You Callin' Me A Lyre? This was my favorite from the collection of sheers because it looked the most natural on me. It's a soft shade of pink, not quite baby pink, but more of a dusty hue. Four coats were required to make it opaque. You can still see some visible nail line though.
Pirouette My Whistle over You Callin' Me A Lyre? I'm so in love with this topcoat. Its similar to Nubar White Dots but much more beautiful. It has tiny sparkling silver glitter and medium white, almost sheer, hex glitter in a clear base. A simple yet gorgeous combination.
Pirouette My Whistle over Don't Touch My Tutu! Gorgeous combo.
Pirouette My Whistle over Care To Danse?
Piroutte My Whistle over Barre My Soul.
My Pointe Exactly. Another favorite from the collection. Soft grey sheer with a hint of blue.
Piroutte My Whistle over My Pointe Exactly.
All of the shades are sheer but I applied them to be opaque. At first I didn't think they would build up at all but they turned out well. A lot of coats are required to make them opaque though. This set is ultra conservative but the sparkling top coat brings the glam to the collection. Overall I like them but they are sheer, I usually prefer more opaque formulas and less coats. They are definitely elegant and you can without a thought wear them in any setting. I really love the glitter topcoat, it's dazzling without being over the top. All of them, except My Pointe Exactly, would make great bases for French manicures. My favorites from the collection are You Callin' Me A Lyre?, My Pointe Exactly and Piroutte My Whistle.
