OPI You're Callin' Me A Lyre? NY City Ballet

11:02 PM


Today I have a polish from the upcoming OPI shoft shade collection, New York City Ballet, to show you. To know more about this collection, you can read the press release information here.

The polish I'll be showing you today is called You're Callin' Me A Lyre? and is a soft sheer pink shade.

Final verdict: I have to admit I really enjoy soft shades to take a break from crazy and full of color polishes. So I was really looking forward to this collection. You're Callin' Me A Lyre? is a pink sheer polish with a sorbet finish. Sorbet means the final look is hyper glossy and somewhat translucent. It's not possible to reach full opacity. Here on the pictures, I wore 3 coats without top coat. Application was flawless, which is not always the case with sheer polishes so I was pleased with it! I really enjoy this polish because it gives a classy, elegant, and clean look. It's easy to wear for a lot of different occasions and what I like the most is it's super glossy finish. However, you have to know you cannot reach full opacity with this polish, but it's not how it's supposed to look anyway. Finally, I'm pretty sure you can do great sandwich manicures with it, using it on top of glitters! I'll have to try this combo soon!

Purchase info:
OPI polishes can be purchased at professional nail salons.
For Switzerland, you can search for licensed retailers here. The New York City Ballet collection will be available from April, 15th.

  1. It's so soft and feminine, I love it.

  2. wow, I'm sorry for all the people that left comments and that don't show up...for some reasons, the blogger system comment is up on this post instead of intense debate system but shouldn't...

  3. I absolutely love this polish, I'm wearing Sally Hansen Sheer Me Now, but I much prefer the look of the OPI shade. Adding to wishlist!


  4. I love colors like this. It's such a pretty polish! Definitely a classy look. And very work appropriate.

  5. I have not been excited about an OPI sheer collection for years. This one a few of the colors have caught my eye on the pre advertising and now a few showing up on blogs. I like this shade. I would do 3 coats like you did. I also like the gray one called Pointe something - cannot recall the name exactly.

    Did you mean to say at the end of your review that this collection will be available on April 15th? You said it will be available SINCE April 15th. You might want to correct that. I thought the sheer collections came out earlier usually as they are aimed for bridal season.

  6. @beachgal: the gray (my pointe exactly) is really original. I'm looking forward to try it!

    Yes, you're right, "since" is not correct...thanks for pointing this out. This collection is supposed to be available in April (according to the official OPI information).
