Sorbets Over White


In my previous post I showed you the new OPI Texas Collection. I loved the sorbets but didn´t like the VNL much. I said I will try them over creme polishes and today I want to show you how they look over a white creme. As you can see the more coats, the brighter the color. They still look juicy and I think this is the way I will be wearing them. I know it is a little extra work but I love how they look. If you don´t mind VNL then you don´t have to bother :)
I am showing you how the color builds up, so you can see how it looks after one coat, two coats and then with three coats. The polishes I used here were: Guy Meets Gal-veston (GMG), Big Hair...Big Nails (BHBN), Too Hot Pink To Hold ´Em (THPTHE) and Do You Think I´m Texy (DYTIT).

  1. They look nice, but I just don't have the patience to layer stuff over white...plus, I'm not good at it, so there's always white peeking out at my cuticles haha.

  2. They look sooo much better over white. I neither like VNL, and that's why I was never interested in these sorbets, but now... :)

  3. I only like them as sorbets. I have no problem with VNL and if you layer them over white they are...well, not unique

  8. I was wondering how they would look over white, too! You should try them over glitter, they look awesome!

  10. Well.. It looks really beautiful but I like them without white more. :)) But colors are sooo pretty anyway, with or without white under. :)

  11. They look so pretty and brighter too, but I do prefer to just wear it over a ridge-filling base coat or a really sheer white.

    Incidentally, what white did you use? In the one coat picture, it looks so smooth and streak free. I can never get a white base to look that good. ;_;

  12. Hmm, zajímavé. Nejvíc se mi líbí jen v jedné vrstvě, je to takové něžné jarní :-)

  14. No mě vnl neva a ten sorbet mě nadchl. Já mám jen tu pokerovskou růžovku a přijde mi, že ve 3 vrstvách vnl nemá šanci, leda tak na fotkách - dnes jsem to fotila, tak jsem zvědavá :)

  15. Am I the only one that, besides being annoyed by the VNL, preferes them without the white? I don't know, it just kinda like takes off some of the jelly quality.... I guess.

  16. Great post! I think they look great with any number of coats.

  17. They're all gorgeous but I think I prefer them without the white layer. Strange of me because I didn't care too much for them at first. Your making me change my mind about them!
