OPI: Do You Think I'm Tex-y? (Texas Collection)

Hi everyone! I hope you're having a great week. Today I have another polish from the Texas collection to share with you. Sorry these are taking so long. I am hoping to catch up on photos this weekend, so we'll see how it goes. I am also getting a new laptop (should come today) so I will be able to do things faster! My current laptop is old!

This is  Do You Think I'm Tex-y? what a cute name!!! OPI describes this as "a "berry" sexy bloom of Dallas Dahlia" This is one of OPI's new "sorbet" finishes which OPI consders semi-transparent. These are similar to jelly finishes. They're high shine but pretty sheer and squishy looking.  I have  love/hate relationship with this finish. I think it looks best on short nails. When you have longer nails the white tip peeks through and causes your nails to look dirty no matter how clean they are.  I was able to minimize this effect with Do You Think I'm Tex-y  by applying 3 coats, however, you'll see in an upcoming review I was not able to do that with all the sorbets.

This particular color is really pretty for summer. I think it'd look great with a tan. Like I said above, I do think it's more suited for shorter nails because it's so sheer. If you can get past the sheer aspect the high shine is really pretty!

Have you tried any of the sorbet colors? What do you think of them? 

Don't be shy in the comments. I had a tremendous response to my "Do you blog" post so it'd be nice to see some of you responders in the comments sometimes!
