Hey y'all! I have something super special to share today! O.P.I. Designer Series (DS for short) is an LE line of polish released every year in the fall. Older releases were holographic polishes and are now considered HTF (hard to find). You can find usually find them on EBay or Amazon, but will pay at least $20 for a bottle. I stumbled across a bottle of DS Sapphire (released in 2006) at my local grocery store during a fantastic sale on O.P.I. Can you believe I grabbed this baby for $5?!? Major score!

O.P.I. - DS Sapphire
DS Sapphire is a silvery blue linear holographic. The holo is really strong, despite my pics. Sadly my lights have problems with holos. One thing I noticed, and I didn't read anywhere else, is that it also has a very subtle purple duo chrome shift as well. You can see the purple flash on my pinkie nail in the first picture. Since this is a much older polish, it is not 3 free. It has all the nasty ingredients that are now considered to be toxic and carsinogenic! It definitely has that old polish smell! Formula was a bit sheer, but surprisingly smooth. I didn't have to use Aqua Base for application. 3 coats for shimmery holo goodness!
As a collector, I am over the moon to have this in my stash. Older DS's are quite coveted and I honestly never thought I would find one. Have you ever found a HTF polish?
