This Girls Gotta Have Em | O.P.I New York City Ballet Collection

Image taken from weheartit

Hello beauties. A few of you may have guessed from today's title that this weeks 'This Girls Gotta Have Em' post is staying well away from key fashion finds. However nail polish lovers do read on. I'm sure a lot of you are all aware about the new O.P.I New York City Ballet collection which is due to hit the UK towards the end of April. I cannot express how excited I am about this collection and I'm not lying when I say that I want all six shades.

Barre My Soul!


I don't think that there is anything new here, in terms of colour, I'm sure there are many collections and brands which have these gorgeous neutral shades. Five of the six polishes are all sheer and have a touch of shimmer to them,  while the sixth polish is a pretty silver glitter which can be used on its own, or as a top coat to add some sparkle to existing polishes. 

One  thing which really gets me excited about these polishes from O.P.I has to be the names of them. I know the name of a polish shouldn't be the deciding factor as to whether you go out and buy them, but for me the New York City Ballet collection is the ultimate exception!  As a former ballet dancer I adore the play on words they have used for each name and love how its incorporates ballet terminology. My favourite one being 'My Pointe Exactly' as every ballet dancer loves her pointe shoes! 

I think all these shades are adorable and I am 100% going to be treating myself when this collection comes out, I am so excited! If any of you lovelies are just exited as me about this, then let me know in the comments below. Which shade do you think I should get first?
