OPI Designer Series Shades for 2012

Hi there! Today I have the two new Designer Series shades from OPI for 2012. These are formulated with diamond dust and are a few bucks more than regular OPI shades. In the past they were primarily holographic but in the last few years the releases in the DS range are mostly glittery. The two new shades are foily, glitzy, glowy and fabulous.

Luxurious is a sunshine orange glowy bomb of hotness. It reminds me of China Glaze Riveting from the Hunger Games collection, but this is slightly warmer and more red. This applies like a dream and it's really an unbelievably gorgeous shade. I am UBER into oranges this year and this is like my fantasy polish come to life. Two coats.

Indulgence is in the same league as Luxurious, this time in autumn apple red with gold. The base is on the cool side but the firey gold glitz warms it up. The shimmery flecks really bogart this photo, but in person it perfectly compliments the red base. Seriously perfect formula. Two coats.

I can't explain how freaking hot these are. I am in love with both of them. By far the best DS polishes released in YEARS. Do you have them? If not, do you want them? If not, what's wrong with you?! They are unbelievably awesome.

P.S. The winner of my Misa Wanderlust giveaway has been randomly selected and contacted. Congratulations!!

  5. Both of them are gorgeous. Why I don't get any of them? I am reluctant to spend USD 50.00 for 1 bottle of nailpolish - that's what they will cost in Switzerland and will be released in November only (according to the information I could find so far) :-(

    1. I would be happy to try and get them from my eBay retailer who is reputable. She was selling these for $9 each. I have never mailed to Switzerland but i would be happy to try unless you are one of the countries in Europe I hear of that say no cosmetics unless they are in original box packaging. These polishes did not come with an original box. They were only shipped to retailers in OPI cases of 8 polishes per box.

  8. I have both of these and love, love them. I purchased them off evil bay from a reputable dealer I know and purchase from - I only paid $9 each with free ship. They are more than worth $9 to me. I agree that Lux looks on first look to be too much like Riveting - but it's much more complex and not as orange - it's deeper like it has a touch of brown in it..and the gold foil parts in it remind me a bit of the Zoya Sunshine collection for summer 2011. The red one when you stroke it on white paper gives up a real raspberry color base in it. It's not going to read like any other real red at all.
