Don't Mess With Texas...... the OPI collection


 {I happened to have a Don't Mess with Texas shirt laying around that a friend bought me}
OPI has come out with collections such as France, Hong Kong, Swiss...etc. Well OPI has come "home" to the USA and has created a timeless Texas Collection. The colors are iconic to images of an American summer.


From the company that brought revolutionary nail textures such as suede, matte and Black Shatter OPI has come out with a new special finish which has a semi-transparent sorbet style. This revolutionary Sorbet Style is featured first in the Texas Collection by OPI which is their Spring/Summer 2011 line. The colors are the perfect lacquers to give fingers and toes a lightly glossed appearance.

The Sorbet lacquers were hard to take a picture of because of their glossed appearance. Below you'll find a color wheel that features all of the sorbet shades. This is exactly how they appear. So when picking out a color go by my wheel more than my nail swatches.
 
{from left to right: Y'all Come Back Ya Hear?, Guy Meets Gal-veston, Big Hair...Big Nails, Too Hot Pink to Hold 'Em, Do You Think I'm Tex-y? and Houston We Have a Purple.} 
{Ya'll Come Back Ya Hear?}
Y'all Come Back Ya Hear? is a a tangerine creamsicle shade that is perfect for the spring orange, peach and tangerine trend.
 {Guy Meets Gal-veston}
Guy Meets Gal-veston is a watermelon pink and is one of my favorites.

 {Big Hair...Big Nails}
Big Hair...Big Nails is a rosy peach shade. 
{Too Hot Pink to Hold 'Em}
Too Hot Pink to Hold 'Em is a cherry pink and looks gorgeous against a warm skintone.

 {Do You Think I'm Tex-y?}
Do You Think I'm Tex-y? is a beautiful raspberry shade. Definitely will get you into wishing summer was here.

 {Houston We Have a Purple}
Houston We Have a Purple is red-violet shade. As soon as I saw it I immediately thought of a juicy plum.

 Below is the rest of the Texas Collection by OPI. On the color wheel is exactly how the colors appear.
 {from left to right: I'm Totally Fort Worth It, I Vant to Be A-Lone Star, Austin-tatious Turquoise, Don't Mess with OPI, Suzi Loves Cowboys and San Tan-tonio}

{I'm Totally Fort Worth It}
I'm Totally Fort Worth It is a shimmery gray lavender. 

{I Vant to Be A-Lone Star}
I Vant to Be A-Lone Star is a sky blue.

 {Austin-tatious Turquoise}
Austin-tatious Turquoise is mermaid blue green shade.
{Don't Mess with OPI}
Don't Mess with OPI is a foresty grass green. Here it is in the sun you get a lighter green however in the house under regular light you get more of a forest grass green as seen in the color wheel above.
  
{Suzi Loves Cowboys}
Suzi Loves Cowboys is a beautiful chocolate brown. Definitely reminds me of campfire s'mores.

 {San Tan-tonio}
San Tan-tonio is a sandy honey color wear this on your toes and it'll definitely blend in with the sand.
 Do you like any of these colors?
