OPI SoftShades Collection swatches, review, bridal nail art

Wednesday, April 29, 2015


OPI, is celebrating the lighter side of nail color with The SoftShades Collection. This collection of blushes, nudes, and matte shades delivers rich, true-to-bottle color with just a few coats, even in the lightest hues. I'm excited to be able to share these with you. These shades simply scream "wedding" to me. These polishes are perfect for a walk down the aisle or an everyday soft and subtle look. I used one of these sheer polishes to create a stunning bridal nail art look.
 

So let's take a look at these sheer polishes. 





Chiffon My Mind is a sheer white shimmer polish. It builds to opacity well. This is three coats with a top coat. I had no issues with application. The shimmer in this white polish makes it a perfect classy bridal polish.

Put it in Neutral is a sheer pink-toned beige polish. It is classy and a perfect sheer nude shade. This is three coats with no top coat. I had no issues with application.

Petal Soft is a pink and white flecked with white daisy glitters. The daisy glitters did require a bit of fishing, but not too much. My nails have a distinct curve to them, which means large glitters rarely lay flat on my nails. I have it on here over Put it in Neutral

Act Your Beige! is a sheer light beige polish. Can't you just envision this one on a blushing bride's nails? This is four coats - I could have only used three, but I had one ridge that kept wanting to peek through. I had no issues with application.

This Silver’s Mine! is a pearlescent silver polish. I love this polish. The brush strokes don't even bother me. It just seems to add to the finish. This is two coats with a top coat. I had no issues with application.

Make Light of the Situation is an iridescent glitter - almost a flake polish. It will be a perfect accent over most any polish. But I chose to show it over "This Silver's Mine!." I had no issues with application.

I used Act Your Beige! For this classic wedding nail art. I used two coats of Act Your Beige! and then stamped Mundo de Unas White that with an image from BundleMonster image plate XL07 and then topped it with another coat of Act Your Beige! It's the look I was going for - subtle and sexy - yet classy.

I am enjoying this collection. It's soft and subtle and yet makes a bold statement. These shades are perfect for a wedding manicure. Are you going to pick any of these up? Oh, and if you fall in love with any of these and want it to last for a while, OPI also features these new understated shades in their gel formula.

SoftShades Nail Lacquers are available at ULTA, ULTA.com and select professional salons for $9.50 retail.

These polishes were sent to me for an honest review. All opinions are my own. Please note that computer monitors can display colors differently.
