New OPI DS Tourmaline and DS Titanium

PRESS SAMPLE
 
Hey Dolls
 
I am so excited to share two new OPI Designer Series polishes with you today.  These polishes have a 'polished quartz' formula with semi-precious stone-inspired shades.  They dry to a semi-matte finish and have three-dimensional sparkles.  They are such a fun addition to the Designer Series by OPI.
 
First up is the stunning DS Tourmaline which OPI describes as a shimmery rose color.  How gorgeous are these sparkles?  There are lots of holo sparkles and micro pink glitter in a pink base.  It dries semi-matte and has a typical glitter texture.  I did put a top coat on but you can wear these without for a 3D look. 
 


And this stunner is DS Titanium which has holo sparkles and holo micro glitter in a dark grey base.  Fabulous!  I used three coats and just one layer of top coat so you can still see some texture from the glitter.
 



  These two DS OPI's will be available in September 2014.  Will you be adding either of these to your collections?

Sunset Blvd with Sparkles

Hey Dolls
 
I picked up this pretty orange cream polish by Sonia Kashuk called Sunset Blvd.  This is my first Sonia Kashuk polish and I'm pretty impressed with it.  Orange polish can often need quite a few coats to even out the streakiness, but I only needed two coats of Sunset Blvd.
 

After a few days of wear, I added a Sally Girl polish called Diamonds on the tips.  I know that a lot of people don't like bar glitter, but I have really grown to love it!

Summer Stripes

Hey Dolls
 
Hope your Summer is going fabulously!  I miss blogging and doing my nails so much, but I am outside soaking up with sun with my little Luvies while I can!
 
The three colors I used for this little tape mani are Sinful Colors Thimleberry, Essie Check-up and Sally Hansen Pacific Blue (the old formula!).  I used washi tape to get nice crisp lines and of course a top coat to smooth it all out.

Some Julie G Love

Hey Dolls!
 
I was so excited when someone reached out to me asking if I wanted to do a swap for the Joe Fresh polishes I've been obsessed with sharing lately, because I knew right away which polishes I would ask for in return!  Julie G, without a doubt.  You can't buy them here in Canada, sad face.
 
The lovely Doll that email me is Liz and you can check out her fun blog Rose Vignettes here.  She well and truly spoiled me and sent tons of extra goodies for me.  Thanks so much Liz, you are so sweet!
 
We swapped 5 polishes and she picked out some fabulous ones for me.  I've swatched 3 so far, and love them!
 
First up is Miami Beach, a stunning pinky-coral cream.
 

This pretty pink is called Shoe-A-Holic, it's right up my alley.  This was a one coater!  I'm not sure if I've ever come across a one-coat pink.
 

 
I currently am wearing Dream In Pretty, this gorgeous lilac purple is everything!
