My OPI Designer Series: OPI DS 021: Diamond

DS Diamond is one of the last linear holographic polishes in the Designer Series. It is an unusual colour, sort of grey, sort of lilac, sort of light brown, sort of silver!
It was one of the 4 I bought brand new in 2006/7 and I was impressed at the time. I still am! The product has discoloured in the bottle but this doesn't seem to have affected the quality so far. I am not sure what has caused this to happen.
Application is great, it is smooth and doesn't have any problems with dragging. It was longer than average in dry time and did dint a little later. I have not used topcoat, it is this shiny out of the bottle. Maybe dry time would have been improved if I had used topcoat.

This doesn't have the same stinky smell as the earlier DS polishes but is stronger smelling than other OPI polishes. So I guess this was made as they were reformulating their products.

Some DS polishes are still available from retail sellers of OPI but most are long discontinued and will have to be found in eBay or Facebook sale pages.

  1. Great detail. Fine nails and looks like very fine speckles in the varnish.
