Soul Mates...

Here we are in the middle of the week.  I hope it's been a great week for you so far.  If not maybe today's lacquer will help make it a little better.  The OPI NYC Ballet Soft Shades collection is not your typical soft shades collection.  How so?  Because there are five jellies and a soft glitter!!!

The first shade from the collection I'm sharing is OPI Barre My Soul, a peach toned beige jelly/sorbet built off a white base.  Depending on your skin tone it can look more white or more peach.  I think my pale skin tone makes it look more white but not too white.  OPI Barre My Soul is not a runny jelly, nor is it thick.  The formula is just right and makes application easy.  I used three coats to achieve a clean well groomed look.

I decided to add an equally soft glitter with a hint of color.  NOPI Here Kim's The Sun is a small hex opalescent glitter in a slightly peach tone base.  The glitter flashes green, blue, purple, and peach.  It's stunning but this polish will not reach opacity on it's own.  I used one coat for this mani.  What are your thoughts on soft shades?

  4. I want your nails! Sadly, my nails are the short, stocky kind - and they take FOREVER to grow. I also sometimes bite a few of them. I really really need to grow them out now so that they could look like yours :-P

    1. A few friends of mine that used to bite their nails say that keeping them polished helped them stop. Hope that helps!
