TOPCOAT?: Not until after Nfu Oh - 59 flakies added.
SOURCE: Abop franken for the jelly, www.fabuloustreet.com for the Nfu Oh - 59.
COMMENTS: I've been seeing the OPI Texas collection around the nail blog world, and didn't feel I had to have any of the colors. Then I saw the sorbet/jelly ones in person. Gorgeous! And the store salesperson was wearing one of each of the red/coral/purple ones on her fingers. Want!! At $8.50 each, that wasn't going to work for me, and I didn't have any JCP coupons. I told myself I would create my own sorbets - even if they weren't exactly the same, something with a similar squishiness and shine. So, here is the first one.
Made of two polishes - an old L'Oreal - Stroke of Midnight, and Out the Door topcoat. Simple, quick dry, shiny:
Started the mani by applying rub-ons directly onto base coat. Less waiting, and I knew they'd still show through:
Topped with Nfu-Oh 59 the next evening:
I haven't seen swatches of the OPI sorbets on longer nails yet, but I wonder how many coats those take to obscure the nail line...
