NOTD: Black Diamond

(Click on the pics for the full effect)

I love black nails. I especially love black nails, layered with something over top. This is Man Glaze's (yes it's really called that, reminds me of something nasty) The Death Tar polish for the black base, worn for 1 1/2 days, with Essence's Fashion Victim nail polish layered on top. Result = shimmery black goodness. It's hard to accurately photograph the result, but it's like a very shiny, shimmery and metallic looking black with a silver pearl. Very chic!

The Man Glaze Death Tar polish is a matte black and it's very cool looking, but also a bit flat. I think this topcoat works really well with it. I did notice that the Man Glaze polish chips quite fast because you can't put a topcoat on it, unless it's a matte topcoat, because that will negate the matte effect of course. You can already see noticeable tip wear after just one day.

Let me know what's on your nails today in the comments below. :)

  5. I actually went and bought an Essence nail polish after you said that the quality is OK, and you were right, they really deliver a great product for the (very affordable) price. I'm wearing Essence Obsession :). BTW, your nails are AWESOME!

  7. I'm actually wearing ManGlaze Fuggen Ugly. The Death Tar will actually shine up on its own after about 5 days since its so porous it soaks up the oils from things like lotion and nail oil.
