It’s Saturday. Wow. Christmas will be here before you know it. My “shopping” just keeps showing up on the doorstep each day. How did we survive the holidays before the internet? So today I have four shades from one of my fave indies, Super Black Lacquers. Natalie’s creations are always special…even if the polish is just a classic red…she always has an inventive spin. The SBL Holiday Collection includes five polishes and is available now here. But today I have an assortment of four polishes from her core line.
Spanked is a deep berry linear holo. I love this shade of polish. It was opaque in two coats and dried to a semi-matte finish. SBL recommends skipping the topcoat for maximum holo effect…but I love me some shine, so I added a coat of Seche Vite. It’s still pretty blingy if you ask me.
Guilty is very unique. It’s almost a vintage gold shade (that leans a little olive on me) with a strong holo effect in the sun. Indoors, the rainbow is subtle, but the polish is still glowy. With the right skin tone, this would be gorgeous. I’m just not a fan of it on me. The formula was excellent. My swatch is two coats.
3rd Degree is a rich, blood-orange with a golden shimmer and an almost metallic finish. Application was amazing with this polish. Does that ever happen to you? Where you use a polish and you think “Wow. This is dreamy.” LOL. Well that happened with this one.
And finally, this is Heather. It’s a pretty, medium-purple linear holo. I used three coats. Again, SBL recommends no topcoat, but I couldn’t resist!
The SBL formula is always excellent and the packaging is first class! I love the small brush and I’m never disappointed with Natalie’s creative shades.
