...Do excuse my haphazard posts this week; been a very busy bee indeed and it was my birthday yesterday!... 29 Argh! Lol!... I had a fabby morning kicked off with a lay in; followed by going to meet the very lovely Sam of Fingerfood Nails for hot chocolate, nail gossip AND to pick up the OPI Sheer Tints that she very kindly ordered for me, heavenly! It was so very nice to meet a fellow nail blogger/tech in the flesh at last and I'll look forward to our next get together :)

So in this collection we have a Pink - Be Magentale With Me, a Yellow - I'm Never Amberrassed, a Purple - Don't Violet Me Down and a Blue - I Can Teal You Like Me. They are sheer topcoats to use alone for a simple hint of colour, over white for bright or ombre looks and over other polishes to add a hint of colour; whilst also providing you with a super glossy, fast drying and hard wearing topcoat! Amazeballs!

These swatches consisted of a simple two coats over my natural nails. The polish is a little like sugar syrup (it also looks good enough to eat), so I recommend you have a good amount on your brush and just glide/float a coat on and use as few strokes as possible; they were by no means hard to work with though. Loved the candy shine and rock hard finish with just that hint of colour... I wasn't too keen on the yellow though, unless nicotine stained/dead is a look you're aiming for?!

I had to try a rainbow ombre...

So simple... I did two coats of white and then simply overlapped two colours on each nail three times over, they blended beautifully! Each coat dried so fast the whole thing took me 30 mins while watching Eastenders lol. The easiest ombre I've ever done and with a bit of practice with them, I think I could improve on it.


I'm gonna finish up by simply saying... Buy them ALL!!! Hahaha ;)

Have a good weekend everyone!

      I agree it's the best use of them, can't see me using them 'as is' very often :)

  3. Love the rainbow gradient progression (my favorite way to wear them)! I've been waiting for someone to show these polishes this way ad you did exactly what I was hoping to see and I'm loving the end result (yes, so much so I said it twice!). Also, Happy Birthday!

  4. It was great to meet you! The polishes look fab. I tried them out today and was glad I read this post first as I was able to apply generously from the off - they're definitely not a "thin coat" formula :) xx
