The OPI Designer Series is a line that is pretty awesome. Although it bares a higher price tag than regular OPIs, these holographic polishes are well worth the extra $4 since they pretty good holographics, in colors ranging from nudes to blues.
Lauren gave me this beauty for Christmas and it got lost in my sea of “untried” polishes. Her CVS also magically stocks OPI’s sometimes, DS’s included, and I think she got this one and others for less than $5. No joke!
Signature is an interesting color because it seems to look different on many skin tones and in different lighting. Indoors it is almost a muted, medium pinkish rose color, with holographic sparkle. But when it gets in any strong light, the color lights up and gets more depth, and of course, more holographic!
After wearing scattered, not so strong holographic polishes recently (Tronica), it’s nice to wear this stronger linear holo. It’s always good to have something to stare at that’s pretty and full of color. The formula and application on this polish was standard, no problems. I did two coats, but, I think three would have given a slightly better outcome. There’s some slight patchiness and unevenness of color on my right hand. It also dried quickly and looks pretty good anyway.
I was slightly hoping this polish would be a touch more purple, because I love purple. But the pink color that it is isn’t a typical pink, and it actually quite interesting and pretty on its own. It has some nice depth.
Where to Buy: Ulta / Online Retailers / JCPenny / Dillard’s / Trade Secret / $12.50 (regularly)
What’s your favorite DS polish? I only own a few, but they all seem to be great.
