Try It On Tuesday: Pretty & Polished Midnight Rider

Pin It
Hey guys,

Jilltastic Nail Design and some of her nail friends were talking about how they had so many untried polishes lying around and decided to wear 1 untried each week and share it with their followers!
A lot of other bloggers have jumped on the bandwagon, including me, so every Tuesday for the foreseeable future will be dedicated to showing an untried polish. It's called TRY IT ON TUESDAY!

I have had Midnight Rider sitting around for a wee while now - I'd seen it on Chalkboard Nails and fallen in love, but it arrived around the same time as Lynnderella Very Pretty Vampire and since they seemed a bit similar I let MR fall by the wayside.
Then Jill started talking about untrieds on facebook and I thought I'd whack it on.

Midnight Rider

Midnight Rider is a dark purple shimmer with red hex and purple square glitter in it. This is not the same formula as the original Midnight Rider that I saw on Chalkboard Nails, which upset me a little because I didn't realise there had been a change made!! Plus the Chalkboard Nails swatch is still being used on the etsy listing, so it's a bit misleading...The original had a blackened purple jelly base with the same glitters in it. I don't really care much for glitter in shimmer bases myself, but MR still looks pretty great. I did 2 coats of MR and 1 layer of top coat for the photos

It's nice to get the first Untried out of the way!
What have you got sitting around waiting to be worn for the first time?

  1. This is such a good idea! I only ever wear untrieds lately.
    I really like the polish. Shame she doesn't ship internationally :(

    1. join in Cuti-CLUE-les! Just visit Jill's FB page and let her know you're interested. All the hangers on like me just post our links on her FB page each Tuesday. I'm real bummed that she stopped international shipping too! I really want sand art and phoenix and some of her brand new polishes and now I'm cut off!!!! But on the plus side that's more money that will stay in my purse...right?

  2. Bummer that she changed the formula. I can definitely see the difference between yours and Sarah's swatches, but the red glitter is still a very cool contrast for the purple shimmer.

    1. Yea, I just wish I had searched more recent swatches before I purchased it, but I love red and purple together!

  3. That's certainly a problem with indie brands. No consistency in the formulas. This should be updated. You ought to tell them that! Mani is pretty though!
