Pastel Peacock Nail Art using OPI Sheer Tints

Here’s another great way to use your OPI Sheer Tints…

Start with a white or light neutral base color.  Then do some nail stamping over top.   When that’s dry, light sweep some OPI Sheer Tints over top of your stamps to get this awesome effect!  One of the cool things about Sheer Tints is that they are so translucent you really don’t need to be neat or accurate when you apply them.  Yet the finished product makes people go “hmmmm how did you do that?”

OPI Sheer Tints Nail Art

Not only do I spend a lot of my time working on my blog, but I also read a ton of other blogs!  And what’s a giant reward for all that time spent?  WINNING GIVEAWAYS!

I was lucky enough to recently win a set of mini Sheer Tints by OPI from Polished PR.  Thanks Jenn! I was super-psyched when I found out that I won (I also got a new Gwen Stefani kit) because I loved loved loved the idea of the sheer tints- they seem perfect for a nail art addict like me.  So here’s what I came up with using my mini tints!

I started with a Sally Hansen base coat, two coats of white Zoya Purity, then I applied the color-tinted top coats in a rainbow design. I used the little bottle brush from the mini bottle (no special tools) and did one swipe of each color.  I like where the teal and purple overlap to make a nice blue-ish purple hue.

These sheer tints are fun and the options are endless.  I wonder if OPI plans to make more shades!?!  Has anyone heard any rumors about that ?
