Officially launching in April, the OPI SoftShades 2016 Collection includes six pastels that will put an Easter Bunny hop in a nail-polish enthusiast’s step!
My heart fluttered when I saw the pale green (This Cost Me a Mint), and the sunny yellow (One Chic Chick) is right up my alley.
These polishes spell spring to me, and I love how, this year, OPI decided to go with opaque shades instead of sheers.
All of the OPI SoftShades 2016 Collection colours would combine brilliantly together, so those nail enthusiasts among us who love to do dotticures or more complicated designs will appreciate the cohesive theme.

OPI SOFTSHADES 2016
April showers bring May flowers…and Pastels, six freshly minted OPI SoftShades. Softly shaded, seriously opaque and knockout gorgeous, these pastels are unmistakably there. Pale lilac, yellow and green redefine cool, while creamy white makes an indelible impression. Baby peach and blue have never looked more grown up. All are demure with a bit of an edge, and über chic.
“Inspired by the spring 2016 runways, we offer a fashion-forward interpretation of the pastel palette,” said Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Co-Founder and Brand Ambassador. “Instead of the expected sheer and muted look, we’ve chosen a finish that adds a ‘mod’ element to our shades without diminishing their refinement.”
“This is a color story we absolutely love,” adds Weiss-Fischmann. “Our pastels play well together, and create a myriad of sophisticated, feminine looks from accent nails to French tips and nail art. Plus, they bring plenty of modern romance to bridal, prom and other spring/summer occasions.”
OPI SoftShades 2016 Pastels include the following shades in both nail lacquer and GelColor formulas:
It’s in the Clouds
I’m storing this creamy white in memory forever.
This Cost Me a Mint
This cool, refreshing, pale green is so worth it.
