Another winner from the DS collection. Same smooth, lovely application as the other holo DS polishes in my collection. Opaque in 2 coats and super easy to work with and clean up. Really lovely stuff.The color is a red-based winey plum. Maybe...red-violet from my 1972 box of Crayolas. The aforementioned holo particles provide a lot of depth and dimension without being glittery or chunky. The holo itself is weak, not super rainbow, kind of a personal party on your nails, not something people can necessarily see from an appropriate personal-space distance, therefore I totally got away with it at work. This is one of the few purples that look well against my yellow based skin tone. continued >>
One of my faves. This is Extravagance in a bottle. It performs best on sunny days where where every single gorgeous holo paticle can light up in all of its glory.
This is a berry purple shade that is, to me, "safe fo work" with a scattered holo effect that is pure perection in 2 coats. It is my first holo by OPI and a treasured fave. If you see it, please pick it up! You wont regret it for one moment.
I find it wears okay, but dont go by me, as I change my polish every 3 days or so.
This deep purply-magenta polish is so pretty and classy-looking! I found application effortless (I used two coats), and it looked so flattering and sophisticated on my hands...I just wanted to wear nice jewelry the whole time I was wearing it to complement the beauty of it! Wear was fine, but I change my polish every two days or so. I paid $8.50 at a local beauty supply, so it was about $3 more than what I usually pay for a polish, so it feels like a splurge, but definitely a worthwhile splurge. I would buy it again if needed.
Although I love the color, it stained my nails, even with two bc's
This is sheer excellence in a bottle! Purple is my favorite color but it's hard to find a nail polish that doesn't pull too cool against my warm-toned skin. This is not at all a problem with Extravagance. Two coats achieve complete opacity with the prettiest holo effect. I can't even begin to describe the colors of the sparkle. Love it! It does show tip wear a bit more easily than other OPI nail polish but still, I can wear it for a week and it'd still look good so I don't mind.
I usually hate metallic and/or glittery polishes. They look beautiful in the bottle but once they're on my nails, something gets lost. ANYWAY, this is not the case with the OPI Designer Series polished AT ALL. I cannot put into words how beautiful they are, this one especially. It's unlike any holographic polish I have ever tried. And they only look better on the nail. The only downside is that they're $12.50, versus the usual $8. But it's totally worth it!
I am giving this polish 5 lippies even though I don't particularly like it, but that's because I don't like holo polishes. This color has everything you could possibly want in a polish, easy application, opacity in 1-2 coats, gorgeous glitter and the color is very luxurious. IMO a must have for any holo fan!
This was great! It has a beautiful color that sparkles without looking cheap especially in sunlight. I love it!
Amazing holographic polish! The base colour is a deep pinkish purple. The texture is smooth (not gritty like normal glitter) but the holographic shimmer is amazing! It sparkles pink and silver in direct light - I can't stop looking at my hands on the wheel as I'm driving - bad, I know. Indoors the shimmer isn't as obvious, but the base colour remains a lovely fuschia/purple. This is my favourite of the DS polishes so far (I have four at the moment). If you a fan of purple, this is a must-have! Also great if you like deep pink colours but don't want to go too dark and vampy. This would be fine for work.
The coverage is very good - two coats only for bottle colour on the nail. The wear is great, as with all OPI polishes. The texture is lovely and smooth, no glitter particles in it, which also makes it easy to remove. I hate trying to scrub off the glitter bits in my usual glitter polishes, but this is a breeze!
Buy again - definitely! And I'm going to try to track down all the other Designer Series colours - shame they are so hard to find! Kind of expensive, but completely worth the price!
By far one of my favorite polishes. I have never worn this without having at least 3 people a day tell me how pretty it is. I'm kind of hard on my hands and this polish wears well, better than most of the other OPI polishes I own. I admit I was a little shocked when I got to the register and realized it was 12.50 instead of the normal 8.50, but totally worth it. I wish I could find the rest of the DS line, but they are always sold out!
