Super Black Lacquers Spanked, Heather, Guilty and 3rd Degree Swatches and Review

press samples

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.

    I am DYING to try Tzarina and The Mallard from Super Black. Natalie is a genius. I wish I could get colors this gorgeous and creative in UV gel color. I stopped using regular nail polish because it chips in 3 days no matter what I do.
