NOTD 63 – Mystery

Last night, we went to see ParaNorman. It was so cute, and funny; it took a turn for the more serious and moral to the story if you will, about three quarters of the way in. All in all though I thought it was very cute! Then of course we came home to watch the Season Finale of True Blood, so I never got to post this last night like I wanted..

On Saturday after over 3 hours to, from, and waiting at the dealership for our 30,000 Mile service, I went and bought myself a new nail Polish. I went to Image Beauty who doesn’t have the latest collections, so I still haven’t gotten the few I wanted from China Glaze’s Safari. Instead I ended up with an “OPI DS – Mystery” It’s a beautiful deep almost black purple. The first coat you can really see the violet in it with the gold sparkle, but by the second coat it looks more black but up close you can see the plum a bit.

I had some chippage issues, I painted my nails Saturday and just by Sunday night had some chips at tips, even with wrapping. This morning I did some chip recovery so that is why if you see any uneven-ness it’s probably because of that. Now on to the swatch

So again, its a very faint purple, so of course extremely hard to capture. and the gold sparkle isn’t overly sparkly so it dulled a lot in the pictures..

Here is a picture of my thumb, you can see all the flecks in this picture they almost look like purple flecks . You can see the purple a bit more in this picture, which is why I liked it better, but at the same time its still hard to see the gold shimmer. But you get the idea… beautiful color but problems with chipping. The formula wasn’t overly thick like most full-on glitters, but it was thicker than most polish.

Well that’s it for now. Next time, Nicole says I HAVE to try the seran wrap mani :), check out hers here: and here:

  1. OOoo! I bought Mystery a few months ago, but haven’t gotten around to wearing it yet. It looks so pretty, but what’s up with the chipping OPI!? I would expect DS to be a little more durable for the extra $$.


    • Right!! I was so upset! 😦 but when I took off the polish the purple came off immediately and I was left with a glitter bomb of the gold stuck to my nail so I think it had something to do with the formula… it was like off or something. plus the glitter bombs. I think OPI’s are iffy and maybe even other brands with glitter bombs chipping. Because it’s so thick


  2. Haha yes you do have to try it!!! I’m trying to catch up on blogs after vacation and so far I don’t think I’ve seen you do a Saran Wrap mani… Where is it?? Haha. I like this polish but thats super annoying it was so quick to chip!! I recently got my first couple of DS polished and the first one at least (classic) didn’t chip and I loved the glittery get easy to remove formula. Guess it just goes to show how formula differs from one polish to the next! It does look super pretty tho!! 🙂
