After I saw several bloggers post PR swatches of the OPI Ballet Collection last month, I was obsessed with getting it for myself. They were so light and pretty, and jellies! I was especially excited about the grey.
But after trying them for myself, I wonder, were the PR samples thicker than the bottles sent to the general market? I did three coats of all, leaning towards medium to thick coats as I have read suggested, and still have some areas of uneven color and streakiness and definite visible nail line. Who has time and patience for 4 coats? For me, the more coats I apply, the more likely it is to peel.
As I said, all swatches below are three coats of color, and I topped alternating fingers with one coat of the glitter topcoat from the collection called Pirouette My Whistle.
And don't think I am not pleased with these- I still they think are quite pretty, and especially love the effect the top coats gives, and the grey is definitely my favorite. I just wasn't able to duplicate the opaqueness that bloggers with PR samples had in their three-coat swatches.
