OPI – Designer…De Better

I grew up on The Muppets, so while I wasn’t super excited about the collection – I knew I had to grab at least one polish – and Designer…De Better jumped out at me right away.

The color is a light silvery champagne foil with bits of copper/pink/red microglitter mixed in. In fact, it reminds me a lot of a long time lemming: ORLY’s Rage, with Rage being more a bit more rosy. Do you need both? No certainly not if you already have Rage, pass on this one.

The application was perfect, I used three coats and had no problems. The two times I’ve worn this I’ve gotten lots and lots of compliments – usually I get compliments on the more daring shades, so I was pleasantly surprised!

Now, my only problem is… I don’t understand the name! Can anyone clue me in on how this relates to the Muppets?



  1. I have both Orly Rage and OPI Designer the Better and they don’t look anything alike on my nails. Rage is like a true rose gold foil with no additional glitter whereas DTB is much more of a silver pink foil with red and pink glitter. I think they share the foil quality but color and microglitter vary greatly.

    1. Oh they are definitely different, I just no longer feel the need to buy Rage… they’re similar enough for me- and I don’t think non polish addicts would notice much of a difference.

  2. I love warm and fozzie! I just got it! so great. did anyone else wear seche vite on top? I did and I had major problems with it, which is weird because I loveee it as a top coat.

  3. I know this post is a few months old but I just found you guys so I’m binging on nail posts. 🙂 I have this color in a mini set and it is absolutely, 100% identical to China Glaze Swing Baby. Love them both. Found myself almost hoarding my Designer mini cause it was so teeny. Not like I’ve ever finished one but still.

What do you think?
