OPI Designer Series Polished Quartz Swatch & Review

Hi everyone!  I have the two new Designer Series shades from OPI for you today!

OPI


DS Titanium

OPI DS

DS Titanium is a charcoal shimmer loaded with iridescent glitters.  The formula was smooth and easy to apply, but does dry naturally with a semi-matte finish.  I just love this shade!!  It's just like wearing crystals on your nails!
Shown is two coats of DS Titanium.

OPI DS


DS Tourmaline

OPI DS

DS Tourmaline is a bright rose pink shimmer loaded with iridescent glitters.  The formula was smooth and easy to apply, and also dries with a semi-matte finish.  This is a fun shade to wear, but was just a little too bubblegum for my taste.
Shown is two coats of DS Tourmaline.

OPI DS

These two shades will be available in September.
I hope you enjoyed!  Happy Painting!

Mosaic Baubles

Hi everyone!  Today I thought I'd try my hand at the mosaic technique you might have seen popping up lately.  To be honest, I have no idea where this technique originated - so if you know, please let me know in the comments below!!

Dance Legend

I started off with two coats of Dance Legend Grey Britain, and two coats of Dance Legend Cetraria on my ring finger.

Dance Legend

I applied a third thinner coat, and, while it was still wet, I used the polish brush from the contrasting color to place some dots.

Dance Legend

With a wet base coat, the dotted on polish spread out instead of staying so uniformed.  I finished with one coat of SV.

Dance Legend

I absolutely love the end result.  This was actually a lot of fun to create, and I really liked the randomness of it all.
I hope you enjoyed!  Happy Painting!
