OPI DS Pewter

Hi, you guys! Hope your week is going well! :-)

Today, I've got the second of the two new OPI Designer Series Raw Granite polishes to show you. DS Pewter is a dark pewter gray loaded with tons of small and slightly larger silver glitters that dries down to a sparkling, matte textured finish.






The formula is a little thinner than Lapis's, so it's much easier to control. The glitters build up nicely on the nails with each stroke. From a distance, the density of the silver glitters makes the overall polish look a little lighter than you may expect from the dark gray base. For the swatches, I did one thin coat to mark my edges and then one medium coat to fill everything in. This is another swoon-worthy beauty, reminding me of a galaxy full of twinkling stars. :-)

You can find DS Pewter 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.

  2. I really think I need this one! I thought I needed the blue one, but it looks like it's really close to Zoya Sunshine.

    1. I'm glad you like this one, Essie! :) As for Lapis vs Sunshine, I pulled out my Sunshine for a comparison. So they are both dark blue, but they look different enough to own both IMHO. The base colors are different, with Lapis pulling in more purple/indigo, while Sunshine is more muted denim. The difference is hard to capture on camera, but it's definitely there in person. For me, they are quite different because I have a strong preference for one and not the other. That being said, if you aren't as crazily into blue as I am and just want a dark blue texture, perhaps either would work and you don't need both. Hope that helps and I'm not just rambling lol. :-)

    2. LOL. I love blue polish. I saw a comparison and they looked exactly the same. But I probably shouldn't base my decision on one comparison:) I'll take your word for it. We shall see. I just know I am going to get Pewter.

  10. Hi Yun, very elegant and beautiful!!! Once more Opi has released two stunners as part of their DS Series and I frankly could not decide on a favorite - well if push comes to shove I would go for the blue ;-)

    1. I love both as well. I hope I would never have to pick between the two (such an unpleasant thought!), but if it came down to it, the blue edges out the black just a bit for me too. :)

  11. I kind of like the asphalt vibes I get from this LOL

  12. It looks lovely. How close it is to China Glaze Some Like It Haute, Do you know?

    1. I don't have Some Like It Haute, but I took a look at swatches. It seems to me that they're pretty similar. The biggest differences are that Pewter is a texture polish, and also Haute has silver holographic glitters while Pewter's are just silver reflective glitters. Hope that helps! :)
