OPI Designer...de Better! isn't your typical silver foil. It has little copper flakes interspersed. This makes for a stunning and unique finish if you look closely enough. The sparkle on this polish is out of control. If you love silvers or foils but are looking for something a little different and off-beat, then I suggest you snatch this polish up.
The application was good, if a little runny. On the first coat I was really surprised at how sheer the polish was, but it built up to this opacity after only two coats. And it dried lightning fast. The nice thing about this polish is that you get all the pizzazz of glitter without any of the grittiness. This is a big deal for me, because I can't stand that bumpy glitter feeling. But I really, really love this little guy. OPI has been pretty successful lately at making polishes that seem to be unique but are also total collection staples all at the same time. I'm delighted.
Here's my hair after it had been freshly cut, by the way.
Much shorter than I'm used to having it, but it looks nice and less...heavy. I'm sure I'll get used to it. Also, I went to a Halloween party on Saturday sort of unexpectedly and I had no costume. I was wearing what I had worn to work that day (this):
When people asked what I was I told them art deco. No one laughed. This is what happens when I hang around with people other than art nerds. My boyfriend managed to wear like three different costumes over the weekend, which made me feel even lazier.
Anyway, that's all for updates. Opinions on Designer...de Better!? Is it on anyone's list to pick up? If not, it should be ;)
