Super Black Spring 2014 Collection Swatches

Happy Friday! Anyone have fun plans this weekend? I'm just doing nail polish stuff and the kitchen is getting most of the finishing touches. Yesterday the counter tops were installed and today and tomorrow the rest of the flooring is being put in. After that all that's left is the appliances getting installed...hooray! I seriously cannot wait until everything is done...renovating sucks!

Also for those wondering Degen is doing much better. I talked to his vet yesterday and one of the techs he sees every day (because I'm that psycho dog mom that calls to check on their baby every day lol) and they both said he's starting to act like himself again and the itching is much better! His vet was telling me that everyone there could tell he wasn't feeling good because he's the type of dog that makes everyone happy, when she gets there she says hi to him and he's always so happy that it makes her smile. She could tell he felt like crap because he hadn't been doing that for the last week.  Anyway, I'm glad he's doing better, I went and visited him for a little bit after work last night and he'll come home on Sunday once all the work is done in the house! I'm so glad he'll be home, I've been trying to make Oreo my replacement wiener dog and I think he's getting tired of the forced snuggling LOL!

Alright, onto I have the new Super Black Spring 2014 Collection to share with you. For Spring Super Black has introduced 5 new shades. There is a nice variety in both finishes and the range of colors. There are some nice spring shades but also a couple that are a little dark and vampy which I love! Check out all the swatches after the jump!

Framboise is a raspberry jelly full of various glitters. It has tiny black, matte pink, holographic lilac, and chunky matte white hex glitter in the mix. The formula was good, this is a little sheer at first but it's easy to build up. I used 2 coats for the photos below. 

Majestic is an orchid creme. This is a pretty good match for the Pantone color for this year- radiant orchid. The formula was really nice, it was a nice consistency and the opacity was good. I used 2 coats for the photos below.

The Grackle is a black base with a strong turquoise blue shimmer. This isn't a typical spring shade and that's why I like it, it's dark and vampy and the shimmer is gorgeous! The shimmer is easily visible out in the sun and it gives the polish nice depth in lower lighting, like the shade. The formula was good, it does dry a little dull so you'll want to top coat it to bring out all the pretty shimmer! I used 2 coats for the photos below.

The Haymaker is a dark purple crelly base with various sizes of neon red-orange matte glitter. I'm always a big fan of polishes like this that have nice contrasting glitter! The formula was great, it was easy to work with and the opacity was good. I used 2 coats for the photos below. 

The Stag is a yellow toned green with a super strong bronzey gold shimmer. No surprise here, this is a favorite for me! Anything green with shimmer is bound to be something I love. The shimmer is easily visible both in bright light and in lower shade like lighting. The formula was good, it was a touch sheer but it builds easily and was opaque in 3 coats.

Super Black is available at retail from $10-12

  3. I have to say I really like all of these! Glad to hear Degen is doing better too...I bet you miss him and can't wait until he's home and I'm sure he feels the same way. I know my dogs hate the vet and are always happy when they get back home. :D
