OPI New York City Ballet

Posted on Sunday, April 1, 2012 | 3 Comments

Every year OPI comes out with a Soft Shade collection, the collection is made up of soft sheer neutral polishes.  This year the collection is the New York Ballet Collection.

There are six polishes in the collection, one glitter and five sheer jelly polishes. 
Left to Right we have: 
You Callin' Me A Lyre? , Care To Danse?, Don't Touch My Tutu!, Barre My Soul, My Pointe Exactly, Pirouette My Whistle

I used three coats for all the polishes so you can compare them. I did have some streaking issues with one or two polishes, I will note it in the description for that particular polish.  

The first polish I have is:

You Callin' Me A Lyre?
This is a sheer pink that I had some slight streaking issues with but it isn't very noticeable.

The next polish is:

Care To Danse?
This is a sheer  lilac polish that I felt is third  most opaque polishes in the collection.  It looks very lavender/ lilac in the bottle but on my nails it seems to be more white tinted.

 Next up is:

Don't Touch My Tutu!
This is a sheer white polish that I have seen being used in a sandwich manicure ( sheer polish, glitter polish, sheer polish). I had some streaking issues with this polish but it doesn't look too bad. This is the second most opaque polish from this collection.


Barre My Soul
This is a sheer beige polish that is very neutral. It makes the nails look very clean and professional.  If I had to choose a polish from this collection to wear to an interview I would wear this Barre My Soul.

The last sheer polish from this collection is:

My Pointe Exactly
This is a very unique polish. It is a sheer grey polish. I have never seen a color like this.  I think this is the most opaque color in the collection.  I think that this is a very fashionable unique color.

The last polish I have from this collection is a glitter!  

Pirouette My Whistle
This is my favorite polish from the collection. This polish contains white hex glitter + small silver glitter particles. I layers it over black so that you can see it clearly. I think this polish is gorgeous and can be layered over dark or sheer colors. I only used one coat in these pictures.

Please note that these polishes were sent to me for my unbiased review.  If you have any questions, please see my disclosure policy.
