Got Myself into a Jam-Balaya is a peach crelly. Opaque in 2 coats.

Overall: The formula and application was great, and the fact that most of these colors are or could be one coaters (the ones that aren’t are gorgeous and worth the extra coats) makes this collection worth having.

Now for some nail art looks I created using this collection:

OPI New Orleans Collection -004 OPI New Orleans Collection -005

You’ll remember this look I posted on my Instagram for Valentine’s day….I started with a base of Let me Bayou a Drink, then used the waterspotting technique with Spare me a French Quarter and She’s a Bad Muffuletta!. To finish the look I stamped it with BM H17 and H18 using B Polished Midnight in Death Valley.

OPI New Orleans Collection -006For this look I created a stamping decal with BM402 using B Polished Midnight in Death Valley and filled in with Rich Girls &  Po-Boys, I Manicure for Beads, Suzi Nails New Orleans, I’m Sooo Swamped!, and Crawfishin’ for a Compliment.

OPI New Orleans Collection -007For this mani I started with a base of Take a Right on Bourbon and used the watercolor technique with Show us your Tips, Got Myself into a Jam-Balaya, and Humidi-Tea. Then I stamped it with images from BMXL174 using B Polished Midnight in Death Valley.
