Be a CharmedGirl With OPI's Spring/Summer 2011 Texas Collection9:05 am
This post is dedicated to one of my very favourite people - Carmen, resident of Houston, who also happens to love nail polish.
OPI's Texas Collection is super fun and super wearable.
This new series includes 12 polishes with 6 "sorbet-style" lacquers for Spring/Summer 2011. Instead of the thick, creamy, opaque application that you're used to with OPI polishes, some of these Texans go on like jelly shoes!
Take Big Hair... Big Nails, for example. The first coat looks a lot like watermelon jello - a sheer summery pink that is incredibly flattering. It fits right in with the soft palettes of the season. But it transforms with the second coat, solid and super bright. Ooh, I could wear this every week. Light and delicate one week and then vivid and bold the next. Two looks in one!
Too Hot Pink to Hold 'Em is a little more berry, but still a perfect look for the season. For added edge, Houston We Have a Purple is deep, but by no means goth-y.
Austin-tacious Turquoise looks like oceans and mermaids: shimmery aqua that dances in the light. So pretty! And Suzi Loves Cowboys is milk chocolate in a bottle. It's light, so wear one coat or two, depending your mood and cater it to your daily look.
Green can be hard to pull off for some (me!), but I love the life in Don't Mess With OPI. It's smart-witted and preppy without being odd, like some greens out there. In fact, I might just wear this as much as the pinks.
I covered just 6 of the 12 shades, so be sure to check out the entire line. You'll be surprised and charmed by the Texas Collection by OPI.
I sure am.
