OPI Soft Shades Swatches and Review

Press Sample

Today I have the new Soft Shades Collection from OPI.  With wedding season in full swing, this collection might be just what you are looking for!

Put It In Neutral - pretty pink sheer.  Nice, smooth application.  The first image shows two coats.

Three coats is much more opaque, but still has VNL.

I added one coat of Make Light of the Situation.  This holo/pearlescent applied beautifully and the sparkle is soft and stunning.

Act Your Beige! - softest, beige sheer.  First up is two coats.  

Three coats provides good application.  Still some VNL, but quite beautiful.

I added Petal Soft and loved the results.  Lovely soft, pink and flower glitter.  I did have to do some fishing to get the flowers.

Due to the size of the flower glitter, it will stick up on the nail. But as you can see, it is a slight effect.

Chiffon My Mind - gorgeous white with purple/pink and blue shimmer.  The application with this one was a tad streaky.  I applied two coats first.

I had hoped that a third coat would take care of the streaks but they were still there.  Application over a white base would take care of this problem.

This Silver's Mine! - the name indicate's that this is a pearl silver lacquer but I found it to be more pewter than silver.  It is such a unique shade! Be careful with the application because your brushstrokes will show.

The sheers in this collection are quite beautiful.  They applied perfectly with a gorgeous. smooth finish.  I also liked the toppers, especially Make Light of the Situation!  There was the disappointment with Chiffon My Mind, but I think a white base will solve the problem.

What do you think of the collection? Got any favorites?

The OPI Soft Shades 2015 collection is available now at salons and mass retailers nationwide including Beauty Brands, Chatters, Dillards, Regis, ULTA and online at, and OPI nail polish retails for $9.50/ea

  1. Ever since I first saw Make Light Of The Situation, I have liked it a lot. I will probably end up getting it! I also like the look of Chiffon - too bad about the application, though. Thank you for your review of these polishes.
