O.P.I has two new releases out which have got me super excited – Sheer Tints & Spotlight on Glitter! They are a break from the celebrity collections and are a must for any nail polish addict.
Sheer Tint’s are a jelly formula polish, thicker than a standard polish but with only a slightly longer dry time. These were a bit tricky on the first application (as you can see there are a few overlaps and bumps on my nails above.) but I asked one of my favourite nail bloggers Maria from So Nailicious for her advice on the Sheer Tints :
– Always apply a white base coat before the sheer tint.
– Use a small fine tip paint brush to do your sheer tint nail art because the formula is too thick on the brush that comes in the bottle.
I followed these tips and found them very useful – Thanks Maria!
The daisy design worked best because of the white polish peaking through, I love the cute water colour effect it gave to the design. Next I am going to try and do a tartan/plaid design building up opacity, like Maria featured on her blog.

Glitter hasn’t slowed down on the nail trend-o-meter, but I have found that the trend has moved to placement glitter. With the most popular being a glitter french tip or gradient glitter moving up from the cuticle base of the nail to the tip, rather than the traditional glitter topcoat look.
‘I Reached My Gold’ – The most chunky of the glitters features gold hexagonal yellow gold glitter with smaller confetti silver and gold pieces.
‘You Pink Too Much’ – Very pretty small shimmer based rose pink glitter with silver accents.
‘Rose of Light’ – Rose Gold and light pink shimmer fine glitter, highly reflective.
‘Blush Hour’ – The only tinted base colour, sheer fuchsia base with purple glitter pieces and silver shimmer accents.
‘Chasing Rainbows’ – If you didn’t get your hands on the coveted ‘Rainbow Connection’ this is an amazing dupe/update without the hype. It is party confetti on your nails.
‘Desperately Seeking Sequin’ – If this was a nail polish was a person it would be Diana Ross, an amazing silver streamer shimmer combo which gives amazing rainbow reflection.
