Glee Season Finale!

Tonight is the Season Finale of Glee... So, I did a mani for the occasion.

The black polish that I used for the music notes smeared when I put the top coat on.  Grrrr.... but, I wasn’t about to take it all off and do it again!  It’s not too noticeable in real life but, you can see it when it's zoomed in.  (sigh).

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.
