Nightmare Moon's palette is fairly straightforward, but where you're likely to get tripped up is her mane and tail. They have several layers of opacity effects applied in addition to a gaussian blur. The numbers provided are pre-transparency, the transparency details are provided for your reference as well.
Remember, above all, that NMM is not pure black, but rather a very deep, dark blue.
Thanks go to for providing the vector artwork of Nightmare Moon.
The intent of using a standard color library (Pantone Solid Coated) is to stay within the bounds of said official artwork, plus give some consistency to colors used. This should help when sourcing supplies for non-digital work. If your application does not support color libraries, then using the eyedropper on the swatch should give you an answer.
