Default What's a good colour for highlighting Midnight Blue?

Well, I'm painting my Sisters of Battle armour Midnight blue, which, as you may or may not know, comes out a very dark purple-ish colour when painted over a black undercoat. I like the way it looks, but can't think of any colours that would look good for a highlight...

What are your opinions?

regal blue ( And got experience with it let me dig up a piccy

Might be a bit strong but in my case it was exactly what I needed. Ultramarines blue and liche purple are more of a different tone than midnight blue so I wouldnt go with those. You can also just try midnight blue with some white. Altough than the hilites are very difficult to see

or, just get some Midnight Blue, and mix a bit of white in it to make it a bit lighter...

I would cut the midnight blue w/ the next color up in a 50/50 mix. Then highlight it with the higher color.
