OPI Merry Midnight
from the 2009 Holiday Wishes Collection
I went though my stash last week and picked out a few shades that I remember being unique that I hadn't worn in a while and OPI Merry Midnight ended up in that pile.
Merry Midnight is a sheer deep warm purple base that has both opalescent glitter and opal flakes. It's really pretty, but the formula leaves a lot to be desired. First, since it's so sheer, you need at least 3 coats to get even base coverage, and even then it is a bit uneven. Second, because of that thin, sheer formula, it's super-hard to wrap your tips with this one. Regardless, it's still gorgeous and for a 2009 shade, very unique. I believe it was one of the first flakies OPI released.
