I couldn't resist this Texan

Yep, so originally I just knew I didn't any of the new OPI's from the Texas collection. Weeeellllll......Okay I fibbed. I walked into Ulta, and there was the whole collection. Out of curiosity, I went to check them out. Umm...why have I never been told how pretty It's Totally Fort-Worth It is?!?!? Seeing it in person, I was able to see the tiny amount of pink shimmer, and I knew I was buying it!

*edit* Sorry I don't know how I forgot this, but the base I used here is Sally Hansen Wet Cement

Then came 1 coat of It's Totally Fort-Worth It. can you see the hint of the pink shimmer?!!??!


  1. what's the name of the pretty Sally Hansen that you used?

  2. I did buy the sorbets and I was thinking about getting Fort-Worth now I will after seeing your picture. Is the sally hansen Wet Cement?

  3. It's Totally Fort Worth It is one of the three colors I bought from the Texas Collection and I love it. It actually matches the coverlet in my bedding (which is a gray with subtle lavender undertones... I wish it had the pink shimmer in it, though!). It also looks really pretty on its own. It's a little sheer, though, so it requires three coats but the color builds well.

  4. So pretty and tempting... feel like I must have one :)
    Not yet available here, but I must buy!

  5. Ooh, that's nice! Already on my wish list but you just confirmed it! Thanks for the post.

  6. Thanks girls!!!

    Alex & Rhonda, sorry, I edited my main post, I'm not sure how I forgot to mention my base, lol.

  7. I originally didn't want any from this collection either. Then I saw it at CosmoProf and fell in love with I Vant To Be A-Lone Star. It's GORGEOUS. I bought a couple of the jelly/sorbet ones and I could have done with out em.
    I Love this one on you. Is it only good for layering?

  8. Sally Hansen 'Wet Cement' is such a good base coat for a lot of colors! I use Wet Cement then OPI Tickle My France-y over it and it is love. Love your mani!

  9. Nice i like the colour very neutral good for work

  10. I thought for sure I would be able to pass the Texas collection up! But then of course seeing how different the Jelly/Sorbet colors were in the bottle...I grabbed Too Hot Pink To Hold 'Em, which is SO pretty! And I loved I Vant To Be A-Lone Star and Austin-Tatious Turquoise. I Vant To Be A-Lone Star is so amazing under the Black Shatter - it contrasts perfectly!
    Love this mani! I need to be strong and not go back to get It’s Totally Fort-Worth It lol I kept picking it up and putting it down...I feel like I have too many grays right now! And I want Wet Cement!! Erika, is Wet Cement pretty close to Zoya Dove? I don't know if you have that one, but I feel like I'd be getting too similar of a color if I bought Wet Cement! But I just love that name, and it is only like $3 right? haha
    Oh! And CVS had the Milani One Coat glitters buy one, get one 1/2 off!! I picked up Purple Gleam, Blue Flash, Red Sparkle, and Silver Dazzle!
    Oh Oh Oh! And Ulta has Pinata-Yada-Yada which is a dupe to DL Happy Birthday! (Since I haven't spotted Milani Gems, I was happy to get the Ulta brand!!)
    That was my shopping adventure yesterday lol sorry this is such a long post haha

  11. I do see the pink, nice. :)
    How does it look by its self? see through?

  12. Thanks everyone!!!

    Rachel, I'm going to say yes, but I haven't tried it on it's own. I'm afraid it might need about 4-5 coats, and I can't handle that, lol

    Crystal, nice haul!!!! I have yet t o see that Ulta DL dupe yet, hope you love it! Oh and from what I have heard Wet Cement is a close enough of a dupe, so you don't need both :)

    Some call me Rosa Sparks, that I don't know, I think I might be scared to see, lol. It is pretty sheer, so I would guess around 4-5 coats for complete coverage.

  13. LOL! I love the title of this blog post. XD

    OPI has the best collections, of all time. OF ALL TIME.

  14. Cammy, haha, well really I can resist any texan man, lol
