DS Reserve

So my internet is still not set up… I am starting to get very impatient!  It is supposed to be set up tomorrow by 4pm, so hopefully everything works out and I can get back to posting regularly.
Today I have DS Reserve for you. I am absolutely in love with this polish, I have nothing bad to say about it. As you might have figured out already, I am a huge fan of their Designer Series line. The diamond dust formula really isn’t just a marketing ploy, the formula is amazing! These polishes apply incredibly smooth and the drying time is almost unbelievable.
DS Reserve  is the perfect shade of pink, in my opinion.  It really didn't do anything for me in the bottle, it looked sort of, dare I say, boring? But on the nail it was spectacular! I believe that this shade is office appropriate. It's not your everyday beige or pale pink. This polish is holographic, but not over the top, which makes is a safe bet for even the most conservative of environments. I used 3 coats of this polish over one coat of OPI's Nail Envy. 2 coats probably would have been fine, but I'm a habitual 3 coater. 

3 coats, no top coat

The Designer Series line has a steeper price tag than the rest of OPI polishes, but I find the formula to be well worth the extra cost. These polishes run for around $15.00 Canadian, but you can find them on sale every now and again. I tend to have a hard time finding the Designer Series line, as they aren't carried at all stores that carry OPI. 

What are your thoughts on this polish? Which is your favourite shade from the DS line?
