Like any work of art, your manicure starts with a blank canvas—but the end result is a reflection of pure personal style. These color-tinted top coats help transform the appearance of your polish, whether the sheer tints are worn alone, applied over other colors, or layered for an ombré effect. Progressive style yields progressive results.
OPI is a trustworthy brand, so I was definitely intrigued when I received a sample of the Sheer Tints Top Coat in my box. Thrown on top of another polish shade, this product gives a cool color change effect. Nice for revamping polishes that you've gotten bored with. However, worn alone, it makes my fingers look like I've got frostbite (I received the color I Can Teal You Like Me). It's also a pain to remove, and I like things that are a little more effortless. So, while it's definitely an interesting concept, I think I'll pass on buying a full size bottle.3
To everyone saying how the amber color made their nails look sickly, these are sheer nail polishes and are more intended to create a watercolor or tinted effect layered over another polish and not so much to be worn alone which is why they're called topcoats. Although the description states they may be wore alone I believe to get the most out of them it is best to apply over a white or some other polish color. I'm not trying to be obnoxious about this it was just making me sad reading all the negative comments because I think this is such a cool, easy product for adding effects to your manicure. Sorry for the long post!5
I'm not sure why I would want my nails slightly tinted blue. I don't really like blue nail polish on me and the slight tint just made me look oxygen-deprived.1
I had to put several coats on because it was to thin. Color was just ok3
These are the perfect tints for summer months when you want a lighter look, I got asked where I got the unusual color, and the tint lasts for days and days.4
I received the blue color, which I painted over bright-red polish giving my nails a lovely redish-purple color. I think the concept behind this is cool, but only if it was layered over another color. I think it would look strange on its own - like I had painted my nails with cheap blue polish. Overall, I probably would not ever buy this for myself, but it was fun to sample.5
I liked the blue color I received, but I'm not totally sure how often I would use this product. It was hard for me to get consistent color across the nails and it honestly just looked like I had been dying fabric.3
I think people are using wrong this Top Coat.
I used on my last manicure, and for the first time it lasted me a whole week. I was so surprised. I used over my red nail polish and it was amazing, it maked the red really bright a beautyful I got the "I'm never amberrassed"
I got the red/pink version, which is really light on its own. Over the top of other polishes, it has potential to make glitters pop or dull colors to have a little extra. I've got way to many polishes to try it on all of them, but it's a good pair with other reds and pinks.4
I really like this polish for just a hint of color when you don't want a lot of it. looks classy and very nice.4
