New York City Ballet by OPI SoftShades - Swatches and Review

OPI My Pointe Exactly OPI Pirouette My Whistle over My Pointe Exactly OPI Don't Touch My Tutu!OPI Care to Danse OPI You Callin' Me A LyreOPI Barre My Soul

Pin ItMy Pointe Exactly was my most anticipated polish, and it didn’t disappoint.  Here I wore three coats.  I couldn’t stop staring at my nails! 

Pirouette my Whistle is a gorgeous, easy to use glitter - just remember to invert the bottle so that you can get lots of hex glitter on your brush.

Don’t Touch my Tutu! is a polish that I really really really didn’t think I would like, but it totally surprised me!  Two coats adds a touch of class to my poor yellow-stained nails.

Care to Danse? is a very sheer light purple.  It looked gorgeous after two coats, but I did three just to see how it would turn out.  I can totally see myself wearing this one - and that is not something I thought I would write!

You Callin' Me a Lyre? is the perfect base for French Manicure, while Barre My Soul would be the perfect for an American Manicure.  I used to wear French Manicures and American Manicures all the time (when I wore acrylics - shocking, I know).  I haven’t really felt the desire to wear them again, but if you do then these polishes are for you!  They both looked good after just one coat, but I did two for good measure.

I have never enjoyed an OPI SoftShades collection until this year.  I am in love with this collection, and with my new job I see myself wearing it a lot!
New York City Ballet by OPI will be available April 2012, at Professional Salons, including Beauty Brands, Beauty First, Chatters, Dillard’s, JCPenney, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, and ULTA, for $8.50 ($9.95 CAN) suggested retail for each Nail Lacquer.
