NOTD OPI Sheer Tints Nail Stamping Design

Hello everyone! I just wanted to share my NOTD using the new OPI Sheer Tints. I applied 2 coats of each polish over white stamped nails with a black base.  The outcome was a  pretty vibrant look. 

From top to bottom: I'm Never Amberrased, Be Magentale With Me, I Can Teal You Like Me, and Don't Violet Me Down.

I love how this turned out. Super easy and eye catching. I may try layering with glitter next. These are so much fun :)

Thanks for stopping by!

OPI Sheer Tints 2014 - Swatches and Review

Hello everyone! Today I have the new OPI Sheer Tint's to share with you. The collection is composed of 4 sheer jelly polishes.  I would say they are even more sheer than jellies, hence the name.  They add just a touch of color to your nails. The shine is strong since the colors are so sheer. The formula is interesting and almost gooey. I had a couple of strings of polish linger after it was applied.  

I'm Never Amberrassed - sheer amber that came across more yellow next to my skin.  I think this is my least favorite from the bunch due to lack of contrast. I'm sure it will look better against other skin tones. I used 2 coats. 

Be Magentale With Me - very pretty pink/magenta sheer. My favorite from the collection. I did have to use 3 coats though.

Don't Violet Me Down - gorgeous violet sheer. My ring finger smeared, probably because I didn't let the polish dry between coats. I used 3 coats. here. This is my second favorite.

 I Can Teal You Like Me - came across more blue against my skin tone, but I can definitely see the green.  I used 3 coats again.  

The colors are perfect for Spring and Summer. You can create some pretty interesting effects by layering glitters and stamping designs. I may try a few layering designs I've seen done in the past. OPI suggests to use them alone or as a top coat to add color and dimension.

If you're wondering the sheers are not as intense as other jelly polishes I own. With previous polishes I was able to get them pretty opaque with 4 coats, but I believe the sheers will take at least 5. As mentioned above, the formula is gooey and should be allowed to dry between coats. I believe that's why my Violet nail smeared. Overall I really like this collection and can't wait to play with them more. My favorites are Dont' Violet Me Down and Be Magentale With Me

 I don't have a release date for the Sheer's but hopefully they will be available soon!

OPI Glitter Off Natural Nail Peel Off (Peelable) Base Coat Review

Hey guys I have another post for you today featuring the new OPI Glitter Off natural nail base coat. I'm not sure if the ingredients are composed of glue but it applied similar to the Elmer's Glue base coat.  The formula is a medium consistency and applied well. It dried to a matte finish and I did not notice my nail ridges after the base coat dried.  It took approximately 6 minutes to dry. I only used 1 coat. 

OPI Brazil Spring and Summer 2014 Collection - Swatches and Review

Hello everyone! Today I have the OPI Brazil Collection to share with you. Starting with quick swatches of the Brazil Sands.  All of the polishes were 3 coaters, but the yellow (You're So Flippy Floppy) was surprisingly a 2 coater. They are pretty flat but the colors are still pretty. My favorite is the purple (Somebody Loves Purple).

I Just Can't Cope-acabana is a beautiful canary yellow creme, opaque in 3 coats. This was one of the stand outs in the collection for me.  

Kiss Me I'm Brazilian. I love this one just for the name. A pretty girly pink for the Spring. Opaque in 2 coats. I like here :)

Where Did Suzi's Man-Go? Another pretty color for the spring. I used 3 coats but could have gotten away with 2. I also love this color, maybe not the most unique, but really pretty.

Toucan Do It if You Try. Two coat coral. I'm sorry but my camera is really changing the color here.  Please see the video on this collection for better color accuracy. 

Live Love Carnival. Similar to Toucan but I like it better. My camera is changing the color again but it's more of a hot coral, if that makes since. I know some are in love with this color but the 2 corals are my least favorite from the collection.  

Toucan and Live Love Carnival side by side for comparison. 

Don't Bossa Nova Me Around.  I'm not sure how to describe this color it's light grey with a hint of pink/purple. Very pretty and I think this would look great on most skins tones.  I used 3 coats. 

Taupe-less Beach - Similar to Bossa but 3 to 4 shades darker.  The formula was also slightly thicker and only needed 2 coats. 

I Saa Paulo Over There.  Another great creme that falls in line with Taupe-less Beach. I used 2 coats. 

Next Stop...The Bikini Zone. Grey/violet shimmer finish. I needed 3 coats to make it opaque. In the bottle it almost looks duochrome but sadly it's not.

Amazon...Amazeoff. Gorgeous and absolutely my fave from the collection! This is the most unique to my stash. Be careful because it stains quickly, even when only swatching I got stains. I used 2 coats here. Teal creme with a pearlesque finish.

OPI Scores A Goal! Pretty but not very unique. Almost a dusty burgundy opaque with 2 coats.  

Red Hot Rio. I'm not a fan of red but I really love this. So shiny and sheer it's almost a jelly. I used 2 coats and it has a lot of gloss going on without a top coat. Another fave from the collection.

I like the collection but with the theme being Brazil I would have loved to see a bright green or blue.  The colors in the collection are pretty but with so many cremes, there are probably a lot of dupes out there. Overall I believe everyone can find something they like here. If not for the colors, for the names. OPI really got creative and must have had a blast selecting names for this collection.

The Brazil Collection is available now at retailers that carry OPI.
