On Wednesdays, We Wear Pink

Well...at least us nail bloggers do!  A couple weeks ago, the nail blogging community started "On Wednesdays, We Wear Pink" a la Mean Girls.  So, this is my first entry (the day is full of firsts) to Pink Wednesdays.


Not that I'd consider myself a mean girl by any means, it's fun to play along every now and then, right?  Here we go...

This, my dears, is OPI Do You Think I'm Tex-y.  Ugh.  I don't get the whole "cute" name thing with OPI.  I mean, I get it.  I just don't like it.  Anyway...this is from their Texas collection that was released in February and it's one of the "sorbet" finishes (read: jelly).  Yes, I know, it's a little different from the usual jelly finishes, but I don't really care know/can't really tell the difference.

I miss my long nails!  This mani was super bright raspberry color that wasn't so bright as to be obnoxious.  Does that make sense?  And it was super shiny, too.  This pic was taken indoors with flash.

See how shiny that is?  Seriously.  If it hadn't been for the plaid design I did on my ring finger, I probably wouldn't have used a top coat.  This was indoors without flash.

OK.  I know this pic is basically about the same as the one just above it, but look at the insane shininess!

Direct sun.  I love this color.  I've picked this one up and put it back in to its home more than a few times.  I didn't buy in to the hype that surrounded the release of OPI's sorbets, but I did pick up this color because it was so pretty in the bottle - it did not disappoint. 

As a side note...Zoya's annual Earth Day polish exchange started today!  So, between now and April 27th, you can exchange your old, ugly polish for new, gorgeous Zoya polish.  Check out the Zoya blog for more details

Mean Girls is one of my most favorite movies - it seriously never gets old!

That is a really nice color and the SHINE! I can see why you wanted to take so many pictures, so so pretty!

You don't like the corny names? Ah, shucks. However, this is still a winner. And I like the plaid accent.

Oooh, shinies! Seriously.Gorgeous.on.you!!! ! The plaid is super-cute, too! I didn't think I liked any of the colors in the Texas collection, but you're making me re-think that idea... darnit! >:/
