The Designer Series by OPI are some of the most wanted OPIs out there. I’ve had Opulence for a while now but have only used it once, previously. The formula is amazing, the holo is just right, and the colour (a rosy pinkish) is perfect – but for some reason, I just didn’t LOVE it. I always felt when I wore it, it made my hands look too old lady-ish.
I was going through Pinterest last week when I saw a pin for doing a manicure using a coloured base coat and another colour sponged over for a different look. I wanted to try it and this was the ending result. I used a base of Parlez-Vous OPI (which I LOVE) and then used a makeup sponge to dab on the Opulence once the base was semi-dry. I then topped it with Seche Vite. I really liked the finish. I’m not huge on nail art, but this is a technique that can bring new life into older polishes.
