NOTD: Delicate Ballerina Manicure

I feel so silly. About a month ago I promised myself I'd start posting NOTD posts on my blog but it never happened. So right now I'm bored and figured it was the perfect time to do my first post. :)

I bought the OPI NYC Ballet Collection minis a few months ago but never felt in the mood to wear them, even after seeing the beautiful swatches on Instagram and blogs. But finally a couple of days ago before going out to see some old friends, I was trying to choose a colour for my nails and decided to break out these pretty jellies!

I'm wearing 3 coats of "Don't Touch My Tutu", a pretty white jelly with one coat of "Pirouette My Whistle" over it, which is a glitter top coat made up of silver micro glitter and larger white/matte glitter! I also have used a coat of Sally Hansen's Mega Shine top coat over this mani.

I did dent this mani before it dried, as I didn't wait long at all between coats of Don't Touch My Tutu. I would definitely wait longer between coats next time so that the mani dries faster and I don't mess it up again.

I'm hoping to pick up a full size of both of these polishes. Having to use three coats of the jelly for it to be the opacity of my liking really sucks because I'll go through my mini bottles very quickly! This collection would be absolutely perfect for a bridal manicure or something of that sort! :) The OPI NYC Ballet Collection is full of some GORGEOUS, delicate, soft colours that I will definitely be wearing more often.

Thankyou so much for reading :) Please leave a comment & tell me what you think about these polishes!
Also feel free to follow me on Instagram (@elissafayy) or Twitter for updates from me or just to chat :)

PS: Please bear with me on my watermarks.. Haven't really decided on a good one for my photos yet! :) Let me know what you think of it.
