In my last post I mentioned already that I had scored a bunch of OPI’s at TK-Maxx recently. The one I’m going to show you today is definitely my favourite of the bunch: DS Reflection and it was only 4,99 EUR, what a bargain! 🙂
The DS in OPI DS Reflection means “Designer Series”. All nail polishes from the DS collections have a silver cap instead of a black one, and they are supposed to be special because they are infused with diamond dust and “dazzle like diamonds”! All DS polishes I own are really pretty and most of them are holographic (I guess this is what OPI means by “diamond dust”). The DS polishes usually cost a little more than polishes from the regular lines.
Lotte and Tine have a very generous giveaway going on which I’m entering with my posting: They are asking for everyone’s summer colour, so here is mine! This polish is the perfect red summer nail polish for me, the holo sparkles are really dazzling in the sun!
Let’s take a look at DS Reflection! OPI itself describes this polish as a rich, glowing ruby. And indeed it is! The base colour is a nice and deep red, and what I love about it is its warm orange-y shimmer that adds some extra depth and uniqueness. And then of course, this polish is packed with scattered holographic particles (or, as OPI puts it, “diamond dust”). The finish is thus a warm-shimmery red with scattered holo. Can you guess what happens when the sun hits it? BAM! But this polish also looks very nice in the shade, with lighter and darker particles giving it a very special look.
The application was very nice, two easy coats was all I needed. It also dries very fast but not very shiny on its own. So, for the glossy effect, I added one coat of aHK girl fast drying top coat. The wear was also good, no early chipping or tip wear. Removal was unproblematic (no staining etc.).
Thanks for stopping by and happy weekend!
