Touring America is OPI\’s Fall 2011 collection. Now before I get to my review and swatches of this collection I wanted to remind you of what the nail trends are for this fall.
When I first found out that OPI\’s Fall 2011 collection was called Touring America I was beyond excited. They come out with France, Swiss, Tokyo…etc collections and now it was finally an \”America\” collection. The collection contains twelve new nail shades which were inspired by American cities and the rich cultural heritage that distinguishes them.
Are We There Yet? is a soft peach melon hue with a dusting of shine. This color is a great transition into the fall. This year I have absolutely been in love with peach hues so it\’s no wonder I have fallen in love with this shade.
I Eat Mainely Lobster is a watermelon coral hue with a dusting of shine. This color is very pretty and would look nice in the fall or paired against tanned skin.
My Address is \”Hollywood\” is a light plum hue that also has the dusting of glitter shine. At first I wasn\’t a fan of this shade, but after having it on for an entire day I really fell in love with it.
Color to Diner for is a deep cherry shade, that is perfect for the more color reserved. This red is actually very pretty and sophisticated. However it is my least favorite color in the collection since I am not a red fan.
French Quarter for your Thoughts is a concrete gray with a touch of blue. This hue is definitely pretty and I am already considering pairing it with a raspberry colored dress.
Suzi Takes the Wheel is a murky gray with a touch of green and blue mixed together. This seems to be a pretty unique color and would definitely be gorgeous in the fall.
A-Taupe the Space Needle as you can see this is not quite a taupe Which I did find to be disappointing because I do love my taupe polishes. This hue is actually more of a western brown that is trying to be a taupe. I think based on the person wearing this shade it will look more brown or more taupe. While it may not be what I had hoped for I actually love this color. It won\’t replace \”You Don\’t Know Jacques\”, but it will be a nice change up color.
Uh-Oh Roll Down the Windows is gorgeous army olive green that will definitely be popular through the entire fall season.
Get in the Espresso Lane is a vampy dark brown that definitely reminds me of espresso beans.
Honk if you love OPI is a dark purple wine shade. My all time favorite dark purple is \”Linkin Park After Dark\” and I feel this hue is a shade or two darker than that one so I am definitely loving it.
I Brake for Manicures is a deep and dark plum shade with a touch or black. It is extremely pretty.
Road House Blues is a dark royal blue. Immediately I thought this hue would look gorgeous with some of the outfits that the Duchess of Cambridge has been spotted wearing. Think about this color paired with white or maybe a lighter royal blue and you have yourself a gorgeous sophisticated outfit!
My overall thoughts of the collection
This is the first fall collection that I have tried and I am absolutely loving it. The only color in this collection that I would not wear is \”Color to Diner for\” and that\’s because I am not a red fan at all. I loved the fact that this collection contained a couple colors that were not dark. While I absolutely love dark colors this collection allows you to transition into fall which I absolutely love!
What is your favorite color in this collection?
