Swatch: OPI DS Reserve

I only got into the whole DS polish scene recently because I just never wanted to shell out that much money for a nail polish, not that I had the money in the first place! But since drugstore.com was having a 40% beauty products sale, I got this for a little less than $7 (with OPI DS Classic still on the way!) and I'm SO glad I did. I'm not sure about the other polishes but this is a GORGEOUS polish.

This polish is one of those where they chance color with lighting. Depending on the lighting it could look warm in lower lighting, and can look cooler in more natural lighting. 

It has a scattered holo effect that shows as silver glitter/shimmer in darker lighting but in bright lighting it glows with holographic goodness! The formula was immaculate! If you really wanted to you could make this a 1 coater but I prefer doing 2 thin coats always. It dried super fast and still hasn't chipped even though I am absolutely brutal with my hands. I'm trying to work on getting them healthier though. You can see by my cuticles...  

You can see the gorgeous scattered holo effect here. 

And here! 

See how in certain lighting it could look cooler? 

Love this polish.


  1. The OPI DS polishes are nice, kind of sad that they are not as holographic as other polishes, but that is one colour I also picked up from the DS collection also.

    You also have nice nails and nice application as well.

  2. Yeah, I know exactly what you mean. I wish I started my polish kick while the linear holographic ones were still around. :/

    Thank you so much.

  3. This color is so pretty. :O
    Thanks for the swatch!

    1. Thank you so much Amy! Yeah, I wasn't sure what to expect when I got it but I love it!
