None More Black

Hello, Fireflies!

This month's NCC theme is Music/Movies/TV, and I had to go with one of my fave movies.. about a (fake) band - that also happened to have some great music - Spinal Tap!

If you're a fan, you know that the album they put out during the movie is a completely black album:



So, of course, I had to do a completely black mani!  This is my fave one-coat black, Cult Nails Nevermore.

I've seen versions of this mani where people use combinations of matte and glossy polishes in the same color, so I dotted Cult Nails Fetish, a wax-finish black, on top.  It kinda looks like my mani got the measles...

Which is kinda apropo for This Is Spinal Tap, really.  It's not like I could make my mani spontaneously combust.

This is a pretty black mani.  I mean, how much more black could it be?
