I Sao Paolo Over There, aside from having a fantastically punny name, is a really lovely, very cool toned, taupe. I can definitely see the purple in it all the time, whether it's in low light or sunlight, but there is also a lot of gray in it. I think it's ALMOST an exact dupe for China Glaze Below Deck from the Anchors Away collection of 2011, but it's really lovely nonetheless. The formula of I Sao Paolo is absolutely perfect, completely opaque in two coats. There are three neutrals in the Brazil collection, and this one is the darkest of all of them. I don't necessarily think "spring" when I see a dark taupe like this, but I really like the color (and it reminds me of Swiss Miss), so I'm on board.
This past weekend was really nice. On Friday it was a glorious ALMOST FIFTY DEGREES.
We let Remy wander around on our back deck for a little while, and he seemed to really enjoy himself. He's always interested in going outside, but we never let him go by himself because he's a wimp, he gets cold and shivers in like two seconds, and you're really not supposed to let Ragdoll cats outside for the aforementioned two reasons, and also because they don't fear predators. Because they're weird. But I did let him watch the birdies.
And then later that night we hit up a martini bar near us, Billy's, and I kind of fell in love with it. I told Ben we have to make it our spot. The munchies are tasty, the martinis are extra boozy, and it's close to home. We had a lot of fun (almost too much), and then went to Ben's cousin's birthday party.
Banana martini, you guys. Yes.
Saturday we went out to dinner with friends, hit up the martini bar again, and then on Sunday we sprang forward which is SO EXCITING BECAUSE SUNLIGHT.
Anyway, that's all for today. Only ten more days until it's officially spring! I think this is the first post I've done about OPI Brazil--aside from complaining that the corals are dupe-y in another post--so how do you guys feel about I Sao Paolo Over there? Are you down with colors like this for spring?
