Last photo slightly over-exposed to show the base color - which I love. I believe this was two coats, and I loved everything about this polish. Color, application, actually wearing it during the day. I know some are not feeling these "almost black" colors, but I do. I love knowing it's not really black, even if some may believe it is. Though I do think it doesn't look all that black if decent light is present. This is a vampy that suits me perfectly. It's my favourite nail polish color, and it's elegant.
Also, I happen to like the name because it reminds me of my teens. Back when I was constantly checking up on the metal underground movement and saw to that I had the most talked about demos and fanzines - and Near Dark was just that, the name of one of the Swedish metal fanzines. I had a friend with whom I thoroughly kept track of what was happening, and it just so happened that we used to be penpals, you know, back in the day when people were exchanging snail mail, with one each of the two guys responsible for the Near Dark mag. And it just so happened that one of the guys later on kinda sorta introduced my SO and I to each other. And the rest is, like they say, history.
Swedish word of the day:
tonår -noun teens
We have all been there.
