O.P.I are always bringing out new collections, at £11 a bottle for us British folk it's not purse friendly. When it came to the New York City Ballet collection I wasn't convinced I'd like it but knew my Mum would. The set of Minis usually retails at £12.95 & contains four of what will be best sellers, though in some collections it's an awful selection.
New York City Ballet is the collection for those who want to wear polish but don't want it to look like you are, if you're at school, work or growing your nails. Years ago, I'd apply sheer polishes, with strengthener of course to help them grow, now I have long natural nails.
What shades are in the mini collection?
My Pointe Exactly - A sheer, creamy grey polish.
Don't Touch My Tutu - A sheer, milky white polish.
Care to Danse? - A semi sheer, creamy lilac polish.
Pirouette My Whistle - Micro silver glitter, with hexagonal glitters also.
The polishes apply beautifully, even the glitter applies evenly. Sometimes O.P.I can be hit or miss. However you'll use twice as much polish to get any kind of colour pay off. The swatches show the results of 4 thin coats. Even if you buy a full size bottle, it won't last long for sure. It's a shame because in the bottle the shades look a lot less sheer and very pigmented. My favourite polish of the four? Has to be the glitter of course, I've been using this one for myself. I look after all the polishes in this house, along with doing them. The most pigmented of the four is My Pointe Exactly, the only coloured polish worth purchasing in full size.
Did you buy into this collection? Do you think the same?
