This is one of my fave out of all the DS I have been able to get my hands on (the old one at least).
This color is so attractive. It is pink-reddish (on a darker side) at least that is how I see it. I love the holographic effect along with it!
The application is great of course! It is "that" brush and the compliments most people have given about the brush, is not overrated at all.
I just need two coats to my likings.
I just heart this!

Mundane pink shade, suitable for a no-choice choice, not pale enough to be the Couture it claims to be, not strong enough to be cool. Very boring. Will not repurchase.

OPI's Designer Series Couture is a bronze/peach/pink/coral holographic polish. This color is sort of hard to describe. On my fair skin with slight yellow undertones (which tends to pull orange out of anything with orange in it) the base color is basically a corally bronze with very slight red undertones. It's almost like a really light rusty coral. My description probably isn't very helpful. This is one that, IMO, you have to see on the nail rather than just looking at the bottle. In the bottle it looked like it might be quite orange-y. All that being said, the holographic effect on this one is absolutely stunning. This would be a good entry-to-fall kind of color. The application on this one was flawless - very smooth, no streaking, and opaque at two coats. Drying time was a breeze even without SV. All in all, I would definitely buy this one again.

I discovered this last summer, and have been a loyal fan. I receive compliments EVERY TIME I wear it, from men and women alike. I think it's a great color for most skin tones. It's a happy color in summer, and nice party color for winter. With a little bit of light, you can see different colors in it. It's loud in a very unique way: not something that would put people off, but catches their eye without fail. I've never had to worry about it not working with my outfit either. Despite the fact that it's not a light color per se, it's easy to remove and doesn't stubbornly cling onto the area around cuticles, like what most nail polish tends to do. I WILL buy this color again and use it till my mid 30's!

I swapped my DS Ruby for this colour and was a little horrified initially when it arrived to see that it looked no different in the bottle from Ruby. But when I finally worked up the gumption to try it on my nails, I was in love. DS Couture is an amazing medium dark peach-pink that simply dazzles under sunlight and halogen lighting. I am a big fan of holographic sparkle polishes and with DS Couture on my nails, I simply can't keep my eyes off my hands and feet! Where DS Ruby was far too hot a pink for me to carry off, the generous peach and gold shimmer in DS Couture strike a nice balance between the warm and cool, making this suitable for pretty much any skintone. OPI describe this colour as a "sumptious shimmering rose", which I agree is pretty accurate. It looks absolutely smashing on my NW 35 skintone which is great really because I can't really carry off many pinks without looking like a hooker past my prime. Personally, I think this would look a tad better on warmer-toned ladies, especially if you've got a tan to play up the peachy-bronze tones in this polish. However, this colour is neutral enough so it probably wouldn't be too difficult for cooler-toned girls to pull off either. I'm really starting to like the new Pro-Wide brush, it makes for an amazingly smooth application. I've had DS Couture on my tips and toes now for 5 days with no chipping and only very minimal wear around the edges. The colour is really quite lush so you only need two coats to achieve full perfect coverage. Overall, this is definitely one Designer Series polish you'll want to try. Most colours in the collection are pretty iffy but with this one, it'll definitely be more a hit than a miss. Love it!

Boy is this shiny. It toes the line of too much, but luckily the color is not garish and the shine is more holographic and not at all glittery. I love this shade, and I know it'll be fantastic for Spring and Summer.
FiveZero posted some great pics of Couture- it is a super-shiny warm reddish-pink. Her "zoom" photo is probably the closest to the actual color. I really like this shade and plan on repurchasing after I run out.

I bought this product on a whim, and I'm glad I did. I love the colour and it goes well with my warm skin tone. It is a beautiful classy look for any season.

I'm a bit disappointed with colour, perhaps I've expected too much because of the reviews. It looks very very interesting in the bottle but on my nails it's quite an ordinary pink. Some holographic effect and glitter in some angles but boring - until I see them in the broad daylight. Then they turn incredible, just incredible. So for me, this is a perfect spring/summer polish.

I am not into holographic nail polish at all, but I gave into the OPI Designer Series hype and got myself one DS polish - they're more expensive than OPI's regular line, so I felt I needed to limit myself to one. I ended up picking Couture, thanks to the recommendations of a few ladies on the nail board here, and it is breathtakingly beautiful. The holo is, as the previous reviewer noted, intense, but Couture is still very wearable. It's a mid-tone peachy pink with all kinds of pretty holo bits in it... sounds awful to the holo-averse like myself, but it's really lovely on the nails. I couldn't stop staring at my fingertips - how silly is that! :)

I was really unsure about buying Couture because in the bottle it looked pretty orange and resembled OPI Coral's Reef, which looked horrible on me. But I was very wrong, and am glad I bought it! It's a bright rosey-pink, and reminds me of something that I can't quite put my finger on - it just seems very fresh and "Springish". Of course, like all polishes in this series it has intense holographic shimmer and the great new brush design!
