Hi guys, happy Friday! Today I have swatches of an indie brand I'm pretty excited about called Super Black Lacquers. Super Black is made by Natalie Dee who I've been a big fan of years, if you've never seen her cartoons I suggest you go check them out! Last year Natalie started up Super Black and I've been itching to give them a try so I'm excited to finally have gotten to! Super Black offers a nice range of finishes and colors, everything from glitters to cremes and holographic polishes! Check out all the swatches after the jump!
Becky is a a navy blue jelly with small bright green glitter. This is my favorite of the bunch, I love unusual glitter combos and this is one I don't have already in my collection! The formula was great, a little sheer on the first coat but completely opaque with the 2nd coat! I used 2 coats for the photos below.
Drunk Dial is a magenta jelly with holographic gold and red glitter. It's hard to see the holographic-ness of the gold glitter in photos but it's visible in person! The formula was good, I thought this would be very sheer but it built really easily and was opaque in 2 coats!Both photos below are in natural sunlight.
Hello, Officer is a blue creme. I love that Super Black is doing cremes, I know that a lot of people shy away from indies because they don't like crazy glitters, for those of you who are like that you'll like this one also! The formula was good, it was a little bit more thin that I usually like my cremes to be but application was easy and it was opaque in 2 coats. This dries a little bit satin matte so I did use a top coat for the photos. Both photos below are in natural sunlight.
The Whale is a medium grey with a strong blue shimmer. The blue shimmer has a tiny bit of a purple shift to it but I couldn't capture it with my camera :( I'm really impressed with this polish mostly because of the formula, it seems like whenever I have a great polish with an awesome shimmer it's always super sheer but this was pretty much the complete opposite! The formula was fantastic and nearly opaque in 1 coat! I used 2 coats for the photos below, the shimmer was visible inside and out in the sun! All photos below are in natural sunlight.
Torque is a blue holo. This is pretty much perfection, this was more linear looking in person but hard to capture with my camera. The formula was pretty much flawless, I was like :O when I started applying this. If the rest of the Super Black holos are also like that I will be needing to buy them all right now! This was opaque in 1 coat but I ended up doing 2 to deepen the blue a bit. I did use top coat for the photo, it didn't dull the holo! All photos below are in natural sunlight.
Super Black Lacquers are available at http://superblacklacquers.com/, each polish retails for $12! It looks like right now they only ship within the US
