I'm starting to wonder what kind of peeps are working at that cosmetic company...
Anyway, I decided to try on one of my recently obtained LA Girl Metal polishes. For some reason I picked Obsidian. With some recent album releases I just... Had to. Because.
First, let's check out a square nihrida style bottle macro crop of Obsidian.
Fullblown sun. It's shimmery.
I honestly believe this is the blackest nail polish I own. Some black polishes are black, others are black. For a shimmer, this one is intensely black. Shown is two coats.
The shimmer I believe is really of a fine, glassfleck sort. It's mostly just plain silver in the shade, but in strong lighting it starts to reflect different colors.
However, this is just a black polish.
Therefore, on the second day of wear, I decided to do some layering. What better to pick than another LA Girl polish? I picked one from the Rock Star collection, Head Banging, one that I would normally have worn a long time ago, if it wasn't because it's so darn sheer I realized it had to be layered. Now was the time to go get it.
Let's take a look at another square bottle macro crop.
If you do some insane coating with this one, like four or five rounds, it looks very much like China Glaze's Watermelon Rind from last summer. When I began to look a little closer, I could tell this one also reflects some different colors in strong light- not just that beautiful tealish green, but also a little gold and blue.
One coat over Obsidian:
And those of you who are wondering what happened to my trademark photos- due to my job, I lost a corner. And I refuse to show you!
And honestly. I didn't really like this combination. Thought I'd show you anyway though. And if you're looking for a really black black shimmer polish, LA Girl Metal Obsidian is the the way to go.
