OPI Ballet 2012 - Don't Touch my Tutu Jelly sandwich


This is from the OPI NY Ballet Spring 2012 collection - a white jelly, very transparent and a little milky.
Here I'm wearing 4 coats and OPI Servin Up Sparkle between layers 1 and 2, as well as on the tips on top.
It's very clean and definitely a palate cleanser... it felt a little boring to me, but I like having a white jelly in the collection nonetheless. The milkiness dulled the holo glitter inside, making it look like plain white glitter - this is not always a bad thing. It looks like snowflakes!
The formula was a little too sheer. It builds up in 4 coats, but even with 5, it's still too sheer. I thought this would compare to Essie Marshmallow, but it never goes solid, no matter what. Otherwise, it's glossy and dries okay (not as fast as I'd like though).

What are your thoughts on pale jellies? Love them or bored of them?

    1. You diiid? That's awesome, it's old and classic... And it's an OPI holo! I wish I was obsessed with polish back in 2004... but dustying helps. Did you dusty for yours?

  4. aww, I thought these would be like the Texas sorbets that didn't dulled the holo. Anyway, I just ordered Don't Touch My Tutu and You Calling Me a Lyre? because I don't own ANY sheers and I figured these would come handy eventually :) (yes, for jelly sandwiches and whatnot xD).

    Thank you for sharing and, as always, I loved your nails and application :)

    1. Yeah I thought they would be clear like the Texas sorbets too! Lyre and tutu are nice though, they're so shiny and pretty!
      I was also thinking of grabbing the peachy pink one...but maybe later.
