OPI Sheer Tints – Review & Giveaway




Happy Monday? Uhm, yeah…not so much. I’m kind of hating life right now because of daylight saving time and the whole missing an hour of sleep thing. Yeah, 1 hour is a big deal especially when you have to be at work at 5 am. It’s going to take me at least a week to get used to this so I’m probably going to be a grouchster until then. In the meantime, I have a new product to share with you: the OPI Sheer Tints. When I first saw the press release, I had no idea what these were. I googled some similar products and I sort of got an idea of what you might be able to do with a sheer tinted top coat such as these, but I still wanted to try them out on their own to start with.

OPI Sheer Tints 1OPI Sheer Tints 2I am not too impressed with these when worn on their own. They are very sheer so I applied 3 coats to achieve the above results. The consistency of these top coats is also a little difficult to work with–they feel very jelly-esque and tend to dry really quickly so they were very easy to overwork. I started out applying thick coats but thin coats worked a lot better.

OPI Sheer Tints 3OPI Sheer Tints 4This isn’t the most creative use of the OPI Sheer Tints, but I like how this looks. I applied one coat of these tinted top coats over a white base and also used them to do a dot design. If you want to see some cool ideas, check out what Nory from Fierce Makeup and Nails did with them so go check out her post here. The gradient that she did is really fun!

Now for the fun part! I purchased a set of minis so one of you will be getting this set to try out! In order to enter, use the rafflecopter widget below. As always, the giveaway is open worldwide to those 18 years or older. Please don’t enter if your country has strict customs regulations as I will not be responsible for confiscated prizes.

Overall, I think that I need to play around with these some more to see what other ways they can be used. What do you think? Have you used a similar product? Thanks so much for stopping by today, and good luck if you decide to enter the giveaway!

    I don’t have a lot of “lemmings”. I have a lot of polishes I want, but most are attainable, I just don’t want to spend the money right now.

    No.1 lemming? Entire Enchanted Time to Pretend collection, but have given up on them and moved onto ILNP now as much easier to get to the UK 🙂

      Oohhh, I want that too! So pretty! Also love anything by ILNP. The one polish I want but can’t find is Funky Fingers Kenyan Sunset. They released that polish with a different name but I must have the originally named version just because of the name. It has great meaning to me.

    My must have polish changes every 5 minutes so… Idk maybe this collection is it. In a way it annoys me because it’s like ok so you mostly have to layer it over white so why not just use a pastel or light colored polish? But mostly I’m just intrigued because I really like how creative these are and that they’re something new (to me anyway) and seem to have a lot of potential. I would like to do a drip dye type look w these and I’d like someone else to do a watermarble! Haha. Thanks for yet another wonderful giveaway!!

    I don’t think I’d use these. All I can think to do is use them as a topcoat, and I’d probably just put them over a similar color, so it’s like, what’s the point? Haha. I do like your swatches and mani, though (as always).
    #1 lemming…umm…let me consult the list, hahaha. No crazy urges right now…probably would like to have more Sephora X the most. I still have two more from my original list when they came out (Hyped, TNT) and one more from seeing them in person (Mr. Positivity).

    I don’t even know anymore off the top of my head, lol. I want so much that I don’t think I have one “OMG must have” lemming. Let’s say Picture Polish Mallard for now lol.

    My one big lemming is a green Butter London. I can’t seem to remember the name of the polish, nor have I ever found it in a shop. Like ever…
