OPI - Austin-Tatious Turquoise

Hey folks. How are you all? I'm supposed to be studying for my uni exams but am seriously procrastinating! Wooops! Today I have OPI's Austin-Tatious Turquoise from the Texas collection. This is a really pretty colour in the bottle, a sheer dark turquoise with a beautiful glass fleck shimmer, with some subtle pink duochromeness. This colour does not translate onto the nails at all. Out of all the OPI colours I have tried, this has got to have the WORST formula ever! It is very watery and would slide away from the tip of the nail, leaving it looking a bit worn and torn. I applied 3 thick coats of this on each nail. It does look quite nice, but applying was dreadful!

Here are some pics

Do you own this colour and have difficulties with it? Let me know!

Thanks for reading!


  1. That looks so pretty! Too bad about the formula though.

  2. Very pretty! I had the same formula issues with my mini bottle of this- very watery :(

  3. I have this and hate the color, it looks such a pretty turquoise in the bottle and such a dirty turquoise on your nails :( I usually cover it with silver stamping!

  4. This is so pretty.

    I love the blue but sucks the formula is bad.
    I love the shimmer.

  5. Such a pretty color! Sad that it's a pain to work with!
