I bought this knowing it was translucent, and it certainly is. If you're expecting a creme, you'll be disappointed. This is from OPI's 2011 "Texas" collection, and it's what OPI are calling a "sorbet" (their name for a translucent jelly formula), and it's actually designed and intended to be sheer-to-translucent.
Formula is thin (not surprising, given how sheer this is), and can be difficult to manage. One coat gives some colour coverage, though it is very sheer, and with this shade, it's kinda weird looking, to be honest. A second coat deepens the colour and increases the opacity a bit, though the nail line is still visible. I prefer the look of this polish with three coats, which gives you just about the maximum colour and opacity that you're likely to get, though even that is not fully opaque. The surface is extraordinarily shiny and smooth, just amazing gloss.
This particular colour is a somewhat bright, tangerine orange, and while I like it, it's probably my least favourite of the colours in this collection. It does remind me of orange lollipops, but the depth of colour is not as rich or impressive as some of the other "sorbet" polishes by OPI.
This polish is absolutely perfect for doing a glitter jelly sandwich, and it's brilliant for a syrup manicure, due to the translucent quality of the polish.
So, basically, if you want an opaque polish, this is not going to be a polish you like or want. If, on the other hand, you love the look of a translucent jelly and you like orange, you'll probably enjoy this one.
