Creative musings in bright colors

Glowing Black

Storm (by Zoya) is a polish I have been lemming for almost exactly a year. And now, I finally own it. I also own a beautiful black matte (Rascal, by Mentality) and decided I had to pair the two. Although I don’t plan on wearing this for New Years, it would work!

The design is simple: checkers and dots. There is no top coat (even over Storm) because all of my topcoats are quick dry and that ruins the holo. This is probably my new favorite black.

Storm went on in two beautiful thin coats. There was 0 clean up with this manicure. I didn’t even get the acetone out. I just free handed some straight lines. Win for both polishes!

And now for some slightly blurry but completely glittery photos:

  1. This is gorgeous! I also really want Zoya Aurora and Logan from the same collection. One day soon I’ll have enough disposable income to pay the ridiculous shipping fees to order some!

  2. This manicure is sooo cool!!! Now I need Storm *___*

  3. The stark contrast between these two is GORGEOUS.
    impressed by your freehanding skillz! ; )

  4. Very cool! 😀

  5. They go so well together. Might have to try out a design inspired by this!
