Super Black Lacquers Swatch Spam


Hi guys!  First of all, I'm sorry for the slacking on blogging lately... I'm trying to figure out how to make working two jobs and blogging work together.  I think I will be having to cut back on my challenge participation and post a bit less, at least for the time being.  I'm at the point where I only have one day off a week, and I don't get home until 8pm from work, so there isn't much time to devote to nail art or blogging.  I'm planning on still participating in the Digit-al Dozen weeks, and having at least 3 posts per week the rest of the time.  So I hope you will stick with me through this transition period!  That said, let's move on to the good stuff!


Today I want to show you some polishes that Natalie Dee from Super Black Lacquers sent me to check out!  I'll just preface this post by telling you that the formula on all of these was lovely, no issues at all, and all of my swatches are two coats with no top coat.


First up is my personal favorite, Purdy.  Purdy is a gorgeous lilac with a pink shimmer.  I love the color of this one, and when I wore it with a glitter topper I didn't have any chips for something like 3 days, which is practically miraculous for me.  This one dries semi-matte.



Next we have Drunk Dial, which is a really unique polish.  Its a purple-leaning pink jelly base, with red, orange, and holo yellow glitters.  I was surprised by how opaque two coats of this looked, as the first coat seemed really sheer.  Yay for two coat jellies!



 This blue beauty is called Hello, Officer.  It is a true blue creme, which dries to a semi-matte finish.  A really nice color, and looks to be close to a "TARDIS blue" for those Doctor Who fans.




Finally, I have one of Natalie's holo polishes.  This one is called Whip, and is a charcoal grey holo.  The holo in this one is a sort of linear scattered holo.  Looks really nice in the sun and still has a hint of holo in the shade.

  4. I'm obsessed with Super Black! You've got to try The Whale - a medium gray with blue irridescence/sparkle. Also Wishful Thinking holo top coat - make any color holo!

    Betsy (navy blue with green glitter) is awesome, as well.
