Southern Skies?

The other week I picked up OPI's Houston We Have a Purple at the Regis Salon for like 60% off. I wasn't thrilled with the swatches I'd seen from the Texas collection but I thought "I have no OPIs....I might as well get this one." I don't regret it but I'm not sure I'm 100% happy with this polish. It was quite opaque enough for my taste. Even at 3 coats there were still a couple spots that were patchy. But the color is more fun than I thought it would be.

Now if you haven't figured it out, I have a problem with leaving my nails at just one color. So this time I decided to go dark. I tipped the nails with Claire's Galaxy. Its a black jelly with tons of silver glitter. Lots of fun. These looks really messy because Galaxy stuck to the scotch tape I used. I would suggest doing one tip at a time so it doesn't have time to get tacky enough before pulling off the tape.

So this is  3 coats of OPI's Houston We Have a Purple with Claire's Galaxy tips.


  1. The Texas Sorbets should be layered over top of an opaque white polish. Try that next time!! :-)

  2. no white polish lol...i think i could have gotten it even with a fourth coat but i was lazy

  3. I just gave you a Kreativ Blogger Award! Go here to see....
