I have been admiring swatches of this particular nail varnish for a very long time. I think I first spotted it on Scrangie in 2008 but by the time I decided to order it, I couldn't find it anywhere. So, when I spotted this on Just Nice Things blog sale, I knew I wasn't going to miss my chance!
This is such a stunning polish, it's a rich plum purple packed with shimmer. It was part of the OPI Designer Series and I believe they are holographic. Whilst I'm not sure this is truly what I would describe as holographic, the shimmery effect is amazing and it's not gritty or tricky to remove like a traditional glitter polish.
Although nothing lasts terribly well on my nails, I found this quite hard wearing and I didn't experience significant chipping until the second day of wear. Something of a miracle for me. On normal nails I imagine this would last very well.
I assumed it would be hard to get hold of this colour now but I found it on BeautyBay for £16.75. It's obviously more expensive than a regular OPI polish and puts it at a similar price point to Chanel and Dior polishes. I do think this is just as pretty as any Chanel that I've owned. I can't deny that I struggle to justify the cost with the expensive polishes, probably because nothing last terribly well on my nails. Really that is the subject of whole other post though so I'll leave it there!
Bottom line: Gorgeous polish and it was well worth the wait.
