OPI Sheer Tints Nail Art + Review

Hi guys,
So today I have the OPI Sheer Tints and a little nail art i did with them. Originally i wasn't too thrilled about this collection, but the more I saw of what people were doing with them, the more I wanted them. And a friend mentioned that the mini sets were available at David Jones, so I hightailed it over there to grab one. Yes I broke my no buy *hangs head in shame* but on the other hand I have my very own set of Sheer Tints!
