Gradient and rose nail art with OPI Sheer Tints

I wouldn't be myself if I didn't try to make new looks with these beauties.
I started with a white base on all the nails:
Only You White French
Then I used the sponging technique for the gradient.
I sponged one layer of the 4 colors Sheer Tints and actually was pretty satisfied with the outcome;
a sweet pastel gradient with a minimum amount of bubbles.
But of course one of my 4 kiddies needed my help with something and I ruined my index :(
I didn't want to go through the whole process of cleaning, applying basecoat, painting it white, waiting for it to dry and making the gradient again.
So I decided trying to correct the ruined part with some more layers.
It worked...but of course the colors build up too and therefore the other nails had to get some more layers as well. 
Like I mentioned in my review. Layering these polishes will cause bubbles.
I tried to flatten some of them out with a topcoat but this worked only to a certain point.
But only when you take a close look you are able to see them.
For the accent I chose to randomly place the colors on the nail.
I added a topcoat to seal this part.
That way I could use the black acrylic paint and was free to start over when I wasn't satisfied.
I started with other flowers but ended up with the roses.


  1. oh dear ! hard job , i can imagine ! but it came out so pretty ! roses are perfect , love them !

  2. Yep. I agree with Bubica, beautiful but that sounded like very hard work. These sheer tints look fun. You are the second one that I have read that has done cool things with them.

  3. Do love the gradient effect! The colours mixed perfectly well :) It's really unfortunate its so prone to bubbling. I like what you did with your accent too. :D Gorgeous!

    1. One layer is okay but as soon as you start layering it's getting worse and worse. Thanks!!
