NOTD March 3rd: Essence Color3 - Midnight Date (City That Never Sleeps)

Hey everyone!
Today I want to show you a polish I got a few days ago. Here *click* you can see first swatches and bottle pics and stuff :)
This polish is part of Essence's new permanent Color3 line, a series of double-ended polishes.
Midnight Date is a dark navy blue polish with a fine and super pretty shimmer. The shimmer reminds me a bit of China Glaze - Rodeo Fanatic (*click*), actually! It's really nice already on its own. And then there's the other side of the duo polish, called City That Never Sleeps. I love the fact that is has its own name :D It's a blue-green-purple sheer base with flakies :) The flakies are blue-green and change their look, so they're duochrome flakies! :D Make sure you enlarge the pictures!
Application was nice, considering the fact that it's double-ended and therefore a bit awkward to hold. But it's worth it, and the consistency of the polish is great, super easy to apply :) I did 2 coats of Midnight Date, and 2 on top of City That Never Sleeps.
This mani is so so gorgeous, and I just had to try it matte. Making it matte makes the flakies stand out more, but it also looks flatter. I think I prefer it shiny :D
What do you think of it? I love it!
xoxo, Misch
