NOTW: OPI silver & taupe

Let’s start off this week with a nail polish post shall we? It features one of my favorite nail polishes: OPI’s Designer… De Better from the limited edition Muppets collection from a few years ago. It’s a gorgeous shimmery shade which I complemented with another OPI polish with a similar effect.

Designer… De Better is a shimmery silver shade with red sparkle. The darker polish is OPI’s The World is Not Enough from their limited edition James Bond collection which was out when Skyfall was released. This second OPI polish follows a similar idea, but this is a shimmery taupe shade with red sparkle (which was hard to capture on camera due to the shine). Rather than for glittery nails I went with shiny nails this time around. I layered both nail polishes over 2 coats of Catrice’s Discreet (also LE), as both polishes take too many coats to be fully opaque.

Here’s what I did:

– Trind nail balsam to moisturize

– Trind nail hardener as a base coat

– Catrice Discreet (LE) (2 coats)

– Alternating OPI Designer… De Better and OPI The World is Not Enough (both LE)

– Sally Hansen Instadry topcoat

In the close ups below you can see the red sparkle in The World is Not Enough a bit better.

What are you wearing on your nails?
