I am decidedly underwhelmed by OPI’s Spring 2011 Texas collection. Generally, before any given OPI collection comes out I have at least 2 or 3 polishes that I can’t wait to get my hands on. But with this collection I saw it twice in the store before I picked up Big Hair…Big Nails. Katie kept raving about Too Hot Pink To Hold ‘Em, and like her I wanted to try this sorbet finish OPI kept going on about.
OPI describes Big Hair…Big Nails as a rosy pageant peach. Peach isn’t how I would describe it, on me it is a pink leaning coral. I really love the color. And the formula is great. Because it’s a jelly, I did need three coats to get an (almost) opaque color.
There is nothing new or revolutionary about these “sorbet” finishes. They’re just jelly finishes. But, OPI really did a great job with these jelly’s, though I expected nothing less from the company that made Dating a Royal.
