OPI Texas

Ok, so I have to admit that the one of the few reasons I even looked at these was of course because I'm a Texan and I was hoping these colors would live up to this great I think this state is:) This is a display of the full collection:

I ended up getting 3: Ya'll Come Back Ya Hear? (described as Texan tangerine), Guy Meets Gal-veston (described as 'engaging' coral), and Austin-tatious Turquoise (described as Bodacious blue-green).

Ya'll Come Back Ya Hear?
I actually reallllllyy like this color. I was really curious to see what this whole "sorbet" finish was about or if it was just a fancy name for "jelly". In my opinion, it's a bit different. The jellies that I've tried tend to have a more opaque finish to them. This one doesnt. Every coat was pretty shiny. I ultimately like this one with 3 coats, the color seems alot richer to me. 2 coats would work just fine though. This was by far my favorite of the 3.

Guy Meets Gal-veston:
This is the perfect color for summer. I had been looking for a salmony-coral color for a while now and this is just what I had been looking for. A little sheer though, I guess that's the whole sorbet-thing for ya'. 3 coats here and no VNL.

Austin-tacious Turquoise:
I like this color in this picture, but it was a PITA to I was a little underwhelmed with this. It's pretty sheer for a shimmer polish; which was a big surprise since most shimmers are usually one-coaters. After the first 2 coats there was still a VNL, so I applied a third. Bad idea! It started pulling the other coats :( The end product is nice....but I'm not too sure it was totally worth it. I will brave this again when the weather is warmer and maybe I'll have a better experience then. I will keep you updated.

All in all...from what I could tell, this collection is pretty cool. There are still a few colors that caught my ya' never know.

  1. I picked up all the sorbets. Just had to get a set of jellies/sorbets. I didn't get Austintacious because I thought it looked like other polish I have. Glad to here the sorbets are very shiny that 's a good thing :)
