I have to admit Austin-tatious Turquoise was the colour I was most excited about from this range. It's a mermaid turquoise shade packed with shimmer, but unfortunately is extremely sheer, this was 4 coats and I still wouldn't call the coverage opaque. It is a beautiful colour though, depending on the angle, this polish flashes blue and green and the shimmer really makes it sparkle. I imagine this colour would look quite lovely layered over a blue creme polish, will have to try that out soon :D
Here's a comparison swatch of Austin-tatious Turquoise alongside some other turquoise polishes, I've not found an exact dupe, but these shades are definitely similar if you love the turquoise effect.

I Vant to Be A-Lone Star
I Vant to Be A-Lone Star has swiftly become my favourite shade from this collection, it's a very light pearly grey/blue shade with a subtle shimmer effect when you look closely, the effect is quite similar but a little more obvious than China Glaze Sea Spray from the Anchors Away Collection:
China Glaze Sea Spray
Sea Spray is a little darker than I Vant to Be A-Lone Star, but they both have that awesome subtle shimmer, gorgeous colours! I Vant to Be A-Lone Star was opaque in 2 coats, which actually surprised me, I was expecting this one to be sheer, so that's a definite plus :D
Do You Think I’m Tex-y
It's Totally Fort Worth It
Another Sheer shade *sigh* from the Texas Collection. It's Totally Fort Worth It is a shimmery silver/grey shade, on a close inspection you will see gorgeous pink shimmer in this polish, which does give it a more interesting dimension, however its sheerness means this polish will be better suited to layering, this was 3 coats. It's Totally Fort Worth It reminds me a little of a Zoya polish: Laney:
The main reason I picked San-Tan-Tonio is the fact that I don't own any colour like it and it's one of the few cremes in the collection. It's a warm caramel shade, and reminds me of that suede material you'd see on cowboy clothes, would probably look quite funky matte. It's too dark to be considered a nude, but it's definitely a great colour for everyday or if you generally prefer an understated look. This was opaque at 2 coats, with a glossy finish. It was pretty easy to apply, however I do find it slightly tricky to apply polish with OPI's pro wide brush, especially on my little finger nail, I think the brush must be designed for people with wider nail beds than me :)
On the whole this collection is still a little on the disappointing side for me, yes there are a few awesome shades I will definitely be wearing a lot, I'm just a little sad that so many are so sheer, and also the fact that a lot of the "sorbet" shades are very similar in colour, it would have been nice to have some funky different bright colour shades with this effect, I expect to see more of them popping up in summer collections. So what do you think of the "Sorbet Finish" will you be wearing it this spring?
