OPI DS Magic swatch review nail polish manicure

OPI DS Magic – Swatch

OPI DS Magic 2 coats + top coat. Magic is a stunning deep blue nail polish, it’s packed with shimmer (or diamond dust). But it also shifts to purple! I was not able to capture the duochrome in these photos, but you can see it in the bottle. And it was actually very visible on the […]

OPI DS Coronation swatch nail polish

OPI DS Coronation – Swatch

OPI DS Coronation 3 coats + TC. This beauty is a cool silver holographic polish, I did have to use three coats for full opacity and I love it on its own. But it would be perfect as a silver holographic topper over a silver base, it would probably look almost the same! The formula is […]

OPI DS Couture 2 coats + TC. Let us just enjoy this holo-gorgeousness for a moment. OPI DS Couture is a coral orange holographic nail polish, with a pretty strong holographic effect!

OPI DS Opulence – Swatch

OPI DS Opulence 2 coats + top coat. OPI had a “pop up shop” at a store right next to where I live, where they had great prices and 2 for 1 on the Designer Series polishes! So I picked up a few 😉 The Designer Series (or DS polishes) are made with real diamond dust, at least […]

Going pink for October

I am showing my support for Breast Cancer Awareness month with pink on my nails! I did a gradient using OPI – My Boyfriend Scales Walls and OPI – DS Extravagance on all nails except the ring finger, where I used two coats of Extravagance. On my ring finger nail I painted a ribbon using MBSW, […]

TPC – Funky French!

I have wanted to join the Tri Polish Challenge for a while, I don’t know why I haven’t before. Maybe I because I haven’t like the colors or haven’t had time. But for February the colors are Brown, Pink and Grey, and I love those three colors, so I decided to jump on! For my […]

I’m Batman!

When I did these nails back in August, a colleague of mine thought the middle nail looked like Batman and made a wish on the spot for me to do Batman nails for his birthday. Sadly I completely forgot when his birthday came around and decided to do them as a “christmas present” instead 😉 […]

OPI – DS Pewter

One perfect coat of OPI – DS Pewter. This is the second Designer Series 2013 polish, a charcoal gray filled with silver differrent sized glitter. It dries matte, and slightly rough, but I wouldn’t call it textured.     The photos below are with a glossy top coat, which deepends the look of the polish, […]

Chevron madness

White, mint, pink and chevrons, isn’t that just the perfect combination for summer?   This was a difficult mani, not that the execution was difficult, I just messed it up multiple times! First I wanted only pink and mint chevrons on my thumb and pinky, but it did not look good. So I freehanded white […]
