OPI Designer Series 2013 Lapis and Pewter Review and Swatches

2 new Designer Series from OPI.  These have a matte textured finish.
Pewter 3 coats, no topcoat.

3 coats, no topcoat.

With topcoat.Pewter was a little thick, but was very easy to apply.  The glitter went on evenly and smoothly with 1 swipe.

Fast drying.  Looked really good at 2 coats but applied 3 anyway.

Lapis, 2 coats no topcoat.

2 coats no topcoat.  You can see up close that the texture is not like the Liquid Sand polishes, but more subtle.

2 coats with topcoat.  Fine silver and blue glitter in a blue base.  

At first glance of the bottle I thought it was a deep purple but it is a pretty blue! For me this had a pretty thick formula which made it difficult to apply. I guess it makes up for it with opacity, only needing 2 coats.  

The matte finish just didn't really do it for me, I liked both the colors with topcoat more. I guess I am just a shiny girl!  

What do you think of the latest Designer Series colors? The DS shades will run you $12.50 at your authorized OPI stores.

Sent to me for review.
