Hi, you guys! Happy Tuesday! I always find it hard to get back to the weekday grind after a long weekend, but on the plus side, we're already one day closer to the weekend heh. :-)
Today, I'm really excited to have one of the two new OPI Designer Series Raw Granite polishes to share with you. DS Lapis is a dark sapphire blue loaded with small silver and blue glitters that dries down to a sparkling, matte textured finish.
The formula was a little thick and goopy for me, which is very uncharacteristic of OPI. I had a little bit of trouble getting clean lines, so I would definitely add a few drops of thinner before using it again. Each coat did come out nicely pigmented, with the glitters distributing evenly. And I needed just the standard two coats for total coverage. The final result is worth the slightly tricky application though. It's a rich and striking color on the nails! And since I frequently get asked about dark blues, I'm happy to report that I had no staining. :-)
You can find DS Lapis at your local nail salons and beauty stores such as Ulta and Dillard's for a retail price of $12.50 for 0.5 fl oz.
