Pretty In Purple
Hey Nail Enthusiasts!
I recently picked up this pretty color by
OPI – DS Extravagance
(the DS stands for Designer Series) and I had to share!
But first the quirky part is how i found this striking color.
Well.. a few weeks ago when the entire northeast was instructed by local officials to start preparing for storm “Nemo” I knew I had to go shopping. Like most, I was thinking… YES!! An unexpected 4 DAY WEEKEND Wooo Hooo!! So in preparations for this snowpocalypse I had to stock up on some essentials.
Most hit the grocery stores.. cleaning out the shelves. I on the other hand had a much better agenda before hitting the grocery store (which was actually the morning of the storm) 😉
I left work a little early on Wednesday.. of course my excuse was that I had to “Prepare to Prepare For The Storm. 😉
I figured.. if I was gonna be stuck in the house for 4 days… why not go on a nail painting binge! So, that’s what I did.. I ended up buying about 6 different nail polishes. My boyfriend thought I was crazy… he said.. what are you gonna do? Paint each nail a different color?.. Of course my reply was “Yeah! Why Not? That’s a Great Idea and when I’m done with my nails I’ll paint yours!” Hindsight, I think he was more concerned with being asphyxiated by the smell!! But at the end of it all he survived and I renewed my passion for painting! A WIN, WIN in my book!
So there you have it. My little adventure prior to Storm Nemo. When everyone else was buying water, canned goods & bread.. I was stocking up on polishes. A girl can never have enough polishes!
So my review on this snazzy color
OPI – DS Extravagance
5 Stars ★★★★★
It’s a 2 coat polish and can easily be worn with or without a top coat. This time I actually used my OPI- Drip Dry Lacquer Drying Drops instead of my dry fast polish and they look great. I painted my thumb with Seche Vite just to see how it would look and it looks great too… it gives it a more glossy finish almost appearing like jelly.
This time i preferred the Drops to the dry fast polish just cause I didn’t want that jelly look, but either way is great!
I plan on painting a black tip next. I think that would look really sharp. If it turns out how i’m hoping I’ll post it on my next blog.
Happy Painting All!!
