A bit of ballet - OPI NYC Ballet - My Pointe Exactly & Care to Danse?


Despite my love of neutrals (and yes, even sheers) I'm never really interested in OPI's Soft Shades offerings each year. This year proved to be the exception and I picked up a couple from the OPI New York City Ballet Collection - and both are gorgeous! Yes, they are definitely sheer but can be built up. The following swatches are three coats.

First up is My Pointe Exactly...


A grey sheer!! The idea is honestly revolting, but the reality is truly lovely. I'm impressed that OPI were able to offer something that I feel is fairly unique in a Soft Shades collection! This will see heavy rotation in my collection.

Next up is Care to Danse?...


A lavender sheer. More pink on the nail than in the bottle, but still gorgeous. It's kind of like Tickets to Paradise if it were less white and more sheer. Again, this will probably be something I wear quite often!

So kudos to you, OPI. A non-boring Soft Shades collection!

Are you picking up any OPI New York City Ballet shades?

Very pretty! I plan on picking up pretty much all of the ones in this collection. I'm not normally a sheer nudes kind of person but for some reason I'm really digging this collection!

I really was surprisingly impressed with this collection too myself! Since I don't care much for nudes and sheer colors...Don't Touch My Tutu was my favorite!

I really like My Pointe Exactly and will surely be getting it if it hits the Swiss racks. Very interesting and unusual color. I heard the formulas on these was very good too. I usually have trouble with OPI's sheers so that's good news.

Both of these are on my list to get when this collection is released...gads, cannot believe it's getting so close to April 1 - the release date for this collection.

It should come as no surprise to me at this point, but these were my two picks from this collection, as well. I haven't ordered either of them yet, and I'm not sure I NEED to lavender one, especially given how pink it comes across on the nail, but I'm intrigued enough by the grey to want to give it a try.

I want both of these! Wonder if I'm too warm/tan to pull them off however...
