Old School! OPI Midnight Blue Glitter

My favorite topic to discuss on my blog--old school discontinued nail polishes! Today I have OPI Midnight Blue Glitter, an aptly named--albeit very sheer, 4 coats!--charcoal gray shimmer with multi colored glitter in blue, teal, purple, silver, and black. Below is a mix of photos taken indoors, outdoors, and Ott-light assisted.

Midnight Blue Glitter was part of the little Tuxedo Collection (2004), which also contained Black Satin and Black Onyx. This polish has a very sheer gray base and an overload of glitter. You can basically get the same effect with a coat or two over a charcoal grey shimmer, or you can enjoy the fumes and go for 4 coats. A quick Google search shows that this polish is still available from a number of sources at a reasonable price. What do you think of this shade? I love how the blue glitter flashes against the charcoal color.

  12. wow! I have never seen this polish ever. the oldest polish I have is a 2005 color. I actually think this is very pretty..maybe a bit sheer but definitely buildable

  13. Very nice! The Tuxedo Collection was my first entire-collection purchase. Black Satin is still one of my fave colours.Do you have the rest to swatch on your blog? Creative's Hot Pop collection is next up on mine.
