Twinsie Tuesday: Favorite Holo

For today's Twinsie Tuesday, we have to swatch our favorite holographic polish.  How to choose??

I racked my brain going over my holos and which I thought would be perfect for today's post.  I decided to go with what was my first "special holo" I ever bought about 3 years ago, OPI DS Extravagance, which I first swatched here back in 2011.  A red toned plum jelly base, this scattered holo is both elegant and magnificent.  The rainbow effect is subtle but glows when struck by the light or sun, adding that special something to an already beautiful color.

The formula is slightly runny and I struggled with cuticle pooling on my index finger (which I tried to remove but unfortunately the color just refused to budge from my skin).  More thinner coats are definitely necessary, but wait between coats to avoid dragging.  This is 3 coats.

While most people go directly to sharp, linear holographic nail polishes, I was drawn to both the color and understatedness of OPI DS Extravagance.  I can't wait to wear this again in the fall!

  1. You captured the beauty of this polish perfectly, it's stunning!

  2. I love this polish. I have a bottle of my own that still stands untried!

  3. You need to try it! You won't be disappointed!

  4. My eyes got super big and I started drooling when this post loaded.

  5. Great pick! That is a gorgeous one.

  6. This is gorgeous! It's just so rich and expensive looking. This is the type of polish I would expect from the high end brands like Deborah lippman and Butter London.

  7. I think this was one of the first DS polishes that OPI released. I don't think they've been able to replicate how beautiful their initial DS polishes were since.

  8. This color looks amazing on you!

  9. seriously gorgeous. must find a bottle!

  10. Yay for DS! DS Extravagance is such a beauty!

  15. such a gorgeous polish! I want these DS polishes badly!
