I Spy Dolce & Gabbana Nail Lacquer in Midnight

Published in: Nails, Product Reviews


Watch yo’ back, Jason Bourne. If I were a super spy, I’d totally keep a bottle of Dolce & Gabbana Nail Lacquer ($20) with me to wield against my adversaries. The sleek bottle (lovin’ the embossed gold cap) doubles as a combination camera/GPS locator/flame thrower/Sonicare toothbrush!

Just kidding. 🙂

But before I painted my nails with it last Sunday, I actually checked to see if my bottle of shimmery dark purple Midnight had any gadgets embedded on the D.L.

Comparable to Chanel and Dior

I think Midnight’s a regal, all eyes-on-you kinda color — a rich, shimmery purple that looks like royalty on fingertips and toes.

Like the third bowl of porridge in The Story of the Three Bears, the thickness is juuust right (not too thick or too thin), and the brilliant shine and opaque coverage (I’ve been using two coats) remind me of something Chanel or Dior would whip up.

Seems durable

As for durability, so far, so good. I’ve been wearing Midnight on top of Essie First Base Coat since Sunday and have yet to see any major chippage.

You might like Dolce & Gabbana Nail Lacquer in Midnight if …

  • you like Chanel and Dior nail polishes;
  • you’re looking for a regal dark purple; and/or
  • you’re in the mood to splurge.

Midnight’s one of 11 Dolce & Gabbana nail polish shades currently available online at Saks.

It’s expensive, for sure, but stands up pretty well compared to other polishes in the same price range.

So You Think You Can Dance?

Are there any other So You Think You Can Dance? fans out there who caught last night’s episode??


I had to giggle when Evan got his N-A-S-T-Y on in the Janet Jackson routine.

That boy’s cute, but he’s so far from nasty it ain’t even funny. He tried, though, bless his heart.

Who’s your pick to win it all? I’m pulling for Brandon and Jeanine! 🙂

    I’m pulling for Brandon and Jeanine. I really wanted Janette to win though. 🙁

  4. Jennifer says:

    I want Kayla or Brandon to win. I really loved Janette, I was so sad when she left.

  5. Hyzenthlay says:

    Brandon! If not Brandon, then Jeanine (she blew me away with her solo last night), then Kayla, and I’ll be pretty mad if Evan wins. I seriously don’t understand his fan base . . . he’s a sweetie and all, but he can only do his style well. The other three definitely outdanced him last night, for sure!

  6. Marce says:

    Pretty! I’d like one and an eyeshadow in the same colour, please! 😀

    You know what would make a great outfit? A black pencil skirt, white blouse, a black belt, that nail polish, a pink lip with eyeliner on the top lash line, and those lust worthy Anthropologie shoes that you featured yesterday. That would be a drop dead gorgeous outfit.

    Or, you could replace the nail polish Parlez-vous OPI? That’d be drop dead gorgeous also.

  8. Diana Kim says:

    ooo lala! i love that color! 🙂

  9. Rosie says:

    Looove that purple, but I dont know. Am I the only one who hates the square bottles? chanel, D&G, lancome, great colors but I have a very hard time holding the square tops!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Rosie,

      Oh, good news — the square part lifts off! Tucked away inside is a round, black regular old nail polish cap (much like Chanel’s). It’s easy to hold and use.

  10. Glosslizard says:

    Ooh! For once I’m up on the TV happenings! I vote Brandon and Jeanine, I loooooved the pasa doble a la Matrix!

  11. Tavia says:

    Love the color, but I usually use nail polishes from Peggy Sage.

    That is a gorgeous shade! I like the square bottle — it has a sophisticated look to it. I might have to find a look-alike by OPI (cheaper) 🙂

  14. Kate & Zena says:

    Hm, I imagine a dinner with El Hub would be a good reason. I doesn’t have to be anywhere really expensive but a cafe with wine and dinner would be a good reason.

    They have the best colours
