Today I have a simple swatch of OPI Designer Series (DS) Mystery. I was all primed and ready to put some serious gold dots on this baby…but after I got it on, I knew it didn’t need any fancy stuff.
DS Mystery was originally released in the Fall of 2009. This polish really is a mystery. It’s a deep, deep purple base with fine gold flakes. Depending on the angle, it can look purple, brown or black.
Application was smooth and it was opaque in two coats. Unlike most of the other OPI DS polishes, this one doesn’t have as much bling. I do like it though. I only wish the eggplant jelly base was just a tiny bit lighter.
In all…Mystery is a great alternative to black. The subtle shift from purple to brown makes this polish very versatile. Does anyone have this polish? What do you think?
