OPI Sheer Tints

Here’s a quick look at a couple of the new OPI Sheer Tints, I Can Teal You Like Me and Don’t Violet Me Down.

These are both very sheer polishes, as the collection name suggests.  In the photos below I used two coats, which gave the nail a wash of color.  I find that the polishes are not flattering on their own, but are perfect for nail art and layering.

The consistency is thick and syrup-like, so application can be a pain.  Also, I had trouble with bubbling… even with just one coat.  It’s not noticeable from afar, but you can definitely see it up close.

OPI suggests another layering technique in this video, though I think I’d prefer a white base for that, as well.

 

So what do you think?  Will you be picking up any of the Sheer Tints?
