OPI Sheer Tints Top Coats for Spring 2014

OPI Sheer Tints

A few days ago I reviewed the new OPI Sheer Tints Top Coats for spring 2014 here. As I mentioned in the post, these can be worn alone as a wash of color OR over other colors. Yes it even says so on the press release and on the bottles.

I think a lot of people didn’t like the way they looked on their own and wanted to see other options. I finally had some more time to play around with them so I decided to swatch them over a white – OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls. Now you can see a different side of them and what they can do.

Also I would like to point you to a couple of blog posts from people who are way more talented than I am so you can see some really cool ideas! Jackie from Candy Coated Tips has some great ideas as does Valesha from Peachy Polish and Carolina from Colores de Carolina.

MLB Collection by OPI

MLB Collection by OPI

Just in time for the opening regular week of baseball is the MLB Collection by OPI.

This collection consists of seven limited edition shades, all inspired by the colors of Major League Baseball. This is actually the first ever professional sports league licensing agreement for OPI.

I am glad that MLB is recognizing that there are women out there who love the sport and who might want to wear nail polish to represent their favorite team. Oh and of course guys, feel free to wear these if you want as well! Here is a quote from Howard Smith, Senior Vice President, Licensing, Major League Baseball “Major League Baseball understands the importance of female fans in the growth and success of our sport, and so we continuously seek new opportunities to diversify our portfolio of licensed offerings to target this extensive fan base. We are beyond thrilled to partner with OPI, a premium brand in a unique category of business, to launch this new line of exclusive nail polish, giving fans yet another colorful way to show off their team pride at the start of the 2014 baseball season.”

Now, let’s PLAY BALL! Sorry, I had to.

OPI Sheer Tints for Spring 2014

OPI Sheer Tints

Welcome to the world of OPI Sheer Tints for spring 2014.

This is the first time OPI has released a line of colored Top Coats. These shades are all transparent colors, which you can wear by themselves or as a top coat over other shades. They have a thick jelly formula and are super shiny.

I have to say I love the way they look in the bottle. They remind me of colored sugar or something. I also love the patterned over-wrap on the caps, and that they all have a different design. It definitely makes them stand out among the legions of other polishes in my drawers!

St. Patrick’s Day Dot Manicure for 2014

St. Patrick's Day Dot Manicure

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

Today we celebrate the patron saint of Ireland named Saint Patrick. I’m not religious in any way, shape or form however I have always loved this holiday because I love all things Irish and green! I’m not sure I have any Irish in my blood. I know I have Hungarian, Scottish, English and possibly Czechoslovakian in me though, so that’s close enough, haha. ;)

Spotlight on Glitter by OPI

Spotlight on Glitter by OPI

Spotlight on Glitter by OPI is a new collection featuring six sparkly, glittery shades.

These glitters all have different sizes and shapes of glitter in them. Some include holographic glitter, some metallic glitter. All but one are suspended in a clear base, so you can either pile them on by themselves or layer them over another shade. I’ve swatched them all for you over a basic black creme. Each swatch is just one coat. The ease of application depends on the shade, so let’s get started.
