Blackheart Beauty Shimmer Satin Matte nail polish swatch + review

Purchased by Me buttonPolishes used:
Blackheart Beauty Shimmer Satin Matte, 2 coat and no top coat. Formula on this is thicker and it dries super fast. As I was using this under another polish (to be shown soon!), I wasn’t too worried about how well it looked – or didn’t look.

Blackheart Beauty is so creative with the name of their polishes aren’t they? 😀

Dry marble nail art with essie, Polish ‘M, Blackheart Beauty

Purchased by Me buttonPolishes used:
essie Jamaica Me Crazy
Polish ‘M La Magie
Blackheart Beauty Iridescent Peacock

I used a dry marble method for this manicure; I dabbed each polish on a piece of saran wrap, marbled them, then let them alone to dry. Once dry, I peeled them up and placed them on my nails. It’s freaking messy, even with peel off latex barrier!

Purchased by Me buttonPolishes used:
Fancy Gloss Mystery Box Prototype 2016, 2 coats and no top coat, almost a OCW
BlackHeart Beauty AB Stargazer, gradient with top coat

I wore this for my anniversary dinner that was back in February. My husband actually picked out the Fancy Gloss – and I kicked myself for not using it earlier. It’s just so pretty. I paired it with the glitter for a bit of bling. 😉

So while I was swatching the new Zodiac nail polishes from Hot Topic (still no luck with the Sagittarius though!), I thought that Virgo looked really familiar! I decided to pull out my bottle of OPI We’ll Always Have Paris Suede and do a little comparison.

In the bottle, they look super similar, right? The BhB is a little cooler and silvery than the OPI.  Continue reading
