OPI "Holiday Glow" & "DS Mystery"

I had totally forgotten about OPI "Holiday Glow" (which came out last winter with their Holiday Wishes 2009 collection) & just recently rediscovered it. It's a shame it didn't get more love from me before as it's such a beautiful color. But see for yourself:

It's a dark neutral brown loaded with lots of gold glitter, really swoon-worthy! It needed 2 coats to get completely opaque & even though the polish is on the thinner side, it builds up very well. I'm totally in love with it!

On to another gold glitter polish, OPI "DS Mystery"  which is one of the newer Designer Series polishes & if you expect a holo, you'll be disappointed as "Mystery" - while pretty sparkly - isn't a holo by any means: 

It's similar to "Holiday Glow", but darker. The weird thing about this polish is that it has a dark purple base which you can actually only see when removing it. On the nail & in the bottle it looks like a very dark brown.
Again I needed 2 coats, but the consistancy of "DS Mystery" is thicker. Even though I like them both, if I had to choose I'd pick "Holiday Glow", it just seems more vivid & uplifting to me.
But you can't go wrong with either if you like dark glittery polishes.
