OPI Touring America

OPI Touring America
Fall 2011

Having just returned from a 13 hour road trip late Saturday night, I was ecstatic to find this collection waiting in a box in my foyer when I walked through the door.  OPI's Touring America takes us on a trip across our vast and exciting country.  It is filled with a wide variety of colors and a multitude of finishes, and I am just as excited seeing the colors on my nails as I was when I got the initial press release many months ago.

In this post, I have all of the shimmers and three of the cremes; later today I will post the rest of the collection (you can see it by clicking HERE!).  For each swatch, I used two coats.  The polishes dried quickly and all had a really nice shine.  Check out the swatches below and let me know what you think!

My Address is Hollywood

Beautiful light pink rose with gold shimmer.  A true old-Hollywood glamour.  I love everything about this polish - the color, the glitter, and the name.

Are We There Yet?

A peachy-pink loaded with golden shimmer.  Fun, and perfect for these last few months of summer (or a nice road trip to California!)

I Eat Mainely Lobster

Another favorite in this collection, I Eat Mainely Lobster is a fabulous bright, orangey pink (a little reminiscent of OPI My Chihuahua Bites).  It is filled with pretty, teensy shimmer like My Address is HollywoodAre We There Yet?, and Color to Diner For.

Color to Diner For

This name fits this polish perfectly.  Color to Diner For is I'm Not Really A Waitress' cousin.  Dark red with tons of shimmer and a hint of copper and oh-so pretty.  I can just see a waitress wearing this pretty shade at a roadside burger joint.

French Quarter For Your Thoughts

French Quarter For Your Thoughts is a pretty light gray creme.

Suzi Takes the Wheel

This one is very similar to French Quarter, except it has a hint of green, which didn't show up too well in pictures.  If I were to choose between the two, I prefer French Quarter.

Uh-Oh Roll Down the Window

Honestly, I hate the name (is this supposed to be puke-colored?), but I love the color.  This is a great army green creme that is fabulous for fall and warm up my fair-weather hands.

OPI's Touring America Collection is available at Sephora, Ulta, and most nail salons.  Learn more at
