OPI DS Exclusive Holographic Nail Polish

OPI DS Exclusive Holographic is one of my favorite nail polishes. It shines like no other, has the most beautiful wine/fuchsia tone and glides like a dream for so close to the cuticle manicures. Love! This is a highly sought after discontinued color.

This is my entry in Crumpet's Nail Tarts Laid-Back 31DC Challenge. I hope you enjoy it ☼
