OPI Touring America
Earlier today I posted the first seven polishes in the OPI Touring America Collection for Fall 2011. These five are the darker shades in the collection, with a lovely navy blue, two browns, and fall-ready browns. Check out the other half of the collection HERE!
A-Taupe The Space Needle
A-Taupe The Space Needle is a warm chocolate brown creme. It applied really nicely.
Honk If You Love OPI
While this polish was thin and difficult to work with, it is a very pretty grape jelly. I used two coats, but there are spots that you can see through (like most jelly polishes).
Road House Blues
I LOVE this deep, rich navy blue. It was a little difficult to apply, since it was fairly thin, but the color is just gorgeous. I have only used it for this swatch, but it didn't stain during the five minutes I wore it.
Get in the Espresso Lane
If I were to choose one of the two browns in this collection, I would pick A-Taupe The Space Needle because I like the lighter brown better, but Get in the Espresso Lane is a rich, deep, beautiful brown polish. This one was also somewhat difficult to apply because of how thin it was (it bled outside of my nails).
I Brake For Manicures
I Brake For Manicures is a smoky, faded plum jelly. It applied better than the previous three, but was still a bit thin. I like the dusty shade; this is another great autumn shade.
Which part of the collection do you prefer? These darker shades or the brighter, shimmery ones posted here? Also, which one of these five is your favorite?
Did the Touring America Collection live up to your expectations?
