OPI DS Original

   When OPI first came out with their Designer Series collection the polishes were amazing holographics.  I mean distract you every time you look at your nails amazing.  Original is a gorgeous lilac color.  

LOOK at the rainbows in the bottle! Remember to click on all of these photos to enlarge them and get an even better look.  Formula and application were good.  I used 3 very THIN coats and I think this was best.  Though I will probably layer this over a similar colored creme in the future, just to preserve the awesome.   I used China Glaze Strong Adhesion base coat and Sally Hansen Insta Dri top coat.

   I apologize if you can't look away from the rainbows.  They are mesmerizing.


   Nothing super special in the shade, like all holographics.  Just a nice purple with silver glitter/shimmer.


   But back inside, the rainbows come out to play.  

   WHY don't more polish companies make polishes like this anymore?  The newer DS polishes are nice glitters, but after the old holographics they just can't compare.  Sadly, the older holographic DS polishes are mostly discontinued.  You can still find this one on Ebay and Amazon, but be prepared to pay a bit for it.  You might also run across it in a salon or independent beauty supply for closer to retail if you get lucky.
