After my adventures trying to create my own tints, which worked well enough, I stumbled across three OPI tints for a good price at a pharmacy in town ($10 each, which in NZ is pretty decent for OPI). Of course I had to buy them and try them out!
OPI tints “I’m Never Amberrassed” and “Don’t Violet Me Down” over OPI “DS Radiance”:
I was quite impressed, the colours are really nice and they go on well enough. I did find that I had to do quite a thick layer to get the tint to show through properly, but as you can see from the pictures it is quite vivid.
I have now added these to my travelling nail kit because I feel that they will be quite versatile and allow for a lot of different uses and patterns. My favourite is to use them over silver, but I also want to try marbling with them! That’s another adventure.
For now, have some pictures of the stamping I did over the top of this pattern using Mundo de Uñas black.
