OPI DS Magic

ETA: WOW! 1000 followers! You guys are amazing. Thank you so much for reading our blog! :) (And thank you, too, to those of you who subscribe in other ways. :D)

I should, in theory, love this polish but I feel kinda meh on it.

OPI DS Magic

It's big, blue and beautiful... but leaves me lukewarm! Shimmering, metallic, subduedly sparkly and very, very bright. It even has slight purple duochrome going on (click on the pic and look at the sides of the nail). I think I wanted more of the purple duochrome. I think maybe I don't like vibrant metallic blues? It's kind of a mystery as to why this is on my swap/sell pile. Three coats.

So... another month went by. Let's tally up my "earnings" from my exercise: 22 polishes! I totally didn't adhere to my "only buy 20 polishes in September" plan at all. :( I went to an amazing dusty that time forgot and came out with 60 polishes in one go. And then I hauled a bunch of expensive LEs. I mean, it was a real bust, guys. But maybe I'll try to stay within the 22 this month... should I even figure out how much each polish should be worth? I mean, I'm sort of on unofficial low-buy anyway since my 60 polish bender at the dusty...

It's pretty, but I get ya - you want it to be just a little something more. WTG on keeping with your goal of only 20 polishes. I need to go on a no-buy for October, but the new Winter Zoya collection was released, so that's gonna go out the door!!!

60 polishes, wow I can 't even imagine that :)

I have this one and I love this color, its is VERY bright. It kind of scared me in the morning when I woke up, WOW! :)

Maybe OPI Ink or DS Royal is more for you, bot of them are more purpley :)

For what its worth, its pretty on your hands :)

I have found I really do not like bright metallic blues either.. Magic seems to be a supe for SH Laser. When I first got Laser I was hoping to see its duochrome quality transfer from the bottle to my nails, but it did not. I couldn't wait to take it off, and it went straight to my swap list.

I am really into blues, I love it!!!

This is a gorgeous blue. I guess you can't love every polish you put on. I just find it hard to even part with one!

@asami: I don't understand why I don't like it. It's a mystery to me!

@megan: I don't usually cave to Zoya but I might have to for the new collection. Glittery goodness!

@extraH: I think it's just my own problem that I don't like it...

@sarah: thanks!

@Jackie: they were super cheap.... though super cheap is still pretty expensive when multiplied by 60. I have both Ink and Royal -- LOVE Ink, haven't tried Royal yet.

@faerieberry: Yep, I felt the exact same way about Laser too.

@spaceinvaders: I have no complaints about it besides "it doesn't make my heart soar."

@lucy: oh man, I've gotta let go of polishes. There's no room for all of 'em...!
