OPI DS Desire. Also: Bjork

Today was a particularly bright and sunny day... do you ever feel like a sunny day would be wasted if you didn't wear a holographic polish? That was how I felt today. Especially during the winter, when sunshine is at a premium. So today I have OPI Designer Series Desire for you. It's beauty of a holographic polish with a milk chocolate (mmm, chocolate...) base. What you see here is 3 coats of Desire, in direct sunlight. Enjoy!

And a good bottle shot- holographic goodness! 

I also wanted to show you the cover for Bjork's new Biophilia album which I just picked up; isn't it gorgeous? I love the aesthetic. 

Here is the video for the song "Moon". It includes more of what you see above, plus a good look at her nails. What do you think she's wearing? A dark red, but it also seems to have a metallic finish, or maybe gold shimmer? 

Anyways, that's what I've been enjoying today. Bjork, holographic lacquer, and chocolate. I hope that you'll enjoy it, too. 


  1. I'm a sucker for holo's - and this one is absolutely gorgeous :)

    1. Glad you like it! The strong, linear holos are my favourite, and this is a good one. Certainly one I had some trouble tracking down, but in the end I got my hands on it. ;)

  2. Pretty. I wish OPI would make more polishes like this now.

    1. Me too- I was so disappointed when the latest Designer Series releases was glitter instead of holographic. Maybe they'll get it together and go back to the holographics for the next DS polishes!
