OPI’s Designer Series Magic

I was hoping that this would be a dark royal purple with some holographic effects. It's actually closer to a dark navy blue, almost black. The holographic effects aren't very visible, even after the four coats for complete opacity. There is a slight - very slight - purple duochrome. But this is definitely not the color I was expecting or hoping for.

Once it's on, it stays put until removed. So that bit is good. As for the rest…it isn't thick enough to be used as a nail stamping polish, it really doesn't give a strong navy manicure, so I'll likely be donating this to a local shelter.
