OPI "A-Taupe the Space Needle"

Happy Monday everyone!
My nail polish of the week is OPI, "A-Taupe the Space Needle."
This is from OPI's Touring America Collection, Fall 2011. : )
I gotta rep Seattle!
OPI "A-Taupe the Space Needle"
I would describe this polish as a dark taupe with a little bit of green. Taupe is grayish brown, and this polish definitely can look green. The texture is a creme finish. I'd call it a mix of taupe with a hint of green olive!
The color applies about one full shade darker than it looks in the bottle.

It applies like your ideal nail polish = perfect!
I used Seche Vite Top Coat almost always now-a-days. I find that my Zoya Amor topcoat bubbles on me (I don't know if it's just my bottle..but with every polish I had that problem since I started using it more)..and Dior Top Coat cracks after it's dry (it's super quick drying btw)..it's so odd and a little sad that it leave little top coat shatter lines in my polish.
Anyhoo! ~ Seche Vite Top Coat, you are officially my HG top coat. : )
I like this color because I feel it goes well with my skintone. Flattering nail polishes are always winners. :D
What do you think? Are you into the muddy nail polish look?
I think this color would look stunning with Matte Top Coat over it as well!
Will this polish win the favorite taupe of Fall 2011? You be the judge. : )
I'm curious to see how the Zoya Fall collection compares to OPI Touring America.
The OPI Touring America 2011 Collection was sent to me to review. ^_^
Thank you!

In non-nail polish news, who's excited for the season finale of The Bachelorette tonight?!
Who do you think Ashley will choose as her fiance? I have my bet on Ben because he looks more like Josh Groban! I totally love his curly hair. : )

In Josh Groban news..bff and I saw him in the movie Crazy, Stupid, Love!! He had a small role (he played a lawyer too! *hearts*) and it was so great seeing him on the big screen! Bff and I have tickets to the Josh Groban concert at the end of August here in Seattle. I'm super excited!! lol My mom, aunt, and sister get to see him this weekend in Grand Rapids, MI! If my other relatives weren't visiting me this month, I'd totally fly to MI to go to the concert with them too! lol They all get to see him in RL before me..I think I've been a fan for well over 8 years now. I own every single one of his CD's and DVD's. :D
