manicure madness.

I'm way tardy to the party with this post, but I love this stuff so much, I couldn't resist writing. I am a self-professed polish queen. My weekly manicure is one of the much-anticipated highlights of my week... perched and relaxed after a long day while my talons are shaped, soaked, polished to perfection. Bliss, I tell ya. OPI is, IMHO, the best of the best (Essie too!). OPI debuts a new collection a few times a year, and one of their most recent lines is a little homage to my home sweet home.

The Texas collection includes a dozen super-flattering shades that are just in time for summer! I was spoiled fortunate enough to be surprised with 3 little bottles for valentines from my mister, and one from my bosslady. What can I say--these people know me!

[I have Big Hair, Big Nail, Houston, We Have a Purple, Do You Think I'm Tex-y?, & Y'all, Come Back Ya Hear? and can happily report that I am crazy about each of them--super wearable, bold and rich hues.]

Have you tried any of the Texas shades?? What did you think?

What's your favorite summer shade? (ahem, other than Cajun Shrimp... I've heard that one before. Once or twice.)

[p.s. up next from OPI, you ask? Pirates of the Caribbean line!! just in time for the 4th movie!!]


  1. I love all the colors but to me the polish is awful!! It is very runny and has a very thin texture. I actually got Guy Meets Gal-Veston on my toes last and she put 3 coats and it still isn't very thick.I also have Big Hair Big Nails, You think Im Tex-y, and San Tan-Tonio. Now what do I do with them since I was so disappointed?

    A few of my favorite summer colors are : Strawberry Margarita, Paint My Moji-toes Red, Your a Pisa Work. There are so many more, I just love OPI!

  2. Hailey--I noticed one of mine is really watery too--not sure why! I think there must have been different batches or something... it's a huge bummer all yours are that way! :(

    Essie's Carousel Coral and Geranium are awesome too! Try those--you won't be disappointed! :)

  3. I love Guy Meets Galveston! I also love Not So Bora Bora-ing Pink.

  4. I'm nail polished obsessed! And I haven't gotten any of the Texas Colors yet.. but I love them ALL! Idk how I could ever decide!

  5. I have San Tan-tonio, and I love it. I think I'll wear it more in the fall though, or perhaps once I have a tan this summer. Right now I look super pale when I wear it.


leave me some feedback. be honest! and play nice.
