Miscellaneous Sorbet Nails - NOTD

I am sorry. This is going to be yet another of these posts showcasing a limited edition product from the past. Meet 'Sorbet', a mini (4ml instead of usual 10ml) nail polish from Boots No7, released ages ago as part of a gift set.

This is a very unusual polish which I think would divide the opinion. I'm actually on the fence myself. Sorbet is a nudy coral polish with a strong iridescence of green. I am not a fan of coral (although orange is one of my favourite colours) and I would not pair it together with green. Would you do a duo tone yellow and blue polish?: probably not, because it would be a rather odd mix. I think that’s why this polish confuses me.

But I cannot help myself from being mesmerised by this sorbet, moving my fingers from side to side and admiring the powerful green shimmer. This polish applies very very sheer, so I layered 2 (very hastily applied) coats of sorbet over a coat of missguided miscellaneous nude polish.

Which side of the fence are you? Likey or no likey?

Also I have this, http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_xsf_vYMZlR8/TThrXZ73-WI/AAAAAAAACMw/w0v3LooEu6k/s1600/P1040199.JPG It looks more limey green in real live but I loves it!

The on nail swatch isn't quite like in person, looks more like the bottle!
