OPI Designer Series Nail Lacquer in Reserve Review & Some Japanese China

January 28, 2010

Naughty blogger that I am, these photos are actually from weeks ago (when my friend Cathy – yes the same one I visited in Cali – was actually in NY) but I thought you might all enjoy beholding the beauty that is OPI DS Reserve – just one of the many amazing things Nicole got me for Christmas. Check out additional photos (sadly all taken with my iPhone as I wasn’t at home with my usual camera), the full review and some of the most stunning coffee cups I’ve ever laid eyes on after the jump!

The Designer Series by OPI is a line of nail lacquers with a state-of-the-art formula that combines dazzling diamond dust with saturated pigments to give you a nail color that explodes with brilliant almost holographic shimmer.

is a gorgeous, easy-to-wear rosy pink shade that’s just exploding with shimmery bits (yet the texture is completely smooth) and truly a stunner. These photos really don’t showcase the beauty of Reserve as the photos have no flash, but trust me, it’s gorgeous.

And on a completely unrelated note, the day that I did my nails in Reserve I ended up going out to this scrumptious little dessert place called ChikaLicious where they had the most delicate, intricate, all-around stunning china sets that I’ve ever laid eyes on.

All I can say is – I want!

    Justine I've been too lazy to do my nails for the past few weeks.You know I'm usually all about the pink but I LOVE that yellow set, seriously the most gorgeous tea set I've seen to date.

  15. *Jen* Says:

    Tala I saw those shades when I was at Larchmont in Cali (have you had a chance to stop by yet? it's really awesome!) and they're GORGEOUS – especially loved Madd as a Hatter, it's a stunning, unique shade.

  16. *Jen* Says:

    Thanks for the info Tala, I'm def going to try to squeeze in a post, although I've rarely been finding the time to blog lately.

  17. *Jen* Says:

    Lumkeikei unfortunately they don't – the only place I've seen them thus far (near me) is Ulta. Luckily I have wonderful friends who send me them!

  18. *Jen* Says:

    Charlotte they're seriously all beautiful – I have yet to see a DS polish I don't love.

  19. *Jen* Says:

    Thanks All Women Stalker! I wasn't quite sure how I felt about the shade in the bottle, but on the nails it's really a stunner.

  20. *Jen* Says:

    PixyEla thanks for the award!I usually love the pink and the pink teacup is stunning but the yellow one was just complete and utter love for me.

  21. *Jen* Says:

    Thanks Jonesy!

  22. *Jen* Says:

    Tammy I was looking for a similar DS color (light pink) but didn't see one when I was at Ulta. They must have one though! Will keep an eye out for it :).

  23. lumkeikei Says:

    I finally found it at HK's Sephora! The bad news is it is super expensive… $198HKD!!I got one anyway cause the colour is so pretty!

  24. *Jen* Says:

    Lumkeikei I'm jealous that the HK Sephoras carry these!
