OPI DS Glamour is a discontinued and hard to find shade. I'm not even sure when it was released, but it was already the stuff of legend when I got into nail polish. Given that blue is my favorite color, of course I wanted it from the first time I saw it. It was the longest standing polish on my wishlist over at MUA, where it had been sitting for almost a year. Yesterday I got a package in the mail from my sweet friend Moxie over at MUA. She had picked me up a Canadian exclusive Nicole by OPI polish, and she had told me that she had a surprise for me in the package. You can imagine how I felt when I opened the package to find this inside:
I swear I stopped breathing for a second. Then I recovered my wits and thanked her profusely, which I will do again now: thank you, thank you, thank you, THANK YOU! =D
Funny aside, I had a bit of an adventure actually getting into the polish. I was all prepped and ready to go last night, and I couldn't get it open! That happens with older polishes sometimes. First I got my brother to try, and he couldn't budge it. I wrapped a rubber band around the cap... still no luck. Soaked it in hot water... still nothing. I finally let it soak for about 10 minutes in really hot water and it finally opened. I was starting to worry that this would end up being an utterly amazing paperweight!
Yeah, I took way too many pictures of this baby. But it's my blog, and I can do what I want! =D
Thank you again, sweet Moxie! This is proof that nail polish dreams can come true!
