Deadly Nightshade, Round 2

Unfortunately, the weather didn’t cooperate. It was a rainy morning in Tokyo and I wasn’t able to get any better photos of my deep blue/purple Deadly Nightshade.

But I decided to add a few interesting topcoats to show you what glitter can do over a dark creme. I’m taking these photos inside at night, so they aren’t as great as I’d like, but take a look:

This is Wet N Wild Fantasy Makers in “Black Magic.” It came out at Halloween, but seems much more New Year’s to me. It’s little glittery metallic hairs in a slightly blackened clear base. It really is a fun topcoat. Sorry about the crummy pix.

This is some navy/purple microglitter in a navy base that I picked up at Hot Topic. The color is cool, but the formula is totally craptastic. Runny, plus the bottle has that impossible-to-grip narrow cap. There’s no place to put your fingers. No wonder those kids in Hot Topic look so miserable. Give them an Orly bottle with the rubbery grip, and they’d probably start smiling. Or at least they’d have better manicures.

My pinkie is the original Deadly Nightshade, ring finger is Petites Black Amethest (a translucent black with purple microglitter- very pretty), middle finger is Sinful Colors Pearl Harbor, a green/blue iridescent glitter in a clear base, and the index finger is the Hot Topic unnamed blue.

So put some glittery topcoats over your dark fall colors. My favorite of these was probably the Wet n Wild Black Magic, and I’m bummed that it didn’t photograph better.

Nail artist. Wanderer. I'm a color-holic, in fact, it was my love of color that brought me to the nail art world. Well, that, and the fact I was too cheap to pay crazy Japanese prices for nail polish while living in Tokyo, so I had to start mixing my own. That's how NTMG began.
