OPI DS Luxurious Swatches and Staining
Friday, April 19, 2013
Today I have another gorgeous polish to show you! This is OPI DS Luxurious. I didn't buy this polish for a long time since it looks so similar to China Glaze Riveting, which is one of my favorites. Orange is such a fun color for spring and summer so I finally bit the bullet and bought Luxurious, and let me start by saying, it's very different from Riveting!
DS Luxurious is a beautiful fiery red-orange loaded with incredibly sparkly gold shimmer. The formula was easy to use, smooth and opaque in two coats, however, I did have one issue with Luxurious. Once I removed this polish my nails were stained red something fierce. It almost looked like I was still wearing a coral colored polish on my nails. I occasionally have issues with staining, so I always wear a good base coat but it did nothing for this polish. My nails have never been so stained and I'm hesitant to wear Luxurious again.
While Luxurious is extremely gorgeous, I don't think I can justify the staining. China Glaze Riveting is quite similar (although it has more of a glass fleck finish rather than shimmer) and doesn't stain, so I will probably forgo Luxurious in the future.
Have you had horrible staining with Luxurious or another gorgeous polish? Do you keep wearing the polish or swap it out for something similar?
