Although Amethyst is not a current color for the OPI Designer Series, it certainly is an “oldie but goodie!” I have a passion for purple nail polishes, and this is a purple with a ton of personality! I also love that the DS polishes have diamond dust Amethyst is of course a holo micro-glitter with a light purple base color. Application was supurb, but did require three coats for opacity. This polish dried quite quickly. Holy mother of sparkle Batman! Pow! What a knockout!
As a holo the color really changed depending on the light source. In some artificial light the color appeared to be an almost subdued shimmery light purple. In sunlight or more direct artificial lighting the glitter really came to life! This polish truly is a gem! The pictures show three coats with a top coat.
The bottle picture is a fairly good representation of color’s appearance in indirect artificial light.
