Hello lovelies,

 

My OPI Sheer Tints have finally reached me and I'm happy to show you first half of the '10 Nail Art Ideas' post.

 

When I first saw the Sheer tints I though they will be useless but then I started to see all the nail art other bloggers were doing with them and I started to like the versatility. That is a big plus for me but at the same time the formula is not great. They dry so fast and start create 'strings' which makes them hard to work with and the strings might ruin your design.

10 Nail Art Ideas with OPI Sheer Tints - Part 1 + TUTORIAL

 


The four shades are called I’m Never Amberrassed, Be Magentale with Me, Don’t Violet Me Down, I Can Teal You Like Me.

 

I wanted to do all 10 designs in one single post but when I realised how long the video tutorial would have to be I had to split it into two. Some of the designs are 'recycled' ideas but I was curious about how they would look with sheer tints. I tried to keep it simple because Sheer tints dry super fast and get stringy so intricate designs are hard to do. Also I often get requests for some easy designs :)

 

Here are the first 5 designs:

Hello lovelies,

Sorry for taking blogging break during the weekend, I needed to catch up on swatching and relax a bit. The good news is I got a lot done, the bad news is I didn't manage to write any new posts so I'm now behind in writing...the struggles of a nail blogger :D

Today I want to share a swatch of Barry M Gelly in Pomegranate which is gorgeous raspberry red colour with glossy finish. I don't think I have reviewed Barry M Gelly before but I do like them very much and I plan to buy some more.

Believe it or not, this is just one coat of Pomegranate and topcoat. It chipped after a day and a half so next time I think I'll apply two coats but my point was - it is well pigmented and one coat was nicely opaque :) The formula was easy to work with and it dried very glossy. I know that it is not necessary because we're all using topcoat anyway but it is nice to see glossy finish. The pictures with flowers were taken outside with my phone, the rest is in the lightbox. The lightbox pictures are more colour-accurate.

 

Barry M polishes are available at Superdrug, Boots and barrym.com. I'm listing drugstores first because very often they have offers like 3 for 2 ;) As for international sales, I'm not sure Barry M is available outside UK but feel free to correct me.

 

Have a nice day everyone! Lucie x
