The Ninja has long found dark blues like indigo and navy to be among her favorites in her collection. Especially blues that shimmer. Luckily, this one is worthy of joining the others!
Midnight Mission: "navy blue frost with silver micro glitter". As with many of the other shades in the China Glaze Vintage Vixen collection, the "silver micro glitter" is that nearly-foil type of size and shape, though not nearly enough is present in this color to make it a foil polish. The polish clearly has these silver particles, but no other shimmer seems to be present. It's more of an almost-sueded polish than a shimmer; certainly not "lit-from-within", but that makes it unique and interesting!

This blue is nearly navy (navy technically being nearly-black), but not quite. And it's glorious! This should be fairly universally-flattering, as most dark blues are. While painting this polish on, The Ninja kept thinking of those denim products that have a bit of shimmer (not that The Ninja would be caught dead in them, but she did encounter them in the 90's).
Application was a breeze (shown is two coats but it's possible one would have been enough if done carefully).
This polish will stain cuticles, so go slowly when painting and protect the skin around your nails with oil and sweep away from the cuticles when removing!
