FAKE-O!

uh huh.
looks kinda lovely eh? It's red and blue round glitter suspended in clear polish (glue, rather) with micro silver glitter. 
Applies like glue, smells like one. :(
Got it off eBay, Hong Kong seller. 

FUNNY BUNNY. Well, it's supposed to be a White creme. :S
But I ordered a DS OPI and 48 isnt a real DS number! 
And if you peel where it tells u to, what you get is the label coming off the bottle!
GAH. 
It costed me 8 SGD. 

And this http://www.lacquerized.com/2010/05/how-to-unmask-opi-fakes.html post came just one day after I received my package. YOU CAN ONLY IMAGINE :(

lesson learnt, am purchasing another OPI, DS Tapestry from a local eBay-er. Hope it comes soon :D It should be REAL *fingers crossed*

oh my goodness, that's crazy!! I really never realiZed there were so many fakes floating around. it is really very disheartening. It does look like an AMAZING polish... too bad it applies like glue :( ugh. I hope you didn't pay much!!

@Brooke, 8 SGD is ok. Usually a DS will cost up to 16 for the spree versions and 32 for the department store OPIs.
well, I hope to be able to dilute it or something, maybe pinch my nose when i apply it? LOL

I have bought a lot from ebay and been very lucky but I have seen some really dodgy ones on there too. Bad Luck Hun xx
