The Polish Addict’s Top 20 Polishes of All Time: #11 OPI – Designer Series Exclusive

Happy New Year Everyone! I have a few nail polish related resolutions this year. First and foremost, I’m going to cut back on my nail polish expenditures. I’m only going to order colors when I run out of staples and I plan to limit myself to 3 to 5 per order. I’ll allow myself impulse buys but only for colors that are hard to find and already on my wish list. Addicts refer to this sort of endeavor as a low-buy/no-buy. I don’t know how successful it’s going to be but I’m going to try!

We’re finally approaching the top 10 in the countdown.  Number 11 is an exhibitionist, OPI Designer Series Exclusive.


Don’t mind my bottle, it’s a little jacked-up. Exclusive is an older color and I believe I received it in a swap. I’m a pretty huge fan of holographic nail polish in general but there is something particularly beautiful about Exclusive.


My love for this color is surprising because I’m really not a fan of pinks but Exclusive is just so… luxurious and exquisite. My picture above just does not do it justice. The nail wheel swatch to the left is more accurate in showing the amount of bling one should expect from Exclusive. As you can see, this color goes all out. Love it.

    I definitely need to put myself on a low-buy/no-buy, I realized my collection has gone from a paltry 14 in May to the astounding current number, 101. Is Exclusive similar to the Extravagance? That is one definitely in my top 20, but Exclusive looks so tempting…*headdesk*

    Lovely color! It looks beautiful on you! I am not a pink loving person either but do own a couple of DS in pink. Chiffon and Divine. Well, I do own a few pinks other than these but not many. And mostly hot pinks or fuchsias. ;D

  5. Sminkan Says:

    Oh, I must say I really loved the color club-polishes I won in the franken polish contest! They were great! Thanks!

    Now this one I would wear without having to fight my phobias. So much bling.
    P.S. Screw low-buys. We need to kick start the economy :D

  7. Sanna Says:

    Yay, this is one of my faves too!
    So gorgeous!

    Steph – Yeay!

    Susi – : ) Your welcome.

    TAG – Extravagance is darker and Exclusive has finer more reflective holo. Turn back while you still can as far as polish purchases. Lol.

    Sminkan – Me too. I feel like I need to quickly pick up all the DSs even the ones I don’t like. Lol. And yeay! Let me know if you ever write an article about them. : )

    Jinnzor – lol yea, right but I think my credit card companies are going to start pulling my limits then what will I do? : P

    Sanna – Definitely. : )
