OPI Designer Series Opulence + Coronation

Do you think that the OPI Designer Series polishes are worth the extra cash? I think some of them are like these two. Others are just fancy glitterbombs that I’d rather pass up. I couldn’t really tell how pretty this is until I put it on my nails and went out in the sun. Sooooooo pretty. I used Opulence and only needed 2 coats. It applied effortlessly.

 

I then used Coronation for the diagonal tips.

 

And lastly I used my new dotting tools for the black dots along the tip line.

What do you think of this? I’m already getting bored by it. I wasn’t feeling very inspired today so I just threw this on my nails. I started checking google for nail art ideas and I came across some really weird shit.

I think this is going to give me nightmares tonight. (Source)

 

This is tacky and cool at the same time. (Source)

 

Is this for real? lol I loooove this. I loved playing Super Mario 3 so much when I was a kid. How bad did Super Mario 2 suck??! (Source)

 

And these because our country isn’t quite fat enough yet. (Source)

Ugh…I guess I need to get my lazy butt to the gym now.

  1. I only have two DS polishes and its mainly because they weren't marked and had no idea they were higher priced until later. I am happy with coronation though…still haven't worn my other one that I can't even remember the name of. As long as I'm oblivious to cost I'll have no real polish regrets.
    And thanks for showing those creepy nail art pics >.< I can't handle looking at those, they gross me out so much…you almost lost a reader here…jk ๐Ÿ˜› but really they are gross lol.

    1. Retail prices for DS polishes are kinda crazy. I got them pretty cheap so I'm not going to complain. I like to "ignore" prices sometimes too. lol Oh, and you're welcome about the creepy nail art. They coral one just freaked me out. It's disgusting.

  2. Oh…and I forgot to mention that I love the diagonal colors and the dots…I got too distracted by the last part lol.

  5. Such a pretty look I love both of those, I have the tan glitter DS one I don't remember the name right now, and I haven't even used it yet! It was about two more dollars more at the place that I go but I loved the polish so much, I didn't even care! Beautiful pink though, I might have to pick that one up.

    1. Thanks Amanda! I do like Opulence but it doesn't look as pretty without direct sunlight. I think I ended up paying like $6.50 for the DS polishes so it's not a bad price. I really only like the ones that have holo in them and not the glitter ones.

  6. That manicure is very pretty! I have DS Limited, DS Sapphire, DS Mystery, and DS Exclusive. Mystery wasnt worth the price, but the rest are in my opinion. I love them and now that summer is coming, they are really going to come out to play! They are one of my fave summer looks.

    *backs away slowly from tree branch/coral/whatever the hell those are nails* What kind of sorcery is THAT? Ewwwww!!!!

    1. I totally agree about Mystery! I keep wanting to get it but I always put it back. I’m glad I looked up swatches because it’s kinda…blah.

      LMAO…”what kind of sorcery is that?” Omg you made me crack up with that. The coral nightmare is pretty gross. I kept imagining those things scratching my back or something. *shudders*

      1. I hate to be too personal…..but how you wipe your butt with those? LMAO! Oh god, my imagination just took me places that make me wanna hurl.

        1. LMAO!!!! You're not the only one who has wondered that. Whenever I see people with crazy long nails, I always wonder how they do lots of stuff. Then I start thinking about all the gross stuff that could accumulate under those long talons and I almost barf. ๐Ÿ™

  9. It's funny that you did this diagonal and dot nails. Cuz I just did some today too and was so bored by them I literally took their picture and took them off. This is pretty tho! ๐Ÿ™‚ Mine were neon. You'll see them eventually. I'm tired of doing swatches but I have so many interesting polishes to share I feel like that's all I have time for. I've seen these nails too. I don't know what's grosser- the length or the designs. Although I thought the Mario ones were cool too… Just too much for sure.

    1. Yeah, something about them just didn't really do it for me. They were ok to look at for like a few minutes and then I was bored.

      I haven't had a good swatching marathon in a long time mostly because I haven't purchased a whole collection since the CG Hunger Games collection. I am patiently waiting for the CG Safari Collection. *salivating*

      I was psyched to see the Mario nails as a curiosity but who could really wear that if they have a job outside the home? Really? The coral nails were just barf-a-rrific. I don't understand how anyone can do that willingly to their nails.

      1. Well that's the thing- nothing screams "I do nothing but wear a muu muu and scream at my adult balding son who lives in my basement all day" than nails that seriously impede EVERYTHING. But.. as something to look at they were interesting. I just hate when you see people with nails so long you KNOW they can't do anything… it really pisses me off.

        I've been swatching like a mofo lately!! All of a sudden I've got my hands on all these drugstore brand polishes and I'm like paint paint paint.. no time for nail art!! On the plus side, it's much less time consuming!! I just don't want people to get bored of my blog. That's why I did that dot and diagonal art but then totally hated it. I was like "Hm.. that's interesting… where's my remover?"

  11. I agree about the DS polishes not being worth the higher price. BUT the old DS polishes were. The holo ones?! I totally lucked out and found 3 of them at a random salon for REGULAR PRICE. they were from like 2009 or something!

    1. I don't think I've seen any of the older DS polishes. Were they like linear holos or just scattered? I would have snatched them up too if I had seen them. Now I want to go look for them at my dusty places.

      1. LINEAR. they are gorgeous. I found ds desire (which goes for over $50 on ebay), so i was super stoked! They had a second one, and when i went back to get it, it was gone ๐Ÿ™ i should have bought all of them! But i just got one of each color they had (3) so i'm happy.
