OPI: Texas Swatches

I never really had much interest in the Texas collection. I finally saw the collection in person and decided I really wanted to try 3 of the colors. This collection also featured OPI's new "sorbet finish". 
I Vant To Be A-Lone Star, Too Hot Pink To Hold 'Em, and Do You Think I'm Tex-y?
Ugh. Can we talk about these names? Really, OPI? These names are not cute or clever to me. I think they're so cheesy. Every time I read them I want to roll my eyes.

This is 3 coats of I Vant To Be A-Lone Star.

I Vant To Be A-Lone Star is a grey blue with silver shimmer. It reminds me of Zoya Marley but blue.

This polish is gorgeous. If I could only have one polish from the Texas collection it would be this one.

I believe some people had trouble with the application of this one but I didn't. After 3 coats it was smooth like butter.

This is 2 coats of Too Hot Pink To Hold 'Em.

Too Hot Pink To Hold 'Em is a cherry, hot pink sorbet polish. I am not a fan of the sorbet finish. Too much visible nail line.

I think it looks like melted cough drops on my nails. Ew.

I will admit, it is VERY shiny!

This is 3 coats of Do You Think I'm Tex-y?

Do You Think I'm Tex-y? is a magenta sorbet polish. There really isn't a lot of difference in color between Too Hot Pink To Hold 'Em and this one.

I just can't get into these polishes at all.

This is more melted jolly rancher.

I'm disapointed that I didn't like the sorbets more but I wasn't interested when I first heard about them anyway. I love I Vant To Be A-Lone Star and very happy that it turned out to be a gorgeous polish.
How do you guys feel about the sorbet finishes?


  1. I am in different about the polish but your nails look great!

    You think you would like them better with undies?

  2. I Vant to be Alone is the only one I am interested in also. I also don'tlike the sorbet finish, way too thin and liquid looking. Pretty colors though!

  3. I skipped this line, nothing screamed out to me. I don't care for the VNL look, but I was thinking about the chocolate one.

  4. They look great!!! I prefer the first one!!!

  5. I wasn't really interested in the collection until I heard 1/2 of them are jellies or sorbet what OPI is calling them. I'm only missing I Vant To Be A-Lone Star and I hope to pick it up after work. I can't wait to swatch these :)

  6. I think it's just OPI trying to profit in on an old technology- jelly. Come on OPI, they're one of the better brands around but they don't seem to bother creating something unique of their own. Shatter polishes were around way before the Katy Perry collection.

  7. I like your nails. The colours are ok nothing special(maybe because i prefer glitter and shimmer):)

  8. OMG, such cute colors but wierd names...i really love your blog can you check out mine?

  9. Loodie- I was wondering that myself and I think yes, it would be A LOT better!

    Cheryl- I have to agree to disagree. I think OPI is a top brand for a reason- they make some great stuff! Yes, crackle polish was around long before Depend, OPI, Berry M, or China Glaze. But I think these brands helped it make a comeback. I don't love everything that OPI puts out but I think they have a lot of things in their collections that hold a special place in my helmer.

    Thanks ladies!

  10. i lovee the first one so much yeah ure right the names are cheesy! gosh i saw the ad and what the model was wearing wwas ugly! i'm from Texas and i felt insulted every time i came across it in a magazine lol
