 OPI sheer tints: Swatches and nail art ideas

OPI's new sheer tints top coat colors can be used in a variety of ways. Here are four ways to wear them, shown in all four colors.

  • The first nail is a gradient effect, which you can create by staggering four coats of polish.
  • The second nail shows the tint over silver glitter.
  • The third nail is painted in a similar opaque shade, with the sheer coat painted on half the nail to show how it enhances regular polish.
  • The last nail shows the sheer color on its own.

You can get creative with nail art and use these in more ways like creating a pattern of polka dots or stripes and overlapping the shades, making a plaid design, painting each half of the nail in a different sheer and letting them overlap and make a third color in the middle.
