I got around to do some swatches today. I wished my nails were a bit longer but that will do for now. I purchased these two polishes at K-Mart. I don't recall seeing these shades in other stores.
Midnight Magic is a shimmery metallic foil with an interesting mix of colors. It's dark grey with blue and green shimmers. At certain angles, I noticed some purple duochrome. I was able to get opaque coverage in just two coats. The formula wasn't too thin or thick. Application wasn't too bad. It's not as smooth as I would like but it wasn't too difficult to work with. I really dislike the chunky scared cap. A smaller and round cap is fits better in my hand and is easier to handle.

Midnight Magic reminded me of Zoya Feifei so I decided to swatch them side by side to see how they compare. Midnight Magic has a bit more of a purple duochrome. Though both make a pretty good dupe, Midnight Magic has a more textured look. Feifei looks very smooth. I like Midnight Magic for the duo-chrome but prefer the formula and smoothness of Feifei better.
Timeless Rubies is another interesting shade. Formula is the same as Midnight Magic and I was able to get opacity in two coats. This one also has some duochrome magic to it. It's a reddish burgundy color with some pink and bronze shimmers.
Overall, I'm quite happy with these two CoverGirl nail polishes. The formula isn't the best but it was doable and the colors are interesting enough to make them stand out from the rest of the shades they have available.
What do you think of these colors? Are they something you'd wear?
