Silver Cap Sunday: OPI DS Extravagance

Hey all! Sorry for the delay in my first Silver Cap Sunday, hopefully it was worth the wait! Today I'd like to share with you OPI DS Extravagance.


DS Extravagance is a delicious magenta polish with scattered holo. Unlike the other holo Designer Series polishes I've tried, Extravagance is a little tricky to apply. To say it's too thick isn't accurate, but it's a little... gloopy? Normally I'd blame it on old polish, but this bottle is brand new. It went a little lumpy in areas and I had some noticeable brush strokes. I believe adding some thinner will probably help, but I haven't experimented yet. I also noticed that adding a topcoat to Extravagance dulled the holo a bit, so I opted to not wear one for these photos. I reached bottle opacity in two even coats.


Would you like to be involved in deciding what I'll share next for Silver Cap Sundays? Or would you prefer to be surprised? I've been toying with the idea of adding a poll, but I wanted to get your opinion on the matter :)

    Listen, I've told you once, I'll tell you a thousand times... IDGAF. I do not have all day to sit around on my ass making sure every damn swatch I do is to your liking. Maybe you don't have a job or a life or other hobbies, but I do. I frankly don't give a shit if my nails are not up to your standards, if I have a sloppy manicure, I have a sloppy manicure, so what? Get over it. Why on Earth are my nails so important to you? I see you're still being a big girl here and posting anonymously, congrats on being a giant coward. Do you want a high five for how awesome you are at judging other people over the internet or something? The only thing you deserve is a "bitch, please!". You know what I do when I don't like something? I don't look at it! It's really not that hard. Please, grow the fuck up.
