Today I have a super awesome polish that I'm SO EXCITED to share with you. When we got the opportunity to review some Super Black polishes, I had a little SQUEE moment before I casually played it off to my cousins like it was no big deal. You can see Erin's review of a different Super Black polish here.
Do you know who the genius behind Super Black nail polish is? Natalie Dee! Do you know who Natalie Dee is? You better, because she's the Queen of the Internet as far as I'm concerned. Natalie (and her husband) have been drawing web comics for as long as I can remember laughing at web comics. I'd show one here for you to see as reference, but I'm pretty sure that's copyright infringement. So I'm just going to link you to her website again where you can enjoy her over 3,000 web comics yourself.
Ok, ok. On with the polish. I'll put my fangirl freakout aside for a minute to tell you how much I love this nail polish. I've never seen anything like it and I definitely don't have anything I could compare it to in my collection.
The Whale- the result of our quest to make a flattering grey nail polish. It is a medium, neutral grey creme polish, with an aqua blue irridescence. A really pretty polish, and a favorite of the SUPER BLACK human guinea pigs.
This medium grey base is loaded with a light blue shimmer. The bottle is so shimmery and pretty and I'm usually so disappointed when the shimmer I see in the bottle doesn't show up on my nail. Not this time! I couldn't believe how pretty this baby looks on the nail. The bottles are sleek and thin with a long, thin brush to match. I usually prefer flatter, wider brushes, but this one worked well for me. I used two coats for the swatches below and topped them with my HK Girl top coat.
True story- I've worn this polish FOUR TIMES since I've had it. I don't have many polishes I can say that about!
Super Black lacquers retail for $12 each and can be purchased directly from their website. Don't you love that gorgeous shimmer?
