Hey there !
So here I am with a slightly different article. This morning I received my OPI Color Paints order and I thought that it could be a good thing for me to share my first impressions with you, before doing a full review ! :)
So what are the Color Paints. I guess you wonder too. First, they have nothing to do with last year’s Sheer tints, nothing at all. And you’ll see it later ;) The idea is to have bright but translucent colors, that you can mix or superpose for nail-arts. Basically nail-art made easy. The silver color is to be used as a canvas for your nail arts, but you can also use a white base, a holo base, or any other color !
The first thing I noticed when opening each bottle, is that the formula is completely different than the one for the Sheer Tints. It’s way more fluid, easier to work with. I also noticed that when you apply them, the colors don’t dry as fast as we’re used to. So no caky nail-arts here, you can take your time to blend the colors together without messing things up.
It’s pretty promising, and as I like to illustrate my posts, I decided to try a watermable quickly. Just to see if they’d work. Each color melts in the water, and it’s pretty easy to create a nice watermarble. Drawing the designs was easy, and almost effortless. For this watermable, I first applied a white base and then used the two following Color Paints : the yellow Primarily Yellow and the teal Turquoise Aesthetic.
I finished my watermarble with a coat of Djinn in a Bottle, just to give it a little bit more dimension !
I mean you can see it on the pictures. Never a watermarble was so easy to do, honestly ! The colors open in the water, and they don’t dry too fast, so you can take your time to create your design. I think it’s the first time that it did all my nails in only one take per nail. I feel like there’s so much we can do with these Color Paints and I can’t wait to play with them even more !
How do you feel about these Color Paints, is it something that you’d buy for your nail-arts? If there are any specific things you’d like me to try for a deeper review, or anything you would like to know feel free to let me know ! Also let me know if you want me to swatch the colors !
Thanks for reading ! ❤
