OPI Designer Series Raw Granite Swatch and Review

It's Friday! Woot! I have exciting nail polish plans tomorrow. I'll be joining the Polished Girlz at a local County Fair. Myself and the other volunteers will be using our nail art skills to raise money for Polished Girlz charities. If you're not familiar with Polished Girlz, go check out their website. Alanna, the founder, is an amazing girl.

So no one could have possibly been more excited than me to hear about two new OPI Designer Series polishes!  I hopped on the nail polish addict train after the first car of DS shades had left the station. I swore I'd have my eyes and ears peeled for new DS releases from now until forever. This duo is called DS Raw Granite and both are matte textures with a "mineral like reflection". First up is my fave of the two, DS Lapis. Isn't it gorgeous? It's a deep sapphire with glints of silver and bright blue. This is two coats without topcoat.

The second shade is DS Pewter. It's a charcoal gray base with multi-sized silver glitters. I really like the final product of this one too. Both are slightly different than the Liquid Sands released thus far. DS Pewter would be great for a night out!

Both polishes were on the thick side, but that's to be expected with this finish. They'll be available beginning September 2013 at professional salons, including Beauty Brands, Beauty First, Chatters, Dillard’s, jcp Salons, Pure Beauty, Regis, Trade Secret, ULTA and ulta.com for $12.50 ($14.95 CAN) each suggested retail.

On a side note, I'm having major issues with my camera and skin tone lately. It's like the camera periodically decides to revolt. So I bought a new bulb and I'm not digging the results. *sigh* I suppose I should stick to what works!
