opi - san tan-tonio


I'm back with a post on the other OPI nail polish I bought - San Tan-tonio. I love the puns they use for their names! This was in the Texas collection but from a quick search there are still places online selling it.

This is much less of a unique colour than Stranger Tides which I posted about here, but it's a great neutral colour without being too pale and washed out.

OPI - San Tan-tonio

As you can see, it's a pretty standard chocolatey brown. It actually reminds me a lot of Barry M - Mushroom but annoyingly I can't find it to compare. I did search online to see if anybody else made the same connection but it looks like not, so maybe when I find Mushroom I'll be able to notice the difference. I had a look back at my older posts and I used Mushroom in this post but because it's just for details I can't really tell. Any thoughts?

Anyway, comparisons aside I do really like this. It's not offensive and so easy to wear but without being boring. I like the formulation and how the polish wears but I definitely back up what I said last time - I struggle to believe OPI is worth the price tag. They're nice as a treat and when there are unique colours but aside from that I'll stick to the drugstore. Especially with this polish, because it's not all that unique, I wouldn't repurchase. That being said I am enjoying wearing it and if I ignore the price it is a really great nail polish.

Hope you liked!

What do you think of this colour, and OPI polishes in general?
