OPI’s Designer Series Radiance

This is a gorgeous color - a true metallic, so there's no dithering about whether you've got enough of the holographic particles to give you really good effects. It also gave me complete opacity and even coverage in two coats, where most of the other Designer Series colors need three or four. It's a dead ringer for Sally Hansen's Celeb City, though - and it's harder to get, and costs a lot more. (Though I do think this is thick enough to use as a stamping polish…and again, most of the other DS colors are too thin to make effective nail-stamping colors.)
