Today I have part two of OPI's new Texas Collection. These six shades are all in OPI's new "sorbet-like" finish, which means that these are what we typically call "jelly-like" instead of creme. Given the formula, these shades are more sheer than traditional creme polishes, so they give nails a lighter, more summery look than traditional creme polishes. "Sorbet-like" or jelly polishes tend to dry pretty fast as well, since they apply thinner. All six of these polishes have that lovely Jolly Rancher-like look (or like squishy Jell-o) that is so lovely on hot, summer days.
Houston We Have a Purple
This is my favorite in the collection. This lovely berry shade looks great in this sheer, jelly-like formula. I used three coats to get almost opaque coverage.
Big Hair, Big Nails
This was the most opaque of all of the shades. Big Hair, Big Nails is a reddish orange polish with the new "sorbet-like" finish. I used three coats.
Do You Think I'm Tex-y?
Do You Think I'm Tex-y? is a dark pink sheer polish. It is a really nice color, with hints of purple, and the jelly-like finish makes it look almost like it is fading in a cool, unique way (more pigmented at the tips, sheerer at the base). I used three coats. (By the way, I love this name!).
Guy Meets Gal-Veston
This is a peachy orange polish that reminds me a lot of a Dreamsicle (especially given that these have the sorbet-like finish! It's like summertime desserts in a polish.). I used two coats and it is still very sheer - like a light wash of color that can be really fun and fresh during the spring and summer.
Too Hot Pink Too Handle
Too Hot Pink Too Handle is a dark pink that is pretty similar to Do You Think I'm Texy? Like the other five in this color, it is a jelly-based polish, so it gives a sheer wash of color. I used four coats of this on my toes and got a nearly opaque pedi; for these pictures, I wore just two coats. I think this is a really pretty pink and it is slightly less red than Do You Think I'm Texy? I love the name too!! So cute.
Ya'll Come Back, Ya Hear?
This brings me back to the candy corn nails I did in October. Ya'll Come Back, Ya Hear? is a pretty orange (more yellow than red) that gives a translucent color with two coats. As you can see, it looks like a different shade on my tips, almost like a sort of french manicure.
This collection is available now at ULTA and nail salons where OPI is sold.
