A little ode to the city by the bay, one of the most beautiful and charming on Earth.  I love this name; several males in my family bear it.  Out in the world, it seems more than a few papis chulos can be beckoned by the call of Francisco… hopefully they haven’t yet achieved sainthood!

A final San Francisco bottle beauty shot — gorgeous!  Sinful Colors eliminated this varnish more than a year ago from their core stock, then brought it back for a St. Patrick’s Day-themed display… of course I had never wanted it until I could no longer easily have it in my clutches, so I made sure to add it to my collection this season.  Et voila!

Cue Tony Bennett here.
