OPI Do You Think I'm Tex-y?

My final color in the Texas/Deep In The Heart of Color Collection - OPI's Summer 2011 series is Do You Think I'm Tex-y?  I was talking to a former nail tech the other day who said that she absolutely loves OPI's bottle names.  I do think that consistently, they are the most creative and I do like the running theme of Suzi having a color named in there.  This last sorbet/jelly polish is supposed to be more of a berry from their press release but again doesn't look much like it's promo picture.


I used a base of OPI Natural Nail, 3 coats of polish and a top of OPI Top Coat.


I really do hesitate on if this is a red or a purple.  I feel like it leans more red but then I can see the whole berry purple thing in there too?  This color seems more opaque than some of the others but it's still not like a creme.


In the shade it still holds it own and no VNL but I'm still not convinced.  The whole jelly/sorbet thing is so weird to me and as much as I thought I liked them - I don't.  I prefer opaque colors as I've been reading most of y'all do too.


Even indoors with the flash, this color just seems to glow and not get lost in the shuffle.  I definitely think it's going to have to be played with some more, and again you can always add some crackle when the sheerness gets to you.  I am glad to be done with this collection though.  As excited as I was to see my home state covered in nail polish, I didn't enjoy all the colors as much as I hoped.  I'd still buy for novelty sake but I don't know how often these colors will be reused in my stash.

  2. I prefer cremes to jellies too BUT I think this one would make a really pretty jelly sandwich with some glitter :)
