OPI DS Titanium

Every Fall, OPI releases two new DS (Designer Series) polishes, and today I have one of them to share with you! This year, OPI is actually introducing a new Polished Quartz formula, which features a semi-matte finish and 3D glitter. OPI's DS Titanium* ($14.95 CAD) will be available September 3rd 2014, but I have a sneak peak of this gorgeous polish. OPI's DS shades are formulated with diamond dust, and they've been a long-time favourite formula of mine. These shades can be worn alone for a semi-matte finish, but I find it more fun with a shiny finish, so my swatches are shown with a top coat!

“Jewelry has the power to transform a simple dress or tee shirt into a major fashion statement,” remarks Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Co-Founder & Brand Ambassador. “These two new Designer Series shades create the eye-catching look of semi-precious jewels on your nails. Inspired by polished quartz, DS Tourmaline and DS Titanium instantly add glamour, thanks to the highly-pigmented formula and intense diamond-dust sparkle.”

OPI DS Titanium is a gorgeous deep silver/grey base with multi-coloured glitter pieces. The glitter is primarily silver, green, and yellow/gold, but there are other shades mixed in there as well. The glitter looks incredible in natural lighting, it really does have a 3D effect! The formula of DS Titanium is somewhat sheer, so I did use three coats for an opaque finish. This polish dries to an almost smooth finish, but it is still a little bit rough to the touch due to the heavy concentration of glitter.

I do miss the formulation of the old school DS Shades like DS Classic, that were super smooth and almost holographic. I do feel as though OPI's DS line is now just mostly standard glitter polishes - still very, very pretty, but nothing vastly different from what you would find in their permanent line or limited edition collections throughout the year. What happened to the old DS formula OPI?

OPI's DS Titanium is a fun glittery silver/grey polish that's sure to bring some attention to your nails. OPI is also launching DS Tourmaline, which looks like a pretty glittery pink, which I'll also be sharing with you this week! Have you tried any of OPI's DS polishes before? Do you remember the old DS formula that I loved so much?
