Here’s the second new OPI Designer Series nail polish added to the line – OPI DS Indulgence!
From the promo pictures and the official description, I was expecting this one to be more purple or pink. It actually leans strongly on the red side.
What a beautiful polish – it sparkles like crazy in the sunlight, and because of this, it really lives up to its name. It definitely is a polish that is indulgent!
And I think this would be great to wear for Christmas…Hehe, hey, Christmas in July?
Allow me to tell you more about OPI DS Indulgence!

OPI DS Indulgence Review
This is a ruby-red polish that has a bit of gold throughout. It’s the kind of colour that looks like sizzling fire in the sunlight – very sexy shade!
The press release for this new OPI Designer Series polish said that it was a red-violet, but I don’t really see any violet, and I wore this polish for several days, so I saw it under many lighting conditions.
And in case you’re wondering, while it’s similar to OPI DS Luxurious, Indulgence is definitely much redder than Luxurious.
OPI DS Indulgence has what look like small golden flecks. These flecks catch the light and make the shimmer dance on your nails like hyper glitter that needs to bust a move. 😉
The finish is very smooth – not gritty at all! Plus it’s very easy to remove.
Application & Formula
Applying OPI DS Indulgence is very easy because it glides on effortless and even has a self-levelling formula that helps to make your manicure look good (even if you’ve applied it not as carefully as you should’ve).
The polish is also very pigmented. One coat covers very well, but you’ll get complete opacity after a second coat.
Final Verdict: 8/10
While OPI DS Indulgence is really a stunning polish, I didn’t give it a perfect score because there are lots of shimmery reds with gold on the market. Especially if you wait for Christmas, I’m sure you’ll be able to find something similar.
If I had to choose between OPI DS Indulgence or OPI DS Luxurious, I would go for the latter because the orange with gold seems more special to me.
Were you also surprised to see that OPI DS Indulgence wasn’t a purple as the press release suggested? Do you like DS Indulgence or DS Luxurious better?
