OPI - Y'all Come Back Ya Hear?

This amazingly bright orange jelly came out with the Texas collection (2011). The colour is perfect for summer. It's as I said, really, really bright, and has the amazing shine and jelly-look that you can expect from the jellies that came out with this collection. Love it!

My thoughts on the OPI "sorbet" (aka jelly) formula:

The jellies which came out with the OPI Texas collection are very, very sheer, but other than that, they apply like a dream. They are buildable, but getting them completely opaque would take many, many coats. You can get away with three coats, but the true magic doesn't happen until the fourth, or even the fifth coat. I usually use four coats, and I get the most amazing jelly finish I've ever seen. No patchiness, just gorgeous shine and everything looks completely even, like a professional manicure.

As far as weartime goes, those jelly polishes wear much better than the average cream formula. I don't get any chipping until the sixth day, and tip wear is minimal. Removing the jelly polishes is relatively easy, but if you use a top coat (which I don't find necessary) you might find it a bit more difficult.

Really, there is only one real flaw to those polishes - they are completely addicting!

Isn't this pretty? Click on the picture to enlarge it, and it will look even more gorgeous!

Product (65%) - 9.5/10 (would have been a straight 10 if it hadn't been so sheer)

Value (10%) - 8/10
Would I repurchase? (15%) - 10/10
Packaging (10%) - 8/10

Overall - 9.5/10

P.S. No, it's not just you :) This text is almost exactly the same as in my review about OPI's Do You Think I'm Tex-y? because the formula is the same. I will also post pictures of the other jellies I bought, with the same text.


  1. Orange is such a fun summery color, and in jelly form nonetheless!
