OPI DS Raw Granite: OPI DS Lapis & OPI DS Pewter Press Release & Promo Pictures

OPI DS Lapis & OPI DS PewterIf you like blues and greys, keep your rabbit ears up because OPI has something new up their sleeves for the Designer Series line!

In September, OPI DS Raw Granite hits the stores with 2 textured nail polishes: OPI DS Lapis (sapphire) and OPI DS Pewter (silver).

I’m so happy that the textured nail trend is still going strong! (Huge fan here!) 🙂

Both look like colours that are very wearable. Hehe, then again, I would try any colour on my nails!

Between OPI DS Lapis and OPI DS Pewter, I’m most looking forward to OPI DS Lapis because I think it could look like a starry night sky – beautiful!

This is the official press release sent to me by OPI’s PR:

Diamonds are a Nail’s Best Friend!

OPI Launches Two NEW Designer Series

Lacquers featuring DS Raw Granite

This fall, OPI adds DS Raw Granite; two new granite-inspired hues – DS Pewter and DS Lapis – to the Designer Series by OPI collection. Featuring a matte textured finish with mineral-like reflections, each Designer Series Raw Granite lacquer formula offers subtle sheen with a sparkle finish.

DS Pewter, a matte textured metallic with deep silver ore, will launch simultaneously with DS Lapis, a deep sapphire blue with a textured matte finish. Designer Series by OPI offers a mosaic of 11 glistening shades and a high-shine top coat, including these two new stunning hues. DS Pewter and DS Lapis can be used without DS Top Coat to achieve an alternate matte look.

“Diamond-dust gives nails the perfect touch of glamour and can instantly transform any look. These two new shades are inspired by raw granite – the diamond’s edgy cousin and we’re excited to broaden the range of color in the Designer Series line,” said Suzi Weiss-Fischmann, OPI Executive VP & Artistic Director. “These lacquers incorporate rich pigments with brilliant shine, to create a bold yet elegant statement. DS Pewter and DS Lapis are the ideal high-fashion, festive accessory.”

Designer Series by OPI nail lacquer shades each feature OPI’s exclusive ProWide™ Brush for the ultimate in application. DS Raw Granite lacquers should be worn without top coat for a matte finish. DS Pewter and DS Lapis will be available beginning September 2013 at professional salons and spas for $14.95 suggested retail for each nail lacquer.

      Hey Joyce!

      Hehe, for some reason, I could picture you bursting out into a song about nail polishes when you said “I want them…I need them”. 😉

    I can’t get enough of these textured polishes either! I feel like I definitely need both. I think you’re right about lapis being like a starry night, but I’m thinking pewter will look so chic and industrial. Sign me up!

      Hey Tennyoceres!

      Knowing the awesome Liquid Sands that OPI has put out, I’ll bet that Pewter will look like rocks. I can’t wait to see what these look like in person! 🙂

      Way too many dark blue or purple polishes? Is that even possible? Hehehe! 😉

    Oooh, I’m really curious how the metallic finish will look in textured nails!

    FINALLY we’re getting some variety in this trend! I love me some creams, but we need textured holos, chromes, and metallics. It’s high time.

      Hey Fedoraharp!

      Ooooohhh! Textured holos – that sounds incredible! I really hope that they can pull that off. And how about textured multichromes? *Drools*
