Swatch and Review - OPI Color Paints Collection Part III

Hello lovely readers! Today I am concluding my review of OPI's Color Paints collection with some original nail art.

You can find my review and swatches of the collection here and here. In today's blog, I wanted to share with you a few nail art designs that will give you a good idea of the range and versatility of these polishes. After all, these polishes were designed with the nail artist in mind! 

Before I go into the nail art, I must show you a swatch of Silver Canvas. This silver polish is meant to be used as a base coat for the color paints and it really brings the colors to life. But don't let that fool you because this polish is fantastic on its own. The formula is perfection; smooth, self-leveling and opaque after just one coat. 

Silver Canvas - shown are 2 coats with no top coat

Polish shown is OPI Silver Canvas

Lead lighting - For this nail art, I filled in a stamp using Magenta Muse, Primarily Yellow, Purple Perspective and Landscape Artist. I used Bling Dipper by Funky Fingers, a silver holographic glitter, as my base. Shown with top coat.

Polish shown is OPI Pen and Pink

Vertical ombre - for this nail art, I use all of my color paints with the exception of  Pen and Pink. I stamped using a stamping plate from Cici & Sisi plate 1 collection and Iron, a silver stamping polish from M Polish. Shown with top coat.

Polish shown is OPI Silver Canvas

Blended gradient - for this last nail art, I did a gradient by blending Magenta Muse (base), Purple Perspective (middle) and Indigo Motif (top). Shown with top coat.

Polish shown is OPI Magenta Muse

Overall, this collection won me over! It is very versatile and the nail art possibilities are endless! You probably have not seen yet my last Color Paint nail art!

As always, thank you very much for reading and feel free to comment below!

  1. Love love love your nail art, especially the lead light!

  2. Your leadlighting is amazing. I've said it a hundred times, but I really need to try that technique

  3. Nice! I just got my hands on these, can't wait to play with them.

  4. Love the nail art you did with the collection. Stunning!

  5. I actually just ended up grabbing a set and cannot wait to use them. And also compare them to the similar Sephora ones that were released.

  6. Love what you did with these! I love that OPI came out with this line

  7. Wow, such brilliant nail arts with OPI color paints.

  8. These polishes are indeed very versatile!

  9. I want these badly! Gorgeous nail art!

  10. so many pretty manis. im not sure on this collection yet. i may buy it if i find it at a really great price.

  11. These mani's are gorgeous!! I can't seem to make up my mind with this set; I absolutely love leadlighting and working with sheers but it seems like I have so many already.

  12. Wow wow wow! All pretty but that lead-lighting over glitter is amazing!

  13. All of the looks are gorgeous! I like the Vertical Ombre the most.

  14. Love the nail art since it really shows the versatility!

  15. The outcome is you get them and either through confidence or propensity you need to re-purchase on various occasions longer than a year, so those £6 trousers set you back more like £48 accepting they most recent 3 months which they will not. plus size silk pajama sets
