This Fall, OPI is releasing 2 new Designer Series shades and although I am still dying for more of their epic holographics, that feeling completely faded away with the first strokes of color.
DS Luxurious (DS 043) is as bold as orange could be. Probably so sparkly and intense that my eyes could burn! Red based orange literally packed with gold shimmer, if you loved China Glaze Riveting from the Hunger Games, Luxurious was made for you. Yes, they are close but yes you do need both. Luxurious is a bit darker and redder but also contains much more shimmer. I absolutely love it. I mean, just look!
DS Indulgence (DS 042) is the most intense, saturated and rich red shimmer. The amount of gold specks in it is ridiculously crazy and the sparkle and glow on your nails is unheard of. If you own Dior Apparat from the Holiday 2011 Les Rouges Or, the base color is very close even though the finish can't compare.
Formula was fantastic, self levelling and easy to work with, requiring 2 coats for full opacity.
I'm completely in love. I simply find them perfect and even if I'm not so sure that the amount of shimmer justifies the price increase between them and the regular releases, I really couldn't care less!
