Hello lovelies, have I got a beauty to show you today!
Yes, this is OPI DS Original, a polish I never once considered I'd own. I'd seen it, loved it, then put it away to the back of my mind because I knew I'd never afford it. I didn't even bother putting it on my wishlist. But then one day I got a surprise package from my lovely birthday club friend Nicole of Epitome of Superficiality all the way in Australia. She found some DS polishes at a beauty supply store, and was selling them at cost price, but it was the week of my little ones second birthday so I passed. Then a few weeks later I got a card through saying there was a package at the post office for me, and this was it. A few of the birthday club girls had clubbed together and sent me it! How nice of them! I love love love my birthday club, you are all stars!
Anyway, onto the polish! prepare for a lot of pictures, a few bottle shots first. I actually gasped when I took this baby out in the sun the first time.
Of course when I changed my polish that night I had to break it out. 2 coats later...
I didn't dare add any topcoat for fear of dulling the holo, so I had some tip wear after a day. Not wanting to take it off though I added another coat and then sponged Glitter Gal Dark Purple 3D Holo on the tips. I did topcoat this time, to smooth it out, and I don't think it dulled the holo at all :)
LeSigh. How yummy? How awesome would it be if everything was made out of holo? Blingtastic.
I have quite a few holos in my collection now (although I am still searching for the as yet elusive GOSH Holographic Hero, as soon as I get my mitts on one I will be wearing it to death) so I might do a holo week soon if the sun stays :) I'd like a blue holo before I do though, any recommendations?
