OPI Fall 2011 "Touring America" Preview

I feel as though there hasn't been too much hype surrounding this collection. Maybe it's because OPI has overwhelmed us with so many wonderful collections already this year! (Texas, Pirates, Nice Stems!, Shatter, Serena Duos, Miss Universe, am I forgetting any?) This collection is their full fall collection for 2011, meaning that it will consist of 12 lacquer shades. I prefer smaller collections since it makes it more feasible to buy the whole collection, or at least all of the shades that you like. With a full 12 piece collection this could get a bit pricey.
This collection was inspired by a road trip across the USA, and many of the shades include names of American cities. OPI posted a video on Youtube featuring the shades a while back, but now that the release date is quickly approaching, it's time to get familiar with the names and colours! The ones I'm particularly interested in, based on the video and some other swatches that I've seen include French Quarter For Your Thoughts, Suzi Takes the Wheel, Honk if you Love OPI, and I Break for Manicures. However nothing is really "wowing" me from this collection, unlike all of the other collections that were released in 2011. Also, what's with the name "Uh Oh Roll Down the Window"???! The shade looks nice enough but I'd feel so uncomfortable/embarrassed to say that name when someone asked what was on my nails!
Anyways, here's the link to the aforementioned video. What stands out to you? Will you be rushing out to the stores to get these polishes on the release date of August 3rd? (Hopefully this collection won't be backlogged like all of the previous ones!)
