Okay, so last week was crazy busy, as you probably guessed, judging from how I posted less often than I usually do.
I was preparing to paint the accent wall in my living room! (If you follow me on social media, you know that on Saturday, I painted it green – haha, no shock there, right? It was in Behr Premium Plus Ultra paint in PPU10-7 Lima Green, in case you were wondering. And, although I tried taking photos of it to show you, unfortunately, my smartphone made it look like a completely different colour. I may try with my DSLR later. I’m soooo happy with the shade. It looks even better than the paint chip.)
But, now onto today’s review!
I wore OPI DS Tourmaline for over 5 days straight. (When I was Instagramming, I thought it was 5 days, but apparently it was closer to a week that I wore it!) Even more impressive because it wore for a long time, even though I didn’t wear a base or top coat. (The press release says that you can wear it with or without a base coat. Since I love textured polishes, I tried it without any nail treatments.)
OPI DS Tourmaline is 1 of 2 new shades in the Designer Series line, and it features the Polished Quartz finish, which is very sparkly and has a textured finished.
I found it very challenging to photograph this polish, especially because on the days when I had time to snap photos before heading to work in the morning, the sky was overcast. (As you may know, I haven’t yet invested in studio lighting, so I rely on Mother Nature and my DSLR camera.)
Let me tell you – OPI DS Tourmaline is an incredible nail polish that no photos can do justice! There’s way more sparkle and loads more colours crammed into this bottle than I could capture. Also, the pink is lighter than the magenta you see in my photos. (I posted a couple of photos of it on Instagram, so you can compare how my smartphone’s camera captured the shade.)
