When I first heard about OPI Sheer Tints I was incredibly curious about them! I finally got my hands on them, so I’m going to show you them on their own and then in some attempted nail art.
Lets take a look at the colors on their own
I’m Never Amberrassed
I’m going to kick this off with the one I feel shouldn’t be worn on it’s own. I’m Never Amberrassed is a sheer amber tint. You can pretty much see that it is sheer and glossy, but it looks like I have serious nail staining. I will show it to you over white later in the post though. This is 2 coats on its own.
Be Magentale With Me
Be Magentale With Me is a sheer wash of magenta. I used 2 coats on its own. This would make a decent base for a classic french manicure.
Don’t Violet Me Down
Don’t Violet Me Down is a violet sheer tint. I used 2 coats for this photo.
I Can Teal You Like Me
I Can Teal You Like Me is a teal blue sheer tint. I used 2 coats for this photo.
Here are all 4 shades over white. These can be used over a variety of base colors to tint the base. I used 2 coats of each Sheer Tint over OPI Alpine Snow.
Watercolor Nail Art
I attempted some nail art. This is kind of a watercolor mix of the sheers over OPI Alpine Snow. I used randomly added swipes of each sheer tint color over Alpine Snow.
I definitely like these over white. There are different possibilities on how to use them (I did watercolor look because my nail art is very limited). They are glossy on their own and dry within about 6-8 minutes. The consistency was similar to a fast dry top coat once you get to close to the middle of the bottle. It was a little stringy – but still workable. I was a little scared when I saw them on their own, but layered they are decent. They are incredibly glossy on their own and don’t require a glossy top coat.
