Here are the latest OPI DS polishes for Fall 2011, two glitters in red (Bold) and purple (Temptation).
Bold is a pale silvery pink glitter in a red base. The base is darkly tinted so it builds up nicely on its own. While this polish is OK, I’m not really thrilled about it.
Temptation is a deep purple glitter with specks of blue and silver in a blue base. I found this to be the more appealing of the two since I’m a sucker for purples.
Apologies for the non-existent cleanup – that glitter did not want to budge from my skin. That was a turnoff. Maybe I was just having a bad polish day, but I couldn’t for the life of me get a clean gap. Although these colors are OK, I don’t have too much to say about them. The glitter was very gritty and needs about 2+ layers of topcoat to even out.
I purchased these up from Ricky’s (an NYC beauty retailer) for $9.99 a bottle. What are your impressions of this new DS series – will you skip them or scoop them up?

Jewelry, art, music… and makeup! For me, these are all natural ways of expressing myself. The face is a canvas waiting to be enhanced, just like a blank sheet of sterling silver or clay. Here you’ll find an archive of my makeup looks and tutorials. For about 2 years I did my best to never repeat the same makeup (!!), so as you can imagine there are quite a few! I’m happy to answer any questions about how I created a look, product recommendations, etc.
From time to time I have makeup sales, which will also be posted here.
