I've had this baby sitting in my collection for a little while now and decided to give it a shot tonight. Man, I'm glad I did. This manages to be completely black yet so sparkly at the same time and really is unique. Application, however, was a bit of a pain as this is super thick to apply and yet still manages to have bald patches. What you see below is actually three coats, to ensure full opacity. Despite the minor annoyance, it's absolutely gorgeous on and worth a look.
I tell you, it's getting harder and harder to come up with different nails to do. I have a pile of polish to swatch but I get bored just doing a colour and talking about it. Pondering what to do last night, my eyes alighted on acrylic paints...yessss. As I'm not especially good painting but do have a large amount of patience for repetitive tasks like dots, dots it is! Inspired by a mental image something like this , I thought, why not rainbows? I like starting with a black base so I first applied two coats of my favourite shiny black, Rimmel Black Satin. Taking my tiniest dotting tool, I initially started with a red polish. Red doesn't show up on black too well so I switched to acrylic paints. I did a block of dots at a time in each of the rainbow colours. The result, a colourful abstract field of tulips!
