OPI - Guy Meets Gal-veston

APPLICATION: Smooth
COATS: 3
TOPCOAT?: Yes
SOURCE: JCPenney
COMMENTS: After the previous manicure I still wanted more jelly-finish polish and glitter, so I decided to finally try one of the OPI "sorbets" that I managed to get with a coupon at JCP. This one is lovely and applies beautifully. I grabbed some glitter to match. Sadly, these gorgeous iridescent glitters lose their color if mixed in a bottle with nail polish. I placed them individually  between the second and third coat of color.

Oh, and yes, I cut my nails again! They were getting too long :)

  1. I love your shorter nails and this color looks great on you! I've been rocking the Sorbets all summer - I liked them much more than I thought I would. They also look really great with flakies!

  4. Thanks for the info on these! I have a blue glitter like that I got at Sally Beauty and wanted to franken, but haven't tested them.

    Did you place the glitter with a tweezers? I am amazed at this manicure, it's so amazing, the glitter and the jelly. It is so understated, which is awesome.

  8. Thanks for the comments!
    @Paillette: I placed the glitter with one of my dotting tools. If I dampen the tip I can then pick up glitter with it, and it's much easier than using tweezers because these pieces are tiny!

  9. Lovely! I wish I could wear jellies, but my nails seem to get so dirty underneath between hand washings when I wear them that it's just gross...Ok, so they probably get dirty regardless, but with jellies I can see it.

  10. Very pretty. I have a jelly sammich of right now! Are those the glitters from sally's? I just bought some for frankening, and I was hoping they didn't melt. I have the white/iridescent ones.

  11. @Pam: The glitter is from a nail supply place in downtown LA, so I'm not sure if they're the same...

  16. I have that kind of glitter too. I mixed it into my Harry Potter franken and it turned into plain silver pieces. And it made my franken dusty-ish too. :D
