GOT Black Shine?
For today's Golden Oldie challenge, I take an older black and pair it with an older flakie. And they are better together than they ever were apart.
When I first started getting back into nail polish, I thought OPI was the be-all, best polish. Surely, they must have the best black polish, right? OPI Black Onyx is probably the worst black polish I own. Thin, streaky, and takes more coats than any other polish to get that nice, shiny, black finish.
Even Wet 'n Wild Black Creme is better. Mind.Blown.
Essie Shine Of The Times is one of a dozen polishes that has this multi-chrome flakie finish. Pretty on its own, but it takes a dark base to really ply all her secrets.
Red, orange, gold, and green..
Oh, how it glows. Lit-from-within, you might say. Love these types of polishes. They were my first polish loves, and helped inspire the name of this blog.

What's your favorite thing to pair with black?
