Keeping with my flower theme, today I’m wearing Sephora by OPI Iris I Was Thinner (Modern Flowers, Spring 2010), a bright, deep lavender creme:
Picture taken in sunlight. (As expected of a purple, it’s photographing more blue than it is in real life.) This applied well, but the formula was a little thin and not very pigmented, so I needed to use three coats. I wasn’t sure how to describe this color! It’s sort of in between the soft, pale lavenders and the more vivid, color- saturated purples. Either way, it’s a delicate and pretty color, and it really does remind me of flowers. I paired this with Sally Hansen Lavender Cloud (Complete Salon Manicure) on my toes.
I took this outside the Catacombs of St. Domitilla in Rome, Italy (I thought the catacombs were awesome! Then again, I didn’t mind the cool, dark, tight spaces :)):
