OPI’s Designer Series Classic

Required four coats for full opacity, and the holographic effect is scattered rather than linear (as in all OPI DS polishes). It also required four coats for full opacity - but then, so do most of the Designer Series polishes. I would choose not to get this again because of the overall shade. The gold-brown color isn't my absolute favorite, it's almost too yellow on me. I think the holographics work to actually make it seem more yellow…so definitely not my color. It's also no longer easy to find, though I've seen it at my local Ulta, and it does pop up on Ebay from time to time. I like Illuminate much better - a cooler brown with a little less yellow, and a very faint green duochrome effect.
