The New OPI Sheer Tint Top Coats | Photos, Swatches, and Review

OPI Tint1

This spring OPI takes nail color to the next level with revolutionary Sheer Tints; the brand’s first-ever, pigmented top coats. Sheer Tints by OPI offers a fresh take on traditional top coats with the introduction of 4 new vivid hues in Blue, Pink, Yellow and Purple. An infusion of transparent color with high shine, these top coats can be worn alone, with a base coat for a playful sheer or layered over any shade to create an alternate finish for a progressive nail look.

“Nail color is all about self-expression; apply Sheer Tints over your favourite OPI Nail Lacquer to achieve your dream shade, accent glitters and darks or transform crèmes and shimmers,” explains Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Co-Founder & Executive VP. “Make a statement by creating an ombre design that is on-trend then add several coats to create dimension.”

I’m Never Amberrassed Liquid amber morphs into a veneer of yellow tint that is anything but bashful.

The texture of these is very different. They are very thick and gummy. This makes application a tad tricky but they really even out nicely to an even tint, even on my messed up nails. All the above swatches are only one coat. These tints will certainly make quite a change to any polish you apply them over. I find dry time a little long due to the consistency though. I recommend making sure you’re polish underneath is pretty dry. To test out the effect I tried Be Magentale with Me Give over the peachy nude Chillin’ Like a Villain from the upcoming Muppets collection to see if it would turn it into a more coral nude which I thought would be fun

You can see it went right past coral nude to more of a pink coral shade. It would have looked much better if the base polish had have been more even. I really love the dimension these jelly like polishes give.

Sheer Tints will be available March 2014, at Professional Salons and Spas for $10.95 CAN suggested retail.

      Ya they aren’t really meant for over bare nails. I just did that to show the colour. They are meant as a top coat over other polishes. ;)
