I love this polish and hate it at the same time. I love navy blues and this color is super pretty. The shimmer that runs through it makes it even prettier, but the formula just isn't the best. I find that I need to use 2 medium thick coats for it to apply nicely and it stains my nails like crazy! When I take this polish off, my fingers look like smurfs lol. Luckily I found online that scrubbing with a nail brush and whitening toothpaste takes the stain off and it works! Overall it's a pretty polish.

I can't add anything else that hasn't already been said. This is a very beautiful blue. As for the staining, I feel like many others here who don't really mind it because the polish is so nice. Just have a buffer block on hand to help you out if you encounter staining on your nails.

Midnight cami is my go to colour! Looks great with my fair skin and amazing with my fake tans! I found a similar colour in shellac and wanted a normal polish of my own. Essie was not available where I lived until recently and I'm so glad! Dries quickly, no streaks and great shine! Only issue, as said by others, colour stains and runs to cuticles. I love the colour too much to care though! Will be repurchasing this colour and others in the future

this nailpolish is a PITA, because it stains your nails after removal, and if you don't take good care of your cuticles before putting it on, it stains your cuticles and is awful to work with

However

It's worth it to prep your nails beforehand, and carefully put midnight cami on, because it is GORGEOUS!

this is the blue version of my all time fave np, OPI's lincoln park after dark. It is similar in the fact that it's a very vampy, almost black from far away, shade. I first discovered this in a nail salon. I got a mani and another customer remarked how classy/pretty the shade was.

Midnight cami has a fine microshimmer that is really only visible in sunlight.

Perfect dark dark blue vampy nailpolish. This is definitely one of Essie's must haves.

I have a love/hate relationship with this color. The deep midnight blue black with subtle shimmer is so beautiful. But the formula...! It's a pain. Which makes me not reach for it.

It's thin and floods my cuticles and skin if I'm not careful. I really have to put in the effort to maneuver the product on my nails. On the other hand, it is a one-coater (though I always use two coats).

It's also quite a stainer compared to other dark blues that I have. That doesn't bother me that much but thought I'd mention it.

I got this on recommendation because I wanted a deep blue with "hidden" shimmer, that is, the polish is dark but in certain lighting, shows a deep, lit-from-within flash of colour. And this polish definitely fits the bill on that count. A test of this polish on some white cardboard and some comparison to other dark blue polishes shows me that this one is definitely what I'd call "midnight blue" as opposed to navy or indigo (blurple).

I can get away with one coat of this, pretty much, because it's got great coverage and depth of colour. I definitely would not wear this without a base coat, however; heavily pigmented, dark polishes like this tend to stain, and while I haven't had problems with that, I wouldn't want to try it to find out.

No problems with removal, happily (sometimes dark polishes can be a pain to remove, but this was entirely fine).

This is probably my favorite deep blue polish next to Chanel Blue Satin. It's a rich inky blue that has a subtle shimmer. While this is about as dark as it gets for a navy blue, it still manages to stop just short of looking black. The shimmer is very soft which I prefer to a full on frost. The formula on this one is outstanding. It applies like butter and gives full coverage after two thin coats. Definitely one worthy of having for vamp lovers!

This is my 2nd bottle of this color and I love it! Super dark navy with shimmer....u really only see the shimmer in the bright light but still very pretty. I like that it almost looks black due to I don't really like a blue nail on my finger tips but u gotta get this one!

I recently bought this color after being very frustrated with the dark nail color i previously had on. The application was very nice and smooth. The formula is the perfect blend of liquid and cream. The polish was opaque at one coat, however I used two just to ensure longer wear. The one weird thing about this polish was the smell, it smelled almost like wet cement. But this polish is worth the grab!

As huge of a fan I am of this polish however, you really need a base coat and a top coat. It chips super easily and stains very strongly.
