This year's Designer Series collection features two gorgeous gems: DS Tourmaline and DS Titanium. As always with Designer Series shades, the more sparkle, the better! This collection features a 3D glitter effect that dries semi-matte for a "diamond in the rough" kind of look. I really miss the old holographic shades that once made up the DS collection, but these glitters are still very pretty.
DS Titanium | This is a blue-toned pewter that is made up of a sheer grey base with large iridescent glitter and signature diamond dust. I like this one, but I think opacity could have been a little better. This was already 3 coats and I can see some bald spots here and there. However, Titanium is still a great shade and I'm wondering if it would look better over a black creme base!
DS Tourmaline | My favourite of the two, I fell in love with the way the light hit this shade! This is a bright pink jelly with iridescent glitter and diamond dust. The glitter was not as chunky in this one and everything just looks smoother than Titanium. I am still not a huge fan of the jelly base and wish it were creme, but I think a third coat would do the trick.
- Great base colours
- Very sparkly
- Jelly base too sheer
- Glitter chunky/rough on nail
What do you guys think of jelly finishes?
