As a licensed first-time user of the theme designer, I was curious about the not obvious differences between the three Nova themes and Mytheme.
Comparing the near 500 variables in _variables.scss, here are my findings:

Mytheme = Nova Light (no difference)

Mytheme vs. Nova Dark (10 variables differ)
//Global
textSecondaryColor
//panel common (e.g. accordion, panel, tabview)
panelHeaderBorder
panelHeaderBgColor
panelHeaderTextColor
panelHeaderIconColor
panelHeaderIconHoverColor
panelHeaderHoverBgColor
panelHeaderHoverBorder
panelHeaderHoverTextColor
panelHeaderHoverIconColor

Mythem vs. Nova Colored (20 variables differ)
//Global
highlightBgColor
highlightColorText
// panel common (e.g. accordion, panel, tabview)
// the next 10 variables are the same as those listed for Nova Dark
panelHeaderBorder
panelHeaderBgColor
panelHeaderTextColor
panelHeaderIconColor
panelHeaderIconHoverColor
panelHeaderHoverBgColor
panelHeaderHoverBorder
panelHeaderHoverTextColor
panelHeaderHoverIconColor
//
panelHeaderActiveBgColor
panelHeaderActiveBorder
panelHeaderActiveTextColor
panelHeaderActiveIconColor
panelHeaderActiveHoverBgColor
panelHeaderActiveHoverBorder
panelHeaderActiveHoverTextColor
panelHeaderActiveHoverIconColor

I realize that the Nova themes are free and form the basis for the default theme, but the differences hardly justifies their existence, especially when they mostly impact the side panel and hover events.

I couldn't replicate them.
Exp;
Mytheme vs. Nova Dark (10 variables differ)

primefaces-mytheme -> $textSecondaryColor:lighten($textColor,25%);
primefaces-nova-dark -> $textSecondaryColor:lighten($textColor,25%);

Which designer version are you using? Also, sass compiler throws an excaption when the variables are different.

Best Regards,
