OPI Big Hair... Big Nails

Going back to the OPI Texas Collection, Big Hair...Big Nails is listed as a "rosy pageant peach."  Okay, I may not be a color expert, but this is no peach.  Or is it?  The odd thing about these jelly/sorbet colors is that it's not going to look like its bottle.


I started with a base coat of OPI Natural Nail, 3 coats of polish and a top coat of OPI Top Coat.  On my index and middle finger I put down a base of OPI Alpine Snow just to see if it would make a huge difference.


In the sun you can't really tell the difference between the polish alone and the polish over Alpine Snow.  I guess I picked the wrong shade to try it with, haha.  


In the shade you can just barely tell that there isn't a smile line on the first two fingers but there is on the last two fingers.


Here's where the difference comes in - indoors with the flash.  The nails (index and middle) with the Alpine Snow layer appear brighter (and a bit streaker) than the other two which are polish alone.  So is it worth it for a layer of white under?  Not for this color.


OPI is available at Professional Salons, including Beauty Brands, Beauty First, Chatters, Dillard’s, JCPenney, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, and Ulta, for $8.50 ($10.95 CAN) suggested retail for each Nail Lacquer. Please visit their website for details [official website].
