OPI – Show Us Your Tips – Spring 2016 New Orleans Collection

Hi everyone!  Today I have a nail polish from a brand new collection to share with you.

OPI Show Us Your Tips is from the Spring 2016 New Orleans Collection. This collection of 12 nail polishes is beautiful but doesn’t scream New Orleans to me. I think OPI missed a great opportunity for a crazy Mardi Gras glitter bomb!

Anyway, Show Us Your Tips is so far my only pick from the collection. This is an unusual color. I see it as a dusty, dark, blurple-y cornflower blue. As you’re painting your nails you see a lot of multi colored shimmer (and you can still see glimpses of that in the sun or very bright light) but as the nail polish dries down you loose most of the multi shimmer and it just looks silver for the most part in normal indoor lighting. 

My formula was very good. It had a tendency to want to run into my cuticles, but it wasn’t too bad. I thought two thickish coats was fine to my eye, but the camera again showed some bald spots so I added a third coat for the photos. It dries nice and smooth so only one coat of topcoat is needed. The lightbox is making my bottle shots show much lighter and brighter than the polish looks in real life. The finger nail shot is pretty true to color.
