If you like blues and greys, keep your rabbit ears up because OPI has something new up their sleeves for the Designer Series line!
I’m so happy that the textured nail trend is still going strong! (Huge fan here!) 🙂
Both look like colours that are very wearable. Hehe, then again, I would try any colour on my nails!
Between OPI DS Lapis and OPI DS Pewter, I’m most looking forward to OPI DS Lapis because I think it could look like a starry night sky – beautiful!
This is the official press release sent to me by OPI’s PR:
Diamonds are a Nail’s Best Friend!
OPI Launches Two NEW Designer Series
Lacquers featuring DS Raw Granite
This fall, OPI adds DS Raw Granite; two new granite-inspired hues – DS Pewter and DS Lapis – to the Designer Series by OPI collection. Featuring a matte textured finish with mineral-like reflections, each Designer Series Raw Granite lacquer formula offers subtle sheen with a sparkle finish.
DS Pewter, a matte textured metallic with deep silver ore, will launch simultaneously with DS Lapis, a deep sapphire blue with a textured matte finish. Designer Series by OPI offers a mosaic of 11 glistening shades and a high-shine top coat, including these two new stunning hues. DS Pewter and DS Lapis can be used without DS Top Coat to achieve an alternate matte look.
“Diamond-dust gives nails the perfect touch of glamour and can instantly transform any look. These two new shades are inspired by raw granite – the diamond’s edgy cousin and we’re excited to broaden the range of color in the Designer Series line,” said Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “These lacquers incorporate rich pigments with brilliant shine, to create a bold yet elegant statement. DS Pewter and DS Lapis are the ideal high-fashion, festive accessory.”
Designer Series by OPI nail lacquer shades each feature OPI’s exclusive ProWide™ Brush for the ultimate in application. DS Raw Granite lacquers should be worn without top coat for a matte finish. DS Pewter and DS Lapis will be available beginning September 2013 at professional salons and spas for $14.95 suggested retail for each nail lacquer.
