O.P.I Do you Think I'm Tex-y?

Yes I think you're very "Tex-y" but...

  Ya'll know how I feel lol... Say hello to the only color in the Texas Collection that won my affections. This is a very pretty and flattering shade. Nothing uber special but still easy on the eyes and it gives me hope for the future of O.P.I jellies. I say back to the drawing table and try again. This is such a cool finish I just know they can do much cooler things with it!
  Do you think I'm Tex-y? is a darker Berry Pink "sorbet" finish polish. The color itself is sooo pretty when in Sunlight but in most light it just looks like a shade of Red. The formula on this polish was actually very easy to work with but very sheer. VNL haters (I'm indifferent toward it) everywhere will cringe at this half of the collection. For this mani I stopped at Three coats because the color was accurate and even, there is no covering the VNL. Also, I could not get this to wrap around the tips to save my life! 
  The finish itself looks pretty neat on the nail bed, kind of like a lip stain but for your nails. True jelly. It is also sooooo glossy! I just wish they had taken their time to release better colors in this finish instead of rushing to show us what they came up with. Essentially it just a jelly finish polish, which is great. Like I said props to O.P.I for trying something new finish- wise.
   I love jelly- finishes. I love the high gloss and the squishy wet look they give nails. Hopefully they perfect it and give us awesome Summer jellies in a better color range. How great would a jelly Summer collection be (Influenced by tropical waters and it's colorful inhabitants perhaps)?! Once I added the Black tips I wasn't too mad at the mani because it solved the distracting VNL issue. Out of 12 colors in the collection, this was the only one that even remotely spoke to me and 80% of my decision to buy this was influenced by wanting to see what this "new" finish looked like.
