I really do wish it was Sunday because that’s definitely my fun day. Why can’t I just win the lottery and forget about work…is that really too much to ask? Pffft! I feel so sluggish today, but that seems to be pretty normal for Mondays so now I have to pump myself up so that I can get to the gym tonight. I loaded up my ipod with a bunch of new songs (Get Lucky, Blurred Lines, Treasure among others!) last night and packed my gym bag so I can just go there directly from work. I know that if I get home, I’m going to start doing stuff and then I’m going to be too lazy to do anything. Hopefully I won’t be too sore tomorrow since I’m sure my body is going to be thinking: Whatchu doin’ fool?! I also nubbinized my nails yesterday so I’ll be giving my hands an nails a break while they grow back out. I do have a lot of swatches and posts lined up, so don’t worry…you can breathe…I will be around to regale you with nail polish! Yep, I know I’m much more important in my own head. So today I have these two really fantastic polishes to share with you that are a new addition to the OPI Designer Series line: OPI DS Raw Granite for Fall 2013 polishes are going to blow you away!
OPI DS Lapis was my favorite of the two. Look at how complex and amazing it looks! The formula was flawless: thick but easy to control, so “different looking” and a one coater! I was in love with the way it looked in its natural matte finish, but look at it with a coat of Seche:
Next up is OPI DS Pewter. When I first looked at this one, I wasn’t that excited but man did I change my mind once I saw this beauty in the sun. It sparkled like a mofo. The formula on this one was also great and it looked great with two thin coats. Of course I couldn’t resist topcoating it after the awesome way that Lapis looked.
The two Designer Series offerings for this year are really gorgeous. Even though they have a liquid sand-type finish, they are not very rough feeling in case that bugs you. While I love the love of both polishes without topcoat, in my opinion, they really come to life with a nice and shiny coat of Seche Vite. What do you think of these polishes? According to OPI, DS Raw Granite lacquers should be worn without top coat for a matte finish. DS Pewter and DS Lapis will be available beginning September 2013 at professional salons, including Beauty Brands, Beauty First, Chatters, Dillard’s, JCP Salons, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, ULTA and ulta.com for $12.50 ($14.95 CAN) suggested retail for each nail lacquer.
