Every fall I look forward to the 2 special nail polishes OPI releases as part of their Designer Series Collection (see last year’s OPI Designer Series HERE). This year we can look forward to two more beauties: DS 48 Charcoal and DS 49 Imperial.OPI ds, OPI designer series, OPI designer series 2015, OPI DS charcoal, OPI DS imperial, OPI imperial, OPI charcoal

In direct sunlight, OPI DS 49 Imperial appears as a bright pink fuchsia, but in lower light and shade, it appears much darker.

OPI DS 49 Imperial also dries with a satin matte finish, but I think looks much brighter and intense with a glossy topcoat (as I show in the swatches above).

OPI Designer Series 2015 should be out now so keep your eyes peeled, because these are two polishes definitely worth collecting.

Until next time,
nail that accent
