OPI Do You Think I’m Tex y nail varnish

OPI Do You Think I’m Tex y nail varnish

I was very excited to try this polish as it’s a new finish called ‘sorbet’. OPI brought this out in the Texas Collection last year and I have been so intrigued. Sorbets are slightly sheer polishes that dry to a really high shine. This is a sumptuous berry-fuschia that is so flattering.

This took 4 coats to achieve this opacity and this is no top coat so you can see just how beautifully shiny it is. The VNL does bother me, but that’s probably more noticeable because my nails are so long, with shorter nails you probably wouldn’t even see it.

If you want to see some other polishes from the OPI Texas collection, I’ve reviewed Do You Think I’m Tex-y HERE, It’s Totally Fort Worth It HERE, and Y’All Come Back Ya Hear?’ HERE.

I can’t find this polish for sale online anymore, but you can see all of the beautiful OPI nail varnish ranges HERE.

I had never heard of Kiko polish before but I went shopping with some lovely nail ladies I met through Twitter and they kindly introduced me. They were all in the sale at £1.50 as well so I bought a few – well, it’d be rude not to really!

This is the first I’m swatching: a beautiful, bright green creme. This is two coats and a layer of Seche Vite. I love green polish so much and this one is such a great shade, I am thrilled to find it!

This is a super pretty ivory, pearl-finish polish with a gold glow. This needed 3 fairly thick coats to get rid of the visible nail line, and was then topped with a layer of Seche Vite. It’s not really my kind of polish as I prefer bright colours and I’m not a fan of pearl finishes typically… but it’s very pretty and I think it would look lovely on shorter nails. Maybe the pearl effect coupled with my long nails makes it look a bit 80s?

Inglot nail varnishes were a total surprise to me: I’d never heard of them before but they are really high quality, have some amazing colours and aren’t that expensive. As you can see from the swatches, Inglot 987 nail varnish is a vibrant turquoise creme polish that is a lovely summer colour.

I didn’t know what to expect from Barry M’s foray into jelly polishes. It wasn’t sheer and squidgy (you know what I mean!) like true jelly polishes, and it was actually a bit of a nightmare to apply – steaky, draggy and gloopy. But the final result is lovely and so shiny – with no top coat. Yes, you heard me right – I didn’t use Seche Vite on a manicure. I feel a bit faint.
