SOOO beyond excited today to show you six of the 9 shades (8 Sheer and 1 metallic) from the OPI ColorPaints collection! I’d been seeing these guys around social media for a little while and really wanted to try them so I’m super happy I was finally able to play with them a little.
At first I thought “yay!! let’s get to nail art!” but once I started playing with them I realized these are not your typical “only for nail art” super sheer tints, NO! these are actually pretty opaque and super pretty on their own even without a base. So I wanted to show you these one by one before I spam you with nail art.
You see two coats plus top coat (Seche Vite) in all pics
Pen & Pink
How pretty are these? I was so pleasantly surprised with them! Formula was very nice and flowy with good drying time (I waited three minutes between coats). As far the pictures you see, I feel like Primarily Yellow would look so much better on shorter nails and even though Turquoise Aesthetic looked beautiful and evenly opaque on my nails, the lighting makes it look a bit patchy. None the less, I am REALLY loving the color payoff on these babies and feel like they’re a great investment. So if you’re in the market for tints definitely pick these up!
What to do with ColorPaints? Well the sky is the limit for any nail lover. Whether it be sponged on, brushed on, saran wrapped, sandwhiched… they work beautifully in my opinion and this is what I’ve done so far (all of the above of course) but believe me.. I’m not done with these at all!
Thank you so much for reading!! Hope you like the manis!

What an awesome collection!!! Your blog is amazing! Do these polishes dry quick like your normal OPI polishes or do they take a while?
Hi!! Thank you for visiting it! They dry pretty quickly i waited about three min in between coats and then topped with a quick drying top coat. The formula on these is amazing
Awesome thank you!
These are gorgeous and I love the art you made with them!
Thank you so much
I’ve been so strong and not bought any of these… Then you go and post your incredible swatches!! My willpower is fading…
Such pretty nail arts. You made me more interested to try OPI color paints now.
All of the designs you did with this collection is beautiful! This is making me want to get my hands on them even more now. I love how the possibilities are endless with these!
Thank you! I def recommend them
Your nail art is beautiful. I bought the minis and they were really hard to work with. I might grab a couple of the full size ones to try again.
Yeah i hate working with minis, from the brush to the uncomfortable cap.
All beautiful and I need these in my life ♡
I got these for Mother’s Day. They are so much fun.
They are indeed!
I’m surprised that these are actually so opaque! I loooooove all the nail art that you did with them. So inspired!
These were definitely one of favorite collections this year. I still need to grab a few of them, like the green one. Great swatches!
Thank you! I agree
Very pretty. I have the mini set and I’m really enjoying playing with them as well.
I love all the different nail art you used these for!
