I got OPI Designer...De Better and OPI Rainbow Connection in the post this morning, both from the upcoming Muppets collection, which is being released as OPI's Christmas holiday collection. I LOVE nail mail, especially when its this good! Today I am going to show you Designer De Better on its own, and tomorrow I'm going to show you Rainbow Connection layered over this, its sooooo shiny, don't miss that one!
OPI Designer...De Better has a foil like metallic finish that is just luscious! If you look closely there are tiny micro copper and pink pieces happily floating around in a sea of shiny silver base, giving the overall colour effect of a pale champagne colour, very elegant and pretty.
On the nail the application was flawless, I have read others say it is a little sheer but I only used three coats over a base coat, and had no problems. The pro wide brush made life easy (I DO love the OPI brushes!) and the dry time was good. I love the colour and finish of this, in sunlight it is really bright and eye-catching, and even indoors in subdued lighting it was still shiny and reflective. I don't have another polish quite like this in my collection, so its definitely a keeper, and it completely fits in with a Christmas collection, I can see me wearing it quite a lot over the Christmas holidays.
The collection will be available in the UK around mid October and can be purchased from www.lenawhite.co.uk for the retail price of £10.50 each. There are 12 in the collection, 6 glitters, and 6 colours. Will I be buying any others from this collection? You bet I will, just watch this space, and don't forget to check out tomorrows second Muppets post featuring Rainbow Connection.
