OPI Pirouette My Whistle Comparison

Hey everyone! Who's excited for the long weekend - I am! When I first saw Pirouette My Whistle from the OPI New York City Ballet collection I wanted to know how similar it is to OPI Crown Me Already from last summer's Miss Universe Collection. Pirouette My Whistle has medium matte silvery-white hex glitter and silver microglitter, while Crown Me Already has three different sizes of metallic silver hex glitter and silver microglitter. The matte glitter in Pirouette My Whistle is what makes it stand out to me, it's not as attention grabbing as most glitters, instead it adds a feminine touch to a jelly or creme finish.
I layered one coat of each glitter over China Glaze Secret Peri-wink-le. Crown Me Already is on my pinky and middle fingers and Pirouette My Whistle on the index and ring fingers.

In the sunlight, see how subtle PMW is?

While you can easily build CMA up to be opaque, PMW is more of a layering glitter.

  1. I've been waiting for someone to swatch PMW over a darker color, thanks for this great post!
