Nail Junkie | OPI " Texas Collection " | Swatches + Review

Well I finally got around to swatching OPI's entire Texas Collection. It's a pretty large collection but of course it had to be to coincide perfectly with the state of Texas!  The collection features warm tones from honey and tangerine to dazzling hues of violet and sky blue. Check out each color below :o) 

Y'all Come Back Ya Hear?
This Texas tangerine will be waitin’ for ya!

Big Hair...Big Nails
A rosy pageant peach.

Guy Meets Gal-veston
An “engaging” coastal coral.

Austin-tatious Turquoise
Cowgirls love this bodacious blue-green.

It's Totally Fort Worth It
A shimmery lavender grey that’s so worthy of you.

I Vant to Be A-Lone Star
You won’t want to share this starry Texas-sky blue.

Do You Think I'm Tex-y?
A “berry” sexy bloom of Dallas dahlia.

Houston We Have a Purple
A galactic red-violet that’s ready to “rocket roll”!

Too Hot Pink to Hold 'Em
A red-hot pink-red that deals a winning hand.

Don't Mess with OPI
A lean, mean, kick-grass forest green.

Suzi Loves Cowboys
But she loves this campfire chocolate shade s’more!

San Tan-tonio
A “honey” of a ten-gallon tan!

Glow: I really love the brights in this collection, very ideal for spring/summer. I'm also a big fan of neutrals so there's no surprise that "San Tan-tonio" is actually my favorite color out of all of them!

Glare: Although it's a part of OPI's new sorbet formula, I can't say that I was head over heels for the transparency in some of the colors. It's just a peeve of mine, something about being able to see my nails through my polish isn't exactly what I look for in a polish.

Would I Recommend It? I would, of course there are some colors I prefer over others but this is a pretty nice collection.

Overall Glam: With such a large collection, I honestly would've loved to have seen a broader range of colors. While the pinks & corals are really pretty, they don't really stand out from one another. A couple of the shades look too much alike, like 3-4 variations of the same color. Overall it's a nice selection but I would've loved to have seen a few less pinks.

The Texas Collection by OPI is currently available at select retailers including ULTA for about $8.50 a bottle. To find retailers near you or to learn more please visit www.opi.com .
