Hey! Y'all Come Back Ya Hear? (YCBYH) is a wonderfully fiery, jellyish orange. The name is pretty terrible but I will be back for the color (awesomeness!) OPI is now a 4-freefer (free of DBP, toluene, formaldehyde resin and camphor). YCBYH was one of six "sorbet" colors in the OPI Texas 2011 Collection which are basically jelly polishes. The best way I can describe jelly polish is like a see-through dice or lucite. I was looking for an nice orange, not a orangey red which I seem to run across a lot. Well thank you OPI for making this orange goodness. An orange jelly at that! As you know, jelly polishes can be a love/hate thing especially if you are OCD about polish being completely opaque. As you see in the pics, there is no smile line or visible nail line. I just love how vivid the jelly finish makes the color. The application is excellent, no issues at all. I applied four coats but I probably could have avoided all of those coats by applying a white base coat. YCBYH is definitely on my short list of best jelly polishes along with Do You Think I'm Tex-y and NARS Zulu. Give me a purple jelly and I'll be in heaven LOL!

Hey peachies! You're S-Teal the One (YSTO) is from the Target exclusive Something about Spring 2011 collection. Nicole by OPI is a 3-freefer (free of DBP, toluene, and formaldehyde.) YSTO is a bluish, foily duochrome with a flash of fuchsia. It kinda reminds me of police lights (hey don't judge me:-). It definitely translate more blue than teal...however in the pic below it looks a smidge teal. The formula is a bit thin but not bad. Now here is the main issue I have with the application...the brush. The brush is super short, round at the tip and thick. They call it "The Perfect Stroke" brush. Um not so much...it really didn't spread the polish like it should have. Probably because of the thickness and shortness of the brush. Anywho, enough about the brush. The color is pretty, I just wished the flash of fuchsia was more noticable. The color is pretty though. Want this color? I believe it's still available at your local Target and retails for $7.

http://www.polishology.net/2011/01/opi-not-like-movies-vs-deborah-lippmann.html). Wicked Game is the perfect metallic for the spring and summer because of the softness the other colors in this quaduchrome like the purple and green bring to it. Gotta have Wicked Game? It retails for $16 at Nordstrom (http://www.nordstrom.com/).
