OPI Show Us Your Tips!

OPI has recently launched their Spring 2016 Collection, inspired by New Orleans! Today I have the polish Show Us Your Tips!* to share with you, and I'll be swatching up the rest of the collection over the next week or so. 

OPI Show Us Your Tips!

OPI's Show Us Your Tips! is a periwinkle colour with a healthy dose of shimmer. When I first saw this polish in the bottle, I was immediately smitten. I couldn't wait to get this polish on my nails! However, once I started swatching I quickly realized how thin this polish is. I had to use 4 coats to get an opaque finish, which isn't ideal. Additionally, the four coats (plus base & top coat) make my polish look quite thick on my nails - if that makes any sense at all!

Formulation aside, I do still really love this colour. I think that it's perfect for Spring, I love purple toned polishes, so it's no surprise that this was the first polish that I wanted to wear from the New Orleans Collection! I've been wearing this polish for 2 days so far and I don't have any signs of chipping, which I'm very happy about!

While I do really enjoy the colour of this polish, I think that a polish should be opaque in 2 (max 3) coats. 4 coats just takes too much time, in my opinion. However, if you don't mind putting a bit of extra work into your mani, then I think that OPI's Show Us Your Tips! is a very pretty colour, and it'll pull you out of this gloomy Winter weather and into the Spring spirit!

Which polish from OPI's New Orleans Collection do you want me to swatch & review next?
