2 February 2011 OPI officially launched a new Spring/Summer collection of nail polishes, named after the state of Texas and based on the American way of life:
Texas provided the inspiration for this season, with bright colors and classic neutrals that draw from the American spirit. Taking cues from the state’s naturally beautiful backdrop, the Texas Collection features warm tones from honey and tangerine to dazzling hues of violet and sky blue.
Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director
The OPI Texas collection offers 12 colorful shining shades that are must haves for urban cowgirls:
Don’t Mess With OPI NL T11
Suzi Loves Cowboys NL T12
San Tan-tonio NL T13
Austin-Tatious Turquoise NL T14
It’s Totally Fort-Worth It NL T15
I Vant To Be A-Lone Star NL T16 swatch
Do You Think I’m Tex-y? NL T17
Houston We Have A Purple NL T18
Too Hot Pink To Hold ‘Em NL T19
Y’all Come Back Ya Hear? NL T20

Guy Meets Gal-veston NL T22
6 of the 12 colors including Houston We Have a Purple, Guy Meets Gal-veston, Big Hair… Big Nails, Too Hot Pink to Hold ‘Em, Do You Think I’m Tex-y? and Ya’ll Come Back Ya Hear? have a semi-transparent finish that is called “sorbet”. These OPI Texas polishes are announced to give nails a lightly glossed appearance.
These sorbet-style formulas for nails will be in full swing by 2012. Unlike thicker creams or light sheers, these shades are slightly translucent – similar to the look of icy, water-based sorbet!
