OPI Texas Collection: Guy Meets Gal-Veston... with Watermelons?!

I couldn't resist - I picked up another sorbet polish from the latest OPI Texas Collection. In the shops it looks exactly like another in the bottle. I don't remember which. But the swatches were showing Guy Meets Gal-veston as more pink and it was pretty. So I went to work... and I kept thinking of watermelons for some reason? I know it's been done to death but maybe not like this :-D


Guy meets gal-veston looks pink painted over white, but comes out more deep coral pink on the nail. Like watermelon @_@


I'm a big fan of the 'sorbet like' finish from this collection. Regular flash swatch below:


Looks quite pink there. But less so in natural light but that might be my room light affecting the colour:


The watermelons were pretty easy to draw. Two crescents, filled with pink and dots for seeds. Easy. Progress shot below. I used Essie Pretty Edgy and OPI Who the Shrek Are You for the outside of the watermelon:


I actually have a full size of Who the Shrek Are You. Honestly I have no idea why but I'm glad I found a use for it ;-) I'm left handed so the left hand was the 'trial' hand and the right is better looking. They are super cute though and I received some compliments out shopping so that was nice :-)


Natural light shot below:


So for this look I used Essie Pretty Edgy for the first crescent, OPI Who the Shrek are you for the second crescent, Essie Knockout Pout for the watermelon part and Illamasqua Scorn for the seeds.


Well I hope you have a great weekend and enjoy the look. I rarely keep nail art on for too long but this one I'm really loving so why not? ;-) Until next time...

    If only summer were here. It's freezing today, I had to turn the heater up.
