When you have something as amazing as OPI Glitter Off there absolutely has to be a mini collection of all glitter polishes accompanying it! OPISpotlight on Glitter is that collection. Six bling-tastic shades you can wear to your hearts content and then push off easily when you’re over them.
You Pink Too Much has a clear base with large pink hex glitter and small specks of silver holo glitters. Three coats.
Desperately Seeking Sequins has a clear base with silver holo glitter of small sizes, large and even bar glitter! Love this! Three coats.
Rose of Light has a clear base with large silver glitter and small rose gold glitters. Three coats
I Reached My Gold! has a sheer base with large & crumpled gold hex glitter and smaller silver holo hex glitters. Identical to When Monkeys Fly from OPI Disney’s Oz the Great and Powerful Collection. One coat shown because that glitter is a PITA and needs placed. At least it’s easy to get out of the bottle.
Chasing Rainbows is a rainbow of different sized hex glitters in every color of the rainbow and some silver. Near identical to Rainbow Connection from OPI The Muppets Collection Holiday 2011 but I think this one has more silver. Three coats.
Blush Hour has a sheer raspberry jelly base and a truck load of different sized fuchsia and purple hex glitters. Three coats.
They’re all so fun but Desperately Seeking Sequins and Blush Hour are totally my faves! Which ones is yours?

Glitter is beautiful. Glitter is annoying. I love/hate you, Glitter. OPI Glitter Off Natural Nail Base Coat is one of the latest releases by OPI and it promises to allow you to push that glitter right off of your nail.
Here’s how it goes. You paint on a thin coat and let it dry completely. At first it looks like you’re putting glue on your nails (and kinda smells that way). Once it’s completely dry it’ll be sheer. If you do too thick of a coat it’ll take forever to reach that clear point, so wait you must.
Next apply the desired glitter polish. For this test I’m using OPI Chasing Rainbows. I painted three coats of Chasing Rainbows and waited for it to dry. Gently I pushed at the polish and…..
…it came right off! Sign me up for at least 1,000 bottles. As you can see below there are still a few glitter remnants, but removal is nothing like what it used to be with glitter. Awesome!

The OPI Brazil Nail PolishCollectionhas.it.all. Expressive/colorful shades, vampy shades, vibrant liquid sand polishes… If you don’t do a mani or pedi (or both!) after this post then something is wrong with you as a beauty maven (<— kidding, but seriously..).
OPI is always good for taking us on vacation and this time we’re headed to Brazil! Land of beautiful people and popular waxes! I’ve got so many faves in this collection it’s not even right. The formula was surprisingly excellent on all of these shades! I can’t think of one that I had an issue with!
Don’t Bossa Nova Me Around is a nude lilac cream. Two coats.
Next Stop… The Bikini Zone is a silvered purple shimmer with a flash of blue. The pics do not do it justice at all, this polish is gorgeous! Three coats.
Taupe-less Beach is a cool lavender cream. Two Coats.
I São Paulo Over There is a vintage purple cream. Two coats.
OPI Scores a Goal! is a chocolate toned purple cream. Two coats.
AmazON…AmazOFF is a deep teal with a hint of pearl to it. Two coats.
I Just Can’t Cope-acabanais a bright, creamy yellow. One of the few yellows I haven’t had issues with applying. The formula wasn’t perfect, but it’s the second best I’ve ever tried. Two coats.
Where Did Suzi’s Man-go? is a peachy orange cream. Two coats.
Toucan Do It If You Try is a muted coral orange cream. Two coats.
Kiss Me I’m Brazilianis a pinked salmon cream. Two coats.
Live.Love.Carnavalis a vibrant coral cream. Two coats.
Red Hot Rio is a ruby red cream. This formula was the smoothest and felt almost gel like. Two coats shows visible nail line, so if you’re not okay with that three is better..
The Beach Sandies are a quartet of liquid sand polishes in mini-size - Samba-dy Loves Purple (a vivid violet), I’m Brazil Nuts Over You (a hot coral red), What’s a Little Rain Forest? (a vibrant blue) and You’re So Flippy Floppy (a bright, sunshine yellow).
I’ve heard mixed reactions about this, but I prefer the liquid sands to be in smaller bottles. The formula isn’t something that I’d generally wear on all 10 nails on a daily basis, so the mini size is really perfect for me on these bright shades. What I don’t like about the mini bottles is that the names aren’t on them anywhere, so I have to save the box or I’ll forget what’s what. Also, on these particular colors the shades stain the nails, even with a good base coat. What’s a Little Rain Forest was the worst offender and needed worked on and buffed off for a few days.
My faves are definitely the Beach Sandies (even with the staining I love a bold textured shade), Don’t Bossa Nova Me Around, Next Stop… the Bikini Zone, I São Paulo Over There… I just realized I’m going to be naming all of these =\ I love them all. Which is impressive and also expensive.

I don’t know if there’s ever been a nail polish top coat that I’ve been this crazy over. This Spring OPI is releasing four polishes to fun up your dull white mani – the OPI Sheer Tints Nail Polish Collection.
These four “top coats” are perfect to change up your nail look by adding a tint of color. Let’s see what fun we can have with I’m Never Amberrassed, Don’t Violet Me Down, Be Magentale With Me and I Can Teal You Like Me.
Here are the OPI Sheer Tints each swatched directly on the nail:
Obviously that’s not how you’re really meant to wear them, but in the interest of being thorough I went there.
Now here they are over a white nail polish – in the case of this blog post, all OPI Sheer Tints swatches and nail art are done over Nicole by OPI Yoga-Then-Yogurt.
These seem to have a thick formula, but do paint on easily. At first it’ll look uneven or streaky but as the polish dries down the discoloration smooths out. As you pull the brush away from your nail there are very find strings that will trail along. I don’t know why or what they are, but I do know they won’t ruin you mani, so rest easy
I’m seeing this watercolor type nail art quite a bit with the Sheer Tints, but I personally saw it first over on Cosmetic Sanctuary, which was the blogger that inspired me to give it a try!
This mani is so festive and is totally making me ready for Easter, which is still well over a month away! How would you wear the Sheer Tints?
Sheer Tints features OPI’s exclusive ProWide™ Brush for the ultimate in application.
