Manicure Monday: Ocean Side

Happy Labor Day weekend everyone! Hoping everyone is enjoying a little time off and relaxing over the long weekend. Since this weekend usually marks the end of summer, I decided to sport a color that straddles the seasons. This pretty blue isn't as bright as it's spring and summer counterparts, it's got a tiny bit of a dusty quality (though not as dust-grey-blue as the color I have waiting in the wings for you next week). Plus, it's name, Ocean Side, is apropos for the weekend, seeing as that's where most people flock to down here in Florida for Labor Day weekend. I got quite a few compliments as I wore it this weekend too. This one's definitely a keeper. I'm pretty sure this one is also part of their permanent collection, so you won't have to worry about having a hard time finding it in stores.

As with most of my Sinful Colors polishes, this went on like a dream. It's opaque, pigmented, and doesn't streak. I'm wearing my typical two coats.

What do you think of this color? Is it dusty enough to still wear in the fall? It's a bit tricky to get into the fall spirit down here in the land of heat and humidity, since we really don't get much seasonal change. We tend to have to put a little twist into fall style to keep it bearable in 90 degree weather, which can make it a bit hard for me to let go of colorful polishes.
