OPI Always Bare For You Spring 2019 Swatches and Review

Hi everyone, welcome back! Today I will be showcasing swatches and my review for the Always Bare For You collection by OPI. This collection contains 6 brand shades that embraces sheer and soft finishes - very dainty and feminine.

Let's get onto the swatches!

-----

OPI: Baby Take a Vow

OPI Baby Take a Vow is a sheer jelly pink.

My swatch down below shows this applied in 3 coats. Keep in mind that these polishes are meant to be sheer, so you will have visible nail line peeping through. I really enjoy how smooth this applied and didn't experience any patchy spots. This shade in particular is my favourite from this collection and will definitely be getting many uses out of it!

OPI: Bare My Soul

OPI Bare My Soul is a nude/pink jelly.

My swatch down below shows this applied in 3 coats. My thoughts on this shade as far as formula and application is the same as the above polish, Baby Take a Vow.

OPI: Ring Bare-er

OPI Ring Bare-er is a blue/grey jelly.

My swatch of this is shown in 3 coats. Again, formula and application is the same as the previous 2 polishes. At first I thought this was going to look weird on the nail being jelly/sheer, but was actually surprised at how much I enjoyed this one. Definitely unlike anything I have in my current collection!

OPI: Engage-meant to Be

OPI Engage-meant to Be is a light grey jelly.

My swatch of this is shown in 3 coats. This was another one that surprised me, as far as how it would look on the nail. In my head I thought because of the sheer formula + the grey colour, it would make my nails look dirty (lol) - it did the opposite! I found it to be quite fresh looking and can see myself grabbing for this several times - love it!

OPI: Chiffon-d of You

OPI Chiffon-d of You is a frosty soft pink.

My swatch below shows this applied in 3 coats. If you're someone who dislikes visible brush stoke lines, this won't be for you. The formula was great to work with, minus the brush strokes.
Tip: To help minimize visible brush strokes, aim to apply these types of polishes in thin even strokes.

OPI: Throw Me a Kiss

OPI Throw Me a Kiss is a shimmering topper.

My swatch of this is shown in 3 coats on its own, down below I will share swatches of what it looks like overtop 3 shades from this collection. The formula was great to work with and had no issues. If you enjoy a soft and subtle look, this is great overtop the natural nail in just 1 coat - very pretty. I however wanted to build it up and prefer wearing it this way on myself (in 3 coats).

I like the subtleness this collection brings and makes for wonderful everyday kinda shades. Especially for those whom work in workplaces with rules against bold nail colours. I usually have a hard time getting sheer colours to apply smooth and even - these are magic! I can definitely see myself using some of these over and over again. 

The OPI Always Bare For You collection is available for purchase early April 2019. Nail Lacquers will retail for $10.50 ($13.30 CAN) each and Infinite Shine colours will retail for $13.00 ($16.40 CAD) each and $6.50 ($8.20 CAD) each at professional salons.

Which of these shades do you favour? Let me know in the comments below.
