You ask, we deliver. The Texas Collection, OPI’s new nail polish for spring and summer, features fresh, chic colors. OPI offers six reds / pinks / oranges alongside three unique creams and three shimmers. Something for the classicist and the cowgirl!
Let us know what you think of the new colors! Personally, I can’t get enough of Don’t Mess with OPI, Suzi Loves Chocolate and Austin-Tatious Turquoise. Any favorites from you guys?

You’ve heard of OPI’s Black Shatter polish, which is totally flying off the shelves. In response, China Glaze has released six new shatter-like crackle polishes with all of the creativity and quality of China Glaze behind them. Like the OPI Black Shatter polish, each Crackle Glaze color should be layered on a completely dry contrasting color for optimum effect. Swatches are below!
We tested out the Crackle Glaze top coats using a variety of base colors. The Crackle Glaze coats on the right are layered over China Glaze Recycle, pictured on the third chip from the top. The colors on the left are layered over China Glaze Empowerment (pink), Red Pearl (red) and Up All Night (navy). Note the dramatic effect achieved when the colors are contrasting. We had so much fun trying different combinations – you will too!

Check back tomorrow for custom Valentine’s Day swatches, to help you get a killer manicure ready for your big date!
