O.P.I Texas Spring/Summer 2011 Collection rides into town!

Posted by Lipglossiping On October - 25 - 2010

…geddit? rides? as in horses… as in cowboys? as in Tex… oh forget it.

Due for UK release in February, OPI will be introducing 12 new shades for their Spring/Summer collection which takes it’s inspiration from the U.S’ 2nd largest state.

Talking of O.P.I (which, I quite clearly will until I get bored)… does anyone know what O.P.I stands for?

No googling… no cheating… I DO actually know (‘cos I cheated) but that’s not the point.  Let’s pretend it could stand for ANYTHING!  In your mental little world, tell me what O.P.I would stand for?

For me and my bank account, it would have to be something like… Overall Purse Invaders.  I read one on Google that proferred “Ohmygod Pooh Inside” – I chuckled, though being over the age of 4… I probably shouldn’t have.

Um.  Where was I?  Oh yeah…  Texas Collection!

San Tan-tonio – The Perfect Honey Tan
Y’all Come Back Ya Hear? – Texan Tangerine
Guy Meets Gal-veston – “Engaging” Coral
Big Hair… Big Nails – Rosy Blush

I Vant To Be A-Lone Star – Starry Silver-Blue
It’s Totally Fort Worth It – Shimmering Lavender Grey
Austin-tatious Turquoise – Bodacious Blue Green
Don’t Mess With OPI – Lean, mean kick-grass Green

Too Hot Pink to Hold ‘Em – A hot pink winning hand
Do You Think I’m Tex-y – A ‘berry’ sexy shade
Houston We Have A Purple – Galactic violet
Suzi Loves Cowboys
– Rich campfire chocolate

I couldn’t make the preview but have already picked a personal favourite (or two) after having looked at Helen’s shots from the event.

Are there any shades in particular standing out amongst this little lot for you guys?

After seeing the swatch shot over at Just Nice Things – I’m lusting after It’s Totally Fort Worth It, but do have my reservations on how many coats I might need to apply to get the look I want from this jelly finish.

Other than that?  I’m not sure… nothing is filling me with overwhelming excitement, however… O.P.I (more than any other brand) have the ability to create slow burners for me.  I’m actually still indulging in the odd Swiss Collection bottle that I’ve now decided over a month after release that I simply cannot live without.

The O.P.I Texas Spring/Summer 2011 Nail Collection will be released in the UK in February, priced at £9.95 a bottle and avilable from LenaWhite.

    Noe of them really stick out for me but you gotta love the names. “Totally Fort Worth It” is definately my favourite on that front.
    OPI: Oh please inspire?

    Lately I have noticed that all the collections seem to be following the same format. A green, a blue, a nude, a couple of reds, etc. It would be good to see that format shaken up a bit.

  2. Laura says:

    They do seem a bit blah, the same reds, pinks, grey/brown and random green as usual, just like when MAC comes out with a new collections and it’s the same pinks, corals and purples all over again!
    I think OPI should stand for oh-so-lovely polish inventors!

  3. Laura says:

    Wow, I just looked up the real meaning and it’s really boring!!

  4. I have a new post on these going live tomorrow. All I am going to say is that they are not the boring old cremes we suspected…

  5. Caitlin G says:

    Ooohh… I like “Guy Meets Gal-veston”. It’ll be cute for the springtime… the others are just BLAH.

  6. Katy says:

    I think you’ve lost a year somewhere! I’m all into my dark shades at the moment but “Y’all Come Back Ya Hear?” is really grabbing me! I think “Don’t Mess With OPI” looks fairly similar to “Jade Is The New Black” which I’ve been considering for a while now.

  7. tass says:

    These looks a bit meh to me but I like their lolworthy names.

    “Suzi loves cowboys” sounds like a dodgy film….

  8. Trisha says:

    I have a friend who works for OPI and i have seen some of these colors in person and the pictures do not do them justice. “Its totally Fort Worth It” is one of the prettiest colors i have ever seen! Just wait till they come out! They are to die for!

  9. Moira says:

    After checking out this line in person..in all honesty..BORING!!! Those colors have been done every freaking year …they need to come up with something different..darn the Nicole by OPI Justin Bieber was more exciting than this collection! Not impressed at all!

  10. Ana says:

    i think opi stands for official polish institute! im going to go google it noww… hmm..

    regardless, i actually really like this collection!

    I need Houston We Have A Purple for the name alone.
