Never one to turn down a trip to a drug store, when a co-worker asked me to come along to CVS on our lunch break to print pictures for mother's day and I gladly tagged along. While the photos were printing, I conveniently had some time to kill in the beauty aisle... and it was on this spontaneous trip that I stumbled on quite possibly the most epic CVS find ever: an OPI DS polish!
Here's where I need your help - I don't actually know for certain which DS polish this is! There was no name label on the bottle of this beautifully intensely holographic lavender polish. The bar code was so worn down that the cashier had to manually enter the SKU. Maybe this CVS was doing some spring cleaning in the stock room???
As soon as I could, I Tweeted a picture of this polish and several of you guessed OPI DS Original. Mara from Bar à Ongles actually ran right over and bought the only other one. Mara is also pretty sure it's DS Original. But what about DS Amethyst?
In direct sunlight, the holo is intense and linear. The purple color is stronger than it appears inside. I didn't use a top coat and it's still so shiny!
Indoors, the holo is still impressively visible however the color appears lighter and much pinker. Because this polish looks different based on the lighting, it's hard to look up pictures online and compare :)
So what do you think this polish is? OPI DS Original, OPI DS Amethyst, or something else?
Bottle shot - so much holo!!! Indoors, natural lighting
