OPI Drinks: Southern Sweet Tea

The warming weather is a clear sign of one thing - it's sweet tea season! Inspired by our freinds in the South–especially in the city of New Orleans– we're planning to make sweet tea our go-to beverage this spring.

To help, we're serving up a delicious sweet tea recipe that will transform you into the talk of the town. So, go on, layer on a few coats of OPI's Humidi-Tea and invite the ladies over for a fun afternoon in the sun.
