OPI New York Ballet collection swatches



Don't Touch My Tutu!:

Barre My Soul:

You Callin' Me A Lyre?:

Care to Danse?:

My Pointe Exactly:

Pirouette My Whistle over My Pointe Exactly: 

So these are the swatches of the New York Ballet collection. I felt a little silly doing the swatches because the polishes are so sheer and almost look alike. For each polish I used 3-4 coats to show more of the color. The difference between the colors are very subtle, but I still like them. I like using sheer polishes if I'm not in the mood for too much color, but still want my nails to look  somewhat nice. I hope you all have a wonderful week and hope all you mothers out there had a wonderful mother's day yesterday!

    1. lol I hate when this happens! I always tell myself I'm good with polish and then a collection comes out, or a color that I see and like makes me buy it! :/ They are pretty though hehe

  4. They look so pretty on you! I just can't get into sheers, I don't think they look good on me. I do love the glitter though!

    1. Aw thank, Meredith! Really? I'd love to see a picture with you wearing sheer polish :) Yea, the glitter is really nice!

  5. Even though they're sheer I still like them, they give a really nice tint to your nails.
    Do you think the color would show up better over white?
    Great swatches, I like the type of glitter effect the last one has.

    1. That's true :) I like these when I don't know what to do with my nails. That's a great idea! I should see what they look like with a white base...The color would probably show up more huh? :) I also like the glitter effect that it has hehe

  7. You have amazing swatches and photos! I love the glitter I got to use mine soon!!!
    and also I think the sheers may be useful to make jelly sandwich I so want the grey just because your it looks like it would be perfect to top Zoya Dove and have some awesome glitter in between!

  13. The glitter one is my favourite. You were right about them all looking the same, I seriously thought they were all the same colour! Oops...

    1. I know, right?? When I was posting them I had to remember which picture was which because they look so alike haha

  14. I really love the nudes from this collection! Nude sheers are always wonderful to have!

    1. They really are! It's great to have if you want a natural looking nail :D

  15. Yea they all almost look identical, but have a slight difference in color if you really look. I only bought My Pointe Exactly because it was grayish and since I don't have many sheer polishes it would be good to have for jelly sandwiches plus just like you said, something to make my nails look nice and polished if I don't want to wear a real color.

  19. I like sheer polishes too especially the ones like these. I mean I love buying bright and bold nail polishes but I think do it just to buy them. If anything I'm usually seen in these sheer pink-ish nail color. Thanks for the swatches, Traci!

    1. Yea, same here! I used to wear just the sheer pink-ish colors, but I've started wearing bold colors more often hehe :) I do still like wearing the sheers though. It's nice and simple :D Hehe thanks! And thanks for always visiting!

  20. Great swatches! They all look very pretty but I agree with you about them looking a bit similar. I've wanted to pick one or two up but every time I look at the display the similarities make me unable to choose ):
