After much debating, I finally got my hands on a bottle OPI Sheer Tints top coat. Initially, I was a bit intimidated to try on a polish that helps add dimension to a look. After a little play time, I realized it’s great used alone, can help create a wash of transparent color, and even shift design when applied over a solid polish.

 What you will need:

1. Apply a base coat to clean and filed nails. Paint one thin coat of the purple sheer tint on all the nails.

2. Re-apply a second coat of purple sheer tint slightly below the cuticle line following the shape of the nail to create a subtle gradient.
