OPI SoftShades Collection 2015 (Photos, Details & Swatches)

Some of OPI’s SoftShades for 2015 look as though they may work out for me despite the fact that I tend to shy away from sheer polishes? At first glance, the collection looks great for the bridal season and/or anyone that likes that light wash of colour on their natural nails. I myself love bold, bright, full-coverage shades but soft, subtle hues can easily lighten up your Spring/Summer style. The new collection of blushes, nudes and matte shades delivers true-to-bottle colour and can also be used to create nail art via their exclusive Swarovski crystal kits. Let’s take a closer look.

Act Your Beige! – Light Beige (looks best in 3 coats)

Put it in Neutral – Pink-toned Beige (slightly streaky; requires 3 coats)

Petal Soft – Pink & White Flecked with White Daisy Decal (looks best as a top coat)


Chiffon my Mind – Sheer White (slightly streaky; requires 3-4 coats)

Make Light of the Situation – Iridescent Glitter (this one is gorgeous and a must-try!!) 

This Silver’s Mine – Pearlescent Silver (very thin coats work best with this formula)


I used 3 coats for each swatch below. As you can see, some of the shades are still quite sheer, while others (i.e. Petal Soft & This Silver’s Mine) could have probably used one less coat? (L-R): This Silver’s Mine, Make Light of the Situation, Chiffon my Mind, Petal Soft, Put it in Neutral & Act Your Beige!
