OPI My Pointe Exactly

Oops! I meant to post this several days ago right after I showed it with Pirouette My Whistle. Well better late than never ;)

OPI My Pointe Exactly natural light

Normally I have four pictures. Apparently I forgot to take the artificial light one :/ I'm on a roll here.
OPI My Pointe Exactly, from the NYC Ballet Soft Shades Collection this spring, is a grey jelly. It's the only grey jelly I have, so that was great for me. It's very sheer, so I did two thin coats with a third thick coat. I find with these sheer polishes if I use a ridge filler under it helps it become a bit more opaque. Not gonna lie, I did not like this color with my skin tone at all. Once I put Pirouette My Whistle over it I was really happy with it. But, alone. No. Hopefully the others I got from this collection will do better with my skin tone.

  1. This is such a pretty color! I don't own any of the Ballet Collection YET. I have a friend who can get OPI's dirt cheap for me so I am waiting til she makes her next trip to CosmoProf

  2. This was the real standout unique jelly from the Ballet Collection for me! I've never seen a grey jelly before and I"m still not exactly sure how I feel about it but in theory, I like the idea! I'm going to try it in a glitter sandwich this weekend and see if I Can make it really work for me! I actually really like it on your skintone and think it looks great!
