This is a delicate topcoat that adds a subtle sparkle and works best over OPI Exactly My Pointe. I have used this topcoat on my toes, as a French tip over Exactly My Pointe, and as a topcoat on my left ring finger only. It is lovely. I get compliments every time I wear these two colors from the OPI ballet collection.
Pirouette My Whistle has gorgeous hex glitter and micro glitter suspended in a clear base. It looks great layered over pale pink/nude polishes which is how I like to wear mine. The glitter is not dense, infact it's quite sheer on it's own and will need multiple coats.
I got this in the mini NYC ballet set and currently wearing it over 2 coats of My Pointe Exactly. It's a stunning clear top coat with tiny silver glitter and larger hex glitter. It looks so elegant and not at all juvenile like some glitters can be. Lusting after all the shades in this collection now!
I have a love hate relationship with nail glitters. I really enjoy that this is subtle enough for daily wear and doesn't look overdone or juvenile. The glitter is not obvious or pointless either. It looks elegant and dainty over any light colors and does not feel gritty or chunky. And although it does not appear special it is quite unique and worth getting.
I really like the unique glitter in Pirouette My Whistle. It has small silver glitter with delicate opaque whitish-silver hex pieces inside. It dresses up a nice neutral nail without being too flashy. One coat is enough if you just want a light amount of sparkle. The finish is nice and glossy as well. Wears well. Very lovely, would buy again.
This isn't just a sprinkle of glitter (very pretty) but what pulled me was the little white dots! It's retro and ballet and unique all at once. It reminds me of an updated "That Girl"! The dots are so 60's somehow! I use Deborah Lippman the Stripper to get it off no problems at all - super easy. I use a base coat (Diorlisse #500 Petal Pink) and this as a top coat and my fingers look both fresh, clean and interesting and the shine will last until I remove it due to the tiny sparkles. I took a lippie off becaue the dots float to the bottom and are hard to get in the formula so either you have to do a ton of coats OR glop it on. When they can suspend the dots better I would raise it to 5. Also, because of that, I didn't get the effect that was demonstrated on the model nail so I was disappointed. But I still love it.
When I first saw the swatches of the OPI NYC Ballet collection, I was pretty excited. I thought that I would want at least 3 colors, but only ended up getting this one. I already had Sephora for OPI Flurry Up! at home, and thought that this was likely to be so similar that I wouldn't want to get this one. I tried this in the store and liked it, and found that it wasn't so chunky as the Flurry Up. I got it home, and compared the two (I have a pic in my profile), and indeed this one is much less chunky than the Flurry Up. The large sparkles in this one are not as much of a dark silver as the sparkles in Flurry Up, more of a light, bright silver. I have used this over nude polishes, and also over opaque colors; it looks great with both. One caution is that this is hard to get off your nails! It takes a little elbow grease, but if you don't mind, this is a lovely color, and a great addition to my NP collection!
