I just saw the NL nikki in person at Three Sirens and it's beautiful! It is a bit lighter than I thought it would be.. It looks exactly like the old Royal color except with the same glaze type finish on it as the Noir & Dark Brown. It is a shimmery, slightly textured blue. In some pictures it looks like a dark navy but if you take it into the light it looks just like royal/ iris.

^LR, how did you like the shimmery texture? Do you like it more or less than the regular soft leather (i.e., iris/ocean)???

This is a total guess savvy, but I don't think it is glazed. I think it is just sort of shimmery if that makes sense. I'm concerned I won't like it and that I've missed out on the iris nikkis now. I'm having like a mini panic attack and I haven't even seen the NL nikki yet!!!! Speaking of the iris nikkis, in case I don't like the sheen on the NL, does anyone know where I could get an iris nikki????

Watch, tomorrow, I'll be raving about how I HEART my NL nikki and this will have been a total non-issue.

Shaurin- You are right.. it isn't very glazed but I think they use a similar glazing type process to get this shimmery/ veiny effect. So I use the tern glazed very lightly.

I really like this leather.. the color is what threw me off. I was hoping for a darker navy.. like a dark midnight blue or something. I think I'm going to cancel my order which will be very good for my wallet. At least give myself some time to really think it through..

I tell ya Tan..what bugs me about this bag is it looks light blue near the stitching, KWIM?? That is not what I wanted. I wanted a TRUE Dark Navy...if I knew if was going to be close to Iris...I would not have ordered it. A bit disappointed now.
