OPI Austin-tatious Turquoise and OPI Simmer & Shimmer accent nail.

I love the OPI Texas Collection and the OPI Burlesque is one of my favorite all time OPI collections. Definitely top 5. Here's my notd  from these two collections.

OPI Texas Collection from Spring 2011 has some beautiful colors. Specifically the six jellies (sorbets). I love them! Austin-tatious Turquoise is a glass fleck teal color with a very subtle duochrome in pink. It's a nice color and the glass fleck finish is a favorite for me. This color on my skin tone though, isn't a good match imo. I really do better with warm colors. I have a bunch of blues/purple/greens. I don't know why I keep buying them. I did hold off with the recent Color Club Take Wing Collection for this spring and only got three of the six. I'll be showing those later. Anyway, back to this mani. I used OPI Simmer & Shimmer, from the Holiday 2010 The Burlesque Collection as the accent nail. The Burlesque Collection is freakin' awesome. I love every single color. The application is perfect on both, the colors are gorgeous and the wear is great. I will wear them in spite of the lobster hands I get ;)
On a side note: As I was doing this mani it occurred to me this looks like $OPI Who Let The Dorks out AND Nicole by OPI Lotus Iceberg. I did a comparison and they're all identical. (Why didn't I take pics?) So, I guess I can trade or sell two of these :/
