I was checking the O.P.I website to see if  I'm Sooo Swamped! is still available. I found the polish, as well as "I Manicure for Beads," were both part of the New Orleans Collection. I can already hear you saying, "well, duh Liz!" But, I haven't been keeping up with collection releases (side note: O.P.I's

Iceland Collection looks interesting). Despite the fact that I had purchased the polishes on two separate occasions, I now see the correlation of their names to New Orleans.

I'm Sooo Swamped! is a bright (yet muted) grassy-green creme. The lacquer just about applies itself; it's 99.5% opaque in one coat, with a creamy, glossy finish that last an entire week! I should have just  copied and pasted (and, I kinda did) what I wrote about I Manicure for Beads because the formula, application, finish and wear are identical.

Another remarkable five-star  nail lacquer from O.P.I, I'm Sooo Swamped!is a lively and attractive color for Summer.
