OPI DS Classic

by 9:40 AM 10 comments
This is one of the many, many polishes that the very awesome Jess sent me over just before Christmas. I have never seen any OPI Designer Series shades for sale here is Australia (If anyone has, please let me know where!) so I was quite excited by the chance to get my paws on some to call my very own.

This one didn't excite me all that much in the bottle, I have never been a fan of neutral colours because really, who wants to wear a brown-tan-cream when you can be wearing hot pink, tomato red, aqua, tangerine or all of them at once?

I was so wrong about this polish. I love it to death. It's my new favourite "work appropriate" colour now. I wore it to my performance review and it went well. I wore it to meetings and they went well so I have come to the somewhat obvious conclusion that this polish has magical powers and I should wear it when I want things to go my way.

I took a heap of photos, some in the sun, some out. Prepare yourself for neutral awesomesauce!

This one is a bit sheer, I think it was a four coater, but being a holo, it dries so quickly, so no real complaints there.

What do you think? What's your favourite shade to wear for getting what you want?

I am super excited, I get to go pick up my new camera today. I am definitely going to be poor after paying for it, so that will make me sad, but for now I am just really super duper excited. So expect lots of picture spam to come up!

That's it from me today.

Be awesome to each other.
