many wonderful memories in Seattle, and the Space Needle itself. I'm not insanely crazy about the color of this polish, partially because I feel that the name is misleading. This definitely does not strike me as a taupe color, I would describe it as more of a golden, "saddle" brown.

On a side note, please excuse the extremely short nails. Moving into a new apartment does not treat long nails kindly! ;)

natural light, 2 coats

This is much darker than San Tan-tonio, but roughly in the same color family. This probably won't be a favorite for fall, but will be nice to pull out when I want something neutral but a bit different.

Would you wear it?
xx, Allison

  5. Personally it's not my type of color just because it's a little too green, but I think it looks fab on your nails!
    Which by the way, I would love if you did a tutorial on how you paint your nails so well, I always end up getting nail polish all over my cuticles!

  13. I would wear it! Especially with a black fitted long sleeve tee shirt, a leopard print scarf, skinny jeans and tan booties :)

    The color also reminds me of a Starbucks Frappucino :P
