OPI Texas Collection Sorbet Swatches!

Good Morning! Today I have for you guys the 2nd half of the Texas Collection. This is the half I was most looking forward to, the Sorbet finishes! They did not disappoint me! I'm gonna need OPI to make these in like every color possible, please!

I love the formula on these polishes in this post, they were consistently awesome! I love this sorbet finish, they dry fast, super shiny and look squishy...it doesn't get much better than that! They are sheer, but that's the point. You can build them up, or wear "underwear" if you don't like sheer. I used a milky ridge filling base coat and after 3 coats all of these were pretty opaque!


First up is Houston We Have A Purple, it pulls more reddish than purple but I still love it!


Do You Think I'm Tex-y is bright berry!


Guy Meet Gal-veston is a pinkish coral


Too Hot Pink To Hold 'Em is a red/pink. I was hoping this would be a little more bright and screaming PINK but I'm loving it either way.


Y'all Come Back Ya Hear? is Orange, ahh I love it. This is the one I was most looking forward to and it did not disappoint me!


Last up is Big Hair...Big Nails which is a reddish coral.


Overall I really love all of these, I don't normally go for these kinds of shades (other than the orange) but the sorbet finish is enough to make me want/need them all. I wish there was a bit more variety in the shades that OPI has given us so far,  but it seems like more sorbet's are in our future so I look forward to seeing what they give us next!

Did you guys pick any of these up? What did you think of them?

*the polishes in this post were sent to me for review*

  1. I love these, at first I listened to everyone else being disappointed with them, then I bought Too Hot Pink to Hold 'Em, and I love them now, I want all the sorbet colours!

  2. What exactly does Sorbet finish mean? They are lovely, but very similar in color. I like Houston We Have a Purple and Too Hot Pink To Hold 'Em.

    This is OPI's official description of what a Sorbet finish is:

    “Unlike thicker creams or light sheers, these twelve shades are slightly translucent – similar to the look of icy, water-based sorbet!”

    My description: Like a traditional jelly finish polish :)

  6. Thank you Jen! I always kinda wondered what you meant about the jelly polishes too! I may have to go buy one of these Sorbets now. Even though I just bought 4 polishes on Friday...

  12. I have Do you think I'm Tex-y, I love the colour but I really hate the sheerness. It wasn't opaque as yours with 3 coats, and on long nails it was not so pretty because of the visible tips :(

    Anyway, they are pretty on you, and now I have shorter nails I think I'll give it another try. I must admit that the formula was good and soooo shiny :p

  13. These are so pretty. Don't know if I'll buy any of them. I may be tempted!

  14. Hey Jen! I have Guy Meets Gal Veston and it looks terrible on me, but great on you! All of these, but especially Guy Meets Gal Veston, remind me of nice, juicy, lipgloss! All of these shades make me want summer!

  15. I am so anxious for these!
    I have ordered them as soon as they had become available on TD and the package still hasn't arrived...ugh!

    They look lovely on you!

  18. I love these polishes. I'm a big fan of jelly finishes it makes a change from all the cremes that have been around for the last few years.

  19. First, I got Big Hair, Big Nails and loved it so much that I got Guy Meets Gal-veston next, and I just got Do You Think I'm Tex-y? I'm thinking about also getting Too Hot to Hold 'Em. These are so easy to apply, they dry super fast - no waiting ten minutes between coats, and they're super glossy without a topcoat. I have been wearing Guy Meets Gal-veston for a week now with no chipping - only minor edge wear. I just added two more coats, and it looks as good as new. My favorite nail polish ever!

  20. Did anyone else find Houston we have a Purple really really sheer? I did 7 coats before it even started to look normal, so instead I put some of my old Miami Beet into it and called it a day.

  21. Houston We Have A Purple is meant to be sheer, it's one of their "sorbet" polishes.

  22. hi i want to ask bout Too Hot Pink To Hold 'Em, is it kind of sheer polish too? i love the colour but i don't really like sheer type. thx!
