OPI: Houston We Have a Purple (Texas Collection)

Monday again! Why do weekends go by so fast? Oh well!

Today I have another OPI Texas Collection color to share.  This is Houston We Have a Purple. I think that name is adorable!!!  I am not sure I exactly see it as a purple; I guess I'd call it a pink toned magenta.  It's quite berry toned which I don't think looks good on my skintone.  It's one of OPI's new "sorbet" finishes.  

I needed 4 coats of this to achieve the opacity pictured... which wasn't too opaque. After 4 coats I still had the dreaded visible nail line (VNL).  I hate seeing the nail like, it looks like I have dirty nails even when they are pristine!  I think these sorbets look best on shorter nails, that's just my opinion of course, to each his own.  I also think these would make great pedicure colors. I love the high shine finishes. I am so torn on these new sorbets...

Please excuse the bottle in the photos, it's odd the P seems to have rubbed off or something.

What do you think of this one? Have you picked it, or any of the other sorbet polishes up yet?
