OPI DS Temptation

I was still in a glitter mood so I decided that I couldn't wait any longer and really needed to try out DS Temptation.  As someone once said, 'I can resist anything except temptation', my sentiments exactly!  This is a lovely polish, its not the holographic finish that everyone has come to expect from the Designer Series but it is gorgeous nonetheless.  It has mutli colours of predominantly purple with magenta and silver tiny glitter particles suspended in a blue purple base.  The overall effect is stunning and one of those which I can't keep from looking at my nails, especially when the light catches them and they are sparkling away like something magical.

It did dry a little rough, and I needed to put a couple of generous layers of top coat on, but nothing bad for a glitter.  The formula was fine, not at all goopy and application was a breeze.  I applied three thin coats but I could have gotten away with two generous ones, but having said that if the polish does thicken up over time as polishes tend to do, then two coats would be fine.

So overall I do love this polish, but is it special enough to warrant the higher price tag that the DS series demands?  In my honest opinion, no it isn't but it is still a beautiful polish and one I'm glad I have.  If I knew before I bought it what I know now would I still have bought it?  Hell yes!  On with the pics (which as usual are click-able) sit back, relax and enjoy the awesome purple prettiness :)
