This OPI color is THE BEST. I can wear it out and I can wear it to the office - - I will get so many compliments! Kind of reminds me of a couture color a company like Chanel might make, but much more affordable. I find it wears well. To me, this is also a multi-seasonal color.
I’m thoroughly obsessed with this color. So dreamy and gave me full coverage in just one coat - which is always a plus!
This color is hard to describe. Vampy but more..
I've purchased this since it came out with the Moscow collection. I saw it in my hair salon and loved it so much so I still wear and adore it. What makes me happy is with base coat 2 thin coats are all I need for fully opaque nails. I then finish with Seche Vive the gel effect top coat and it comes out so pretty and glossy. I love how this is dark with the almost black red shift, just so pretty! Also this lasts for so long on my nails plus it dries super quick, and barely chips. It's a great polish all around that I'm so happy they still make. I just picked up a new bottle and it's as good as ever. I'm cool toned and this is very flattering with my pale skintone. Recommended.
Midnight In Moscow came out back in 2007, as a part of Russian Collection, but I think, it has since been in their core line, as it is widely available. In the bottle in looks like a deep burgundy polish, but as soon as you start brushing it on your nail, you will see that it's a grey (watery black?) polish loaded with burgundy shimmer. I used 2 coats, but later I could see thinner patches on a couple of my nails, so I would recommend 3 thin coats for best result. On my nails this polish looked mainly black, occasionally the warmth would come through and it would look dark brown, but I couldn't capture the bottle colour. I bought this polish 3-4 years ago. I have worn in straight after my purchase and I remember being disappointed, so I haven't worn it since until now. This time around I still had that disappointed feeling. I've read in one of the reviews that this polish looks true to the bottle colour when applied over a burgundy base, so I will give that a go next time around. There are too many better polishes out there for me to repurchase this one. Based on previous reviews I can see it's a popular choice, but despite my love of dark polishes, Midnight in Moscow wouldn't be my top pick.
