I’m Just Sayin….

Posted on: June 4, 2012

I need a “I’m just sayin…. Category for this blog.

As you can see I added a coat of DS Reserve by OPI as an accent to Cords by China Glaze. This is why I don’t wear polish for more than a couple of days, I get bored!
And, can I just say, what is the big deal about the DS Reserve by OPI? I don’t get it. I don’t get why it has to be in a separate section of the beauty supply store, all in its own little display case? I really don’t get why it is $12-14? I went on-line to find out the answers and came up short. The only thing I found out is the DS stands for Designer Series. I mean, don’t get me wrong, it’s a pretty color, pretty sparkly and all but I don’t get the why of it all? What am I missing?
I’m just sayin….

I like the title for this … I am often appalled at the price that OPI charges, not to mention some other brands. I can often get equitable dupes for less. oxo Care


Thanks, Care. May e this will be the start of a new series!


The DS colors are supposedly made with diamond dust and are supposedly made to last longer than the traditional OPI nail lacquers.


Thank you for that Jenni. Have you found that to be true?


Judi, you friggin’ crack me up 😛 I know what you’re ‘sayin’ though! I have a couple of these polishes but it pained me to shell out more for them. We’re essentially paying for the silver top!!!


I think you are right about the silver top taking the price up! 🙂

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
