OPI: DS Extravagance

Hi lovelies!

I apologize for not posting yesterday. Jayo and I have decided to reduce the number of weekly posts because of our crazy schedules. Starting this week, I will be having intensive classes from 6.30pm to 9.30pm on Mondays to Wednesdays for three weeks - all these on top of my regular classes! I don't know how I will survive the next three weeks. Urgh. I will probably go around for my classes like a zombie. @_@

Anyway, if you have been following me on twitter, you would have known that I've given up trying to have nice long nails. I don't know about you but I seem to type a lot slower because the nails keep getting into my way! Since I was too lazy to use my file to take down the length, I clipped my nails - only to realize I've clipped them too short. So... say hello to my new nubbins!


Oh wait, they don't look that short today. Ah wells, they were a little stubbier a few days ago.

Because it is still Chinese New Year, I decided to stick to brighter colors and picked OPI DS Extravagance.

Extravagance is an incredibly stunning deep raspberry with a scattered holographic effect. Unfortunately, the sun wasn't out today so I was unable to capture the holographic sparkles. If you look closely, you can see flashes of color peeking out from the nails and the bottle. What's more, if you just angle your nails slightly, you will be able to see a slight golden flash where the light hits the nail, very subtly lighting up that area. Freaking gorgeous!



Here's a macro bottle shot to show you the hol-iness:


What do you think of Extravagance? What are your favorite DS-es?

xoxo,

  4. It's my first (and only) DS too! I'd been eyeing it for quite a while before I finally caved it. I'm so glad I bought it! It's really pretty! <3 
    I wish they still have the old DS polishes - I'm really lemming Glamour so hard! :(

  8. I just purchased Extravagance and Classic. I love the both of them honestly and ive been looking up pictures to drool at prior to this, because i thought i would never see these babies in stores lol. Buuut for some reason i was surprised by the face that they are both scattered holos....I currently own Milani 3d effects in most of the colors except for Gold and Green I think currently because neither of the two DS's I just bought are linear holos, Milani might have might vote for now. They aren't linear either but you can kinda see holo flakies lol

  9. I know what you mean! The older DS-es are really gorgeous linear holos! My fav has to be DS Glamour. I drool over the swatches all the time! Such a pity that they discontinued it :(
    The holo is Extravagance is really a lot more subtle as compared to the Milanis but I quite like the richness of this color ^_^ 
    Will have to try the Milanis for myself some day though! :D
