NOTD: OPI Merry Midnight

Happy Friday!
Today I'm wearing Merry Midnight by OPI. I've had a love/hate relationship to this polish, first when I saw swatches of it i thought it was great and I NEEDED it! So I bought it, it arrived and it looked great in the bottle with pretty flakies and glitter. Painted it on a plastic nail tip to see what it looked like and my first reaction was 'meh, what was the hype about?'. This was well over a month ago, probably closer to two and it been untouched since. Until now, and I'm glad I picked this bottle up, it looks great once on the nails! The flakies pop more than it did on the tip, not as much as I would have liked, but In most lights you can see them as hot coals under water. I was dissapointed the green flakies you see in the bottle wont show on the nails, but it's no biggie. Merry Midnight is a gorgeous deep purple polish with glitter AND flakies! *squee*

They wont show much in the picture but there are blue glitters in there with the flakies somewhere!

See the green flakies towards the sides of the bottle? Maybe it's just an illusion in the bottle? Wish they showed up like that on the nail though.

As expected it was pretty sheer, otherwise the flakies wouldn't show up through the base color. It took 3 thick coats to get it opaque, which isn't all that bad. It was easy to apply, I just love the OPI pro wide brush, a tad bit runny though and some got stuck in my cuticles and like most dark colors refused to come off when I tried to clean it up.

I've been looking at my hands all day at work today, its soooo pretty and festive! Hope they will make more flakies in different colors. If you don't own this you need to buy it! NOW!
