Are your ready for something completely different??? Well I have that for you today! I have to say when I first heard about the new Tinted Top Coats from OPI I was intrigued. Originally, I thought they were just a new jelly collection, nothing special. Then I read the information and that they are actually top coats and I couldn't wait to get my hands on them! I knew exactly what I wanted to do! First some information from our sponsor!
This spring OPI takes nail color to the next level with revolutionary Sheer Tints, the brand’s first-ever, pigmented top coats. Sheer Tints by OPI offers a fresh take on traditional top coats with the introduction of four new vivid hues in Blue, Pink, Yellow and Purple. An infusion of transparent color with high shine, these top coats can be worn alone, with a base coat for a playful sheer or layered over any shade to create an alternate finish for a progressive nail look.
“Nail color is all about self-expression; apply Sheer Tints over your favorite OPI Nail Lacquer to achieve your dream shade, accent glitters and darks or transform crèmes and shimmers,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Co-Founder & Executive VP. “Make a statement by creating an ombre design that is on-trend, then add several coats to create dimension.”
Sheer Tints by OPI includes the following hues:
I’m Never Amberrassed
Liquid amber morphs into a veneer of yellow tint that is anything but bashful.
Be Magentale with Me
Give your nails the sweet treatment with this sheer pink tint.
Don’t Violet Me Down
You can count on this crystal sheer amethyst.
I Can Teal You Like Me
It’s obvious you’re head over teal in love with this sheer blue.
I started with the idea to do a dry brush manicure. I used Funny Bunny as my base and dry brushed each top coat one a nail. On my ring finger I used all top coats.
I loved the effect on my accent nail so much I decided to go back and do the same on all my nails.
I created this soft and beautiful watercolor manicure.
This soft, pastel manicure is perfect for Spring. The best part is that it is so easy to create. Just some random dry brush strokes! I do have to say that the formula for these top coats were a bit thicker than I thought. Be careful with your application you could easily overload your nail. Other than that I can see these lacquers adding a uniqueness to some future manicures!
