OPI DS Magic – Swatches
See? This is my mother through and through – do not pass $2 shop nail polishes, go straight to OPI DS and Layla. 😀
I love it.
Love this polish, too.
OPI’s Designer Series is their pricier end polishes (and here in NZ that’s saying something – the regular OPI’s retail for $27ish, and the Designer Series are usually a good $10 more than that) – and they used to be holographic, but now are usually glass flecked or a different finish. Magic is a blue-purple duochrome, with electric blue glass fleck (little balls, not flakies! And yes, I realise how that sounds, stop snigger ok?!)
These swatches are three coats, Revlon Colourstay base coat, and L’Oreal Quick Dry top coat. Magic is moderately sheer, though almost all visible nail line is gone in two coats, but it does need the third to reach bottle colour. Don’t skip the base coat, either. My mother doesn’t have base coat… so after using this polish she now has little blue berries for finger nails. heh heh heh. You’ve been warned… though, seriously, don’t use blue/green/purple colours without a base coat, you’re asking for trouble 😀
I tried to capture some of the purple flash, but I couldn’t do it. Which is a shame, because it’s very obvious in real life. The electric blue is definitely predominant, but the purple is there every time you flick your hand.
Full hand shot
I really like this colour! My favourite colour in the whole world is electric blue, and my fav nail polish colour is purple, so this is a complete win as far as I’m concerned. It is quite in-your-face colour, certainly not shy and retiring. 🙂
