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. :)
