OPI DS Magic


      Today on the blog I have for you OPI's DS Magic. I picked this beauty up at Ulta about a month ago for $11. So far out of the 3 that I own of the DS series I have to say this is my favorite. I love a good sparkly blue nail polish and this one is all that and more. I swear the more I look at it the more shades of blue I seem to find.

     Application of DS magic was smooth and easy. I was a little surprised at how sheer the first coat went on and was a little worried that it might need 3 for full opacity. Fortunately the second coat covered in a deep rich layer. I only needed slight clean up with this as there was no pooling at the cuticles what so ever.

     Just look at that beautiful deep blue with light blue, dark blue, blurple, and a little purple thrown in. This is 2 coats plus top coat in direct sunlight. Anyone want to see a macro shot?

     I cant get over how pretty this color is! (Or how nicely my pictures came out this time to be honest. Hooray for sunny days finally!) It has rained here almost non stop for the last month so taking good polish pictures has been nearly impossible.
    
     Speaking of all the rain we've had here in Minnesota lately, I decided to add a little stamping to this. I went for a blue sky with a silver rain clouds kind of feel. Using Zoya Trixie and plate BM-222. The results were a subtle stamp that was very very hard to photograph. I ended up having to stick my hand under the leaves of my lilac bush to take away some of the glare.



     So what do you think of this color? Is it one you can see yourself wearing? Id love to hear if you have a favorite from the DS Series too.

      Thanks for checking out my post and as always comments are welcome, in fact they are encouraged! =)
