What a disappointment...

On a recent trip out to civilization I was so happy to find a bottle of Guy meets Gal-Veston by OPI.  It had been on my wish list since I first saw swatches of it on the blogs.  As you can probably guess, it’s not easy to get nail polish up here in the arctic, so when I saw one lonely bottle of GMGV on the Spa shelf, I gladly forked over the 12 dollars that they were asking for it and went on my merry way.  The entire week that I was on holiday, I couldn’t wait to use it and see what the new "sorbet" finish was all about.  Once I got home and pulled it out I was immediately let down.  It applied smoothly, but it looked like tinted water.  After 4 coats I still had a terrible visable nail line.  So, I ended up taking it off and starting again.  I layered it over another polish that I had of the same shade (Avon Mambo Melon).  As I was layering it I thought to myself, “how stupid is this?  Layering one color of the same shade over another.  Did I really pay 12 dollars for this?  Sigh...”     

So, here it is... layered.  Such a disappointment, OPI.     


  1. Such a shame that it wasnt what you were expecting, i know that feeling. But it looks really great on you. ;)

  2. Still very pretty! You must use some awesome moisturizer, b/c your hands always look so nice...can't imagine how cold it must be where you live.

  3. Try painting it over a plain white. The nail line won't be visible and the color of the polish won't be messed with.
