NOTD: OPI DS Fantasy

I originally saw this polish at my grocery store on a day I happened to be exercising restraint ... the next time I went, ready to splurge, it was GONE. Argh! Thus was born a lemming. I intended to order it online, I saw it was in stock - right up until I placed my order, when it disappeared from availability! I was dejected. I was giving up hope... and then I found it on clearance at a Trade Secret =)

So, that's the story behind this particular polish ... strange how some polishes develop their own little histories & memories that they trigger. From the OPI Designer Series, Fantasy - Konad done with China Glaze Devotion & plate m40:

This is not as bling-holo as some of the other DS polishes, but it does have a subtle holo to it in the right lighting - seen best above in the sun pic on the bottle (click to enlarge). But even when the holo is not super-visible, this is a really nice dark blue, dark while still very obviously blue - I had one lady at work today grab my hand and say something like "that is BLUE girl!" which was kind of cool LOL. Thanks for reading.



  1. It may not be as "holo" as some of the other DS polishes, but that is jaw-dropping gorgeous. Has a ton of depth! Wrote it down on my wishlist, I hope to find it! The konad looks cute too.

  2. Fantasy is really lovely. It was a big seller at my last place of employment.

  3. The same thing happened to me with OPI DS Glamour!!! Thank God for Trade Secret sales! Looks great on you!
