This is like black... but BETTER haha. This colour looks black most of the time, unless you’re under bright lighting then you can tell is a dark chocolate brown. I know the sunlight picture could be better. It was a rare moment in winter and the sun was shining through my window. So there I was...sitting there at the corner of my room taking pictures of my hands. What a sad sight ahahah.

I think the formula was a tad bit gloopy, so I probably would’ve had a better time applying this is I added a few drops of thinner in there.

That said, this polish is pretty opaque after just one coat. I’m wearing 2 coats and top coat in these pictures. This polish is quite long-lasting too, I wore this for 6 days and I only have slight tip-wear and a small chip on my index finger.



  1. Black but better! I can't wear straight black polish, so maybe I should give this a go.

  2. Same here! Plain black nail polish doesn't really tickle my fancy or do anything for me. I like this much more :D.
