Electric Midnight Blue

Hello, Fireflies!

This month's Nail Challenge Collaborative challenge is Our Favorite Color.  My fave color for as long as I can remember has been Midnight Blue.  It's kinda hard to capture in polish, as it can easily go too dark and end up black.  But I was able to pick 4 polishes that closely resembled what I love about the deep, dark, mysterious Midnight Blue.

I started with Seche Hypnotic, an electric/metallic midnight blue.

It has some brightness where the light hits, and some areas of shadows.  It's a one-coater, too.  I decided to add another of my faves, flakies, to it with Liquidus Lapis.

Can you see the flakies?  Yeah, me, neither.  Not really.  Whomp, whomp.

So disappointing when a flakie doesn't deliver!  I'll try it over something else before I declare it a total fail.  After all, there are so many in the bottle.  Surely they have to show up sometime on the nail, right?


  1. I agree! I hate being teased by a flakie!

    1. These 3 days of posts are nothing but flakie teases, between this one and the two Butter London Duos. I need a fabulous flakie!!

    1. Which ones do you have now? Did you ever get all the Zoya ones?


Thank you for your comments! They mean so much to me, and I read all of them, even if I don't always have a chance to respond.
