OPI ~ DS Radiance

OPI ~ DS Radiance
Metallic silver shimmer

This mani ended up completely different than I had in mind! I started out with picking two Essence polishes I wanted to use for double stamping. Then I looked for a base colour and ended up with OPI’s DS Radiance which is the most beautiful silver shimmer ever! It’s easy to work with and is almost a one coater if you’re careful with application. I used two coats out of habit and because that’s how I roll. Drying time is good.

When that was dry I changed my mind about the double stamping. I stamped with a metallic purple from El Corazón’s Kaleidoscope collection: Number 14.

Here’s my final mani:

It was super blingy, and made my camera freak out a little bit!

Here are the pretty polishes.

I have a love/hate relationship with OPI. I often find them over hyped, and not always of the desired quality. DS Radiance is definitely on the love-list. It’s such a great polish!

Number of coats: 2 (1 would have been enough)
Drying time: Good
Finish: Shimmer, shimmer, shimmer!
Overall impression: This is by far my favourite silver shimmer, I love everything about it!
Buy again: Yes I would!
