Sheer Tints over Glitter


I've wanted to try this 'look' on my nails for a while after seeing others do similar. I bought the OPI Sheer Tints mini collection soon after it was released, but struggled to think of ways to use it in my manicures. The collection consists of clear polishes that are 'tinted' with colour - so you can use them over other colours to alter them, or over white to create a pattern etc.

For this manicure, I started with a base of a silver holo polish, and topped this with glitter. Here it is before I started playing with the sheer tints: (I especially like the shadow of my hand in this pic, haha)

I then got the sheer tints, and dabbed the colours in a random pattern on each nail. I let them overlap a bit to create new colours, and then added topcoat. 

The result was a lovely, shimmery glittery manicure!


  1. Oh, this is lush! I definitely need to try this!

  2. I love this. I am tempted to get the sheer tints, but I have read that they are rather thick and gloopy to begin with - did you find that?

    Beautiful nails as always x

    1. I did find them a bit strange to start with, not sure if they were thick and gloopy but they didn't apply like I thought they would - they didn't seem to blend as well as other people had managed - but I think it's just learning how best to use them! Xx

    2. Hmmm, interesting! I'll have to have a think about it - Thanks x


Please add a comment, I love to read what you think :-)
