My Pointe Exactly

Here is the first of six shades from OPI's new New York City Ballet SoftShades Collection! I'm not normally a fan of sheer colours, but these shades are so pretty I just can't resist!

My Pointe Exactly is a dusty light grey with blue undertones, it reminded me of the colour of a cloud! This colour is pretty after two coats if you're comfortable with a very sheer finish. However, I went on to apply another two coats, for four in total. Application was really good, coats dried really fast, so the four coats didn't take all that long to apply, which was really nice. I didn't realize this when looking at the colour in the bottle, but this shade has microshimmer! At first I thought that I had an insane amount of air bubbles, but I later realized that it must be shimmer. I still can't see this in the bottle, so it's a mystery as to where this comes from!

Overall, I do like this shade, but I wish that it didn't look like I had air bubbles. If the shimmer was a bit more visible, I would love this polish! The New York City Ballet will be available April 2012. Will you be picking this shade up?

Disclosure: This polish was sent to me for my honest review.

  2. I ♥ the sheer nails look. A lot of people look really good with it. I like the look on myself because I feel like it gives me a more defined & classic look.

    1. Thanks for the comment! This one built up to enough coverage for me, anything less and I would be uncomfortable!

  4. This is beautiful. I am so excited you have the collection and are going to show them all to us. I am going into a resurgence of liking sheers again and also build them up like you do often times. Cannot wait to see the entire collection. Last year I was not that gone on many in the sheer OPI collection. However I Juggle Men was brilliant and I have 2 or 3 bottles of it.

    Sheers are classy and really help leave my nails worry free when I am in a situation I just cannot deal with a chip suddenly occurring.

    1. BTW - thanks to OPI for sending these to you to review - few folks review their sheer collections.

    2. What are your favourite shades to layer I Juggle... Men over? I haven't used it in a while! I also go through polish phases, right now I'm liking greys and lighter colours :)
      That's what's great about nudes and sheers, chips barely show!
      Thanks :) I can't wait to show all of them to you! :)
