OPI DS Original Holographic Nail Polish

OPI Designer Series Original Nail Polish

OPI Light Purple Holographic Nail Polish

She's been locked away in my vault of darkness far too long. She certainly needs no introduction, as most of you probably know her very well... Miss DS Original is her name, and she is a gorgeous purple holographic that comes to life in bright sunlight.

In the bottle DS Original looks like a glorious linear (straight line) holo, but when applied to the nail it breaks up into more of a scattered effect between OMG and Kaleidoscope, to give you an idea. Still beautiful nonetheless.

How about one more picture for the road?

Isn't she a beaut? Original is a discontinued shade from OPI's Designer Series line, but you can still find her lurking about.

Who was lucky enough to grab this before it was discontinued? Are you a fan of holographic finishes? Have a great night!

This is really so pretty! But I can see it will require some effort to come off! That is why I steer clear of glitter tho my magpie self adores it!

Oh man. It's going to cost so much to buy this. But I want it so bad. THOSE COLORS!

I have a polish just like this but it's made by Sally Hansen and it has no problem coming off. If it's getting stuck in your cuticles make sure you wipe towards the tips of your nails when you take the polish off instead of towards you.

you have like the most unflattering nails ever.... I'm sorry to be mean but it's true!

Karaisoke said on Sep 15th, 2011 11:21 pm
So by unflattering, I assume you mean nails that are natural and not 8" long? Not everyone likes that over sized, false, plastic look. By that I mean some people have taste.

I VOTE to see hob's nails! Come on let's put ur azz on a pedastal and judge you!!! I bet, no, I know for a FACT you couldn't handle your own criticism!

Wow hob, way to be a douche. Regardless of your own personal opinion, maybe you should keep shitty comments to yourself.

Hi Steph,
Love your blog. You wrote: Always wrap the free edge or tip throughout each step. I didn't see this step in the video. Could you please explain how to do the wrap process and with what material. Thank you.

I am wondering if these gel polishes can be used with other gels. I have a different system with a different brand of base coat and top coat, can the different brands of gel mix?

I've had my kit for a couple of months now and love the way it lasts; but the Structure and Brilliance brushes are starting to stiffen and so is the gel in the bottles. Anyone else having that issue? Is there a way to thin them out?

Hi, does anyone know if I can thin out the red carpet base coat so that it is easier to apply?

Hi Prinzy,
It was a gorgeous color! I remember picking up a few bottles because I loved the color so much! lol! Actually, yes, I'm launching a store in the next couple of weeks. I have everything built, I'm just working on the Terms and Conditions right now, so it should be very, very soon.

I only have about 10 Studio M colors in the store currently, but I will be taking special pre-orders once it opens.

I missed out on speed, looks like a gorgeous high-end purple. btw, are you still thinking of selling studio m nail polishes on your website? thanks

Hi Sarah,
I'm not sure about retail stores, but you can still find them on

Sarah said, on Jun 12th, 2012 2:19 pm regarding Summer Collection: China Glaze Poolside
Can I still buy them in the stores now?

I've been playing with this system for about a month now. I love it! When I first started I used the clear just so I could get a feel for it. Then I got adventurous and tried a "sandwich" with a China Glaze color. It probably would have stayed on longer if I had been able to seal off the edges, but my nails were so short it was a bit difficult. The next time I used RCM gel polish in Simply Stunning (a pale slightly shimmery nude color). This time I had gotten enough practice to really make my coats thin and it worked out fabulous. I'm trying to send all my friends the Ulta 20% coupon (5/26 is the last day) so they can get a kit for about $64. :) Now I hope to get a little creative with color combos and nail design. Thanks for the review.
