At first when I saw the bottle I thought it must be like like DS Original. Just because they are both Purple Holos does not make them the same! I haven't done a post on Ds Original by itself other than using it in Nail Art (here's the link to that) so that is gonna be something i do in the future but the biggest difference between the too is that Sand-erella is more of a sleeper holo with a purple/greenish grey duochrome sheen. It's not a in your face holo like Original. From the pics you'll see yes it is pretty holo but compared to original it's more of a subdued holo.
Application notes... I had to thin this polish out a little it was a little lumpy, it's older and in a smaller bottle so that's understandable, i did 3 maybe even 4 thin coats. Also I was shocked that the little bottles have quite a bit of polish in them. Who knew?
At the bottom of the post I've got a little treat for you guys.... The Poor-Man's Sand-erella!
I painted my left with Sand-erella and for my right I did the "Poor-Man's Version of Sand-erella and honestly I couldn't tell the difference between the two!

|Part Sun Part Shade, heh sounds like planting instructions for a flower!|
|Poor Man's version of Sand-erella. Two coats DS Original with one coat Lavender Marquis.|
Fun Fact: The Lavender Marquis is one of the few bottles I owned before I became a Manicure Addict, that's why it's so used/beat up looking.
|Left to Right: Ds Original plus Lavender Marquis, Sand-erella, DS Original. On the nail you really can't tell the difference between the two!|
