OPI My Pointe Exactly

This polish is OPI My Pointe Exactly, from their new NYC Ballet collection of sheer pastel jellies. It’s a lovely light grey jelly shade with a fairly smooth formula. I did still have some issues with streakiness, but the ridge filler I used was giving me some trouble so that was likely a contributing factor. It was a bottle of Milani Smoothe that is getting close to empty and seems to be causing bubbles. I probably need to add more thinner and wait longer for it to dry before applying polish… I honestly can’t remember now if this ended up being three or four coats of My Pointe Exactly, but I really like the result.

I recently heard a tip for applying these types of polishes without streaks; It consists of applying a quick dry top coat over the first coat of colour, waiting for it to dry completely, then adding a second coat of colour and top coat as usual. It apparently lets you apply sheers and pastels using only two coats rather than 3 or 4 to even out streaks. I’ll have to try this next time. It should be especially helpful in keeping it looking like a translucent jelly (personally, I really like the translucent jelly look, although I know some people hate being able to see their nail line through the polish). This is the only shade I have from this collection so far, it’s the most unique of them and the one that initially spoke to me, but that might change sooner or later…

    If I had lovely long nail beds like you I wouldn’t mind translucent polishes, either. 🙂 This really IS a unique shade!
