OK, I’ve mentioned OPI’s new sheer tinted polishes, Color Paints, several times and am still on the lookout to buy the mini set in person. I think they should be showing up at my local Ulta very soon.
Now I’ve heard of a similar set coming out from Essie, although the blurb I read said they will only be available through salons.
Delicate effects. Vivid hues. Sheer beauty. Essie is thrilled to announce the launch of the Silk Watercolor collection. As the fashion industry’s go-to nail color authority, these exquisite sheers embody Essie’s passion for artistry, trend and boundary-pushing creativity.
Available exclusively in salons, this collection of layerable, buildable colors is a chic departure from traditional creams, adding soft dimension to every professional’s palette. Add an artistic touch to nail designs in the spirit of Cézanne and Van Gogh, with a whole new level of virtuosity.
Translucent, blendable color makes watercolor effects a breeze; overlapping shades create a range of tonality and depth. With a nod to fine, hand-painted silks and chiffons floating down the runways, this unprecedented collection of nine shades unlock the creative genius in every nail artist.
At any rate, meet the Silk Watercolor Collection.
This set has a bright white to use as a base while OPI’s Color Paints has a silver metallic.
Essie’s colors look really pretty but if they’re only going to be at salons it seems to me that would make them harder to buy. Guess we’ll see!
