OPI Designer Series Fall 2014 Swatches & Review

Howdy, good to see ya! OPI has brought us two more shades in their Designer Series, formulated with diamond dust, for Fall 2014. They say these two lacquers have a "polished quartz" formula, a semi-matte finish with intense three-dimensional sparkle.  Let's take a look at these two semi-precious stone inspired shades!

DS Titanium is a medium/light charcoal jelly with holographic and iridescent glitters. It does dry down to a satin finish, but I prefer it with a shiny top coat. It was pretty thick, I used three coats here. I could've stopped at two but the charcoal seemed like it should've been darker to me so I used three. The sunlight flattens out the glitter a bit so I showed you a shade picture as well, to show the depth.

DS Tourmaline is a rosy pink jelly with the same holographic and iridescent glitters as the previous shade. Also dries semi-matte, but I used a top coat here. Also quite thick but the color built up nicely in two coats for me. I really like how sparkly it is in the sun.

DS Tourmaline and DS Titanium are available at professional salons, including Beauty Brands, Chatters, Dillard’s, Regis, ULTA and ulta.com for $12.50 ($14.95 CAN) suggested retail for each nail lacquer.

These two shades remind me of Zoya's summer Bubbly collection, the jelly base with the holo/iridescent glitter mix seem very similar to me. I like both of these polishes, but I'm not wowed like I hoped to be. I might try to layer them over similar base colors if I wear them again. What do you think of these DS shades?
