Yeesh, doesn’t that sound final? Also sounds like an affliction a Jedi might suffer from. Emo Ren, for instance? Now, there’s a dude who is ALWAYS suffering from a major case of Creeping Darkness. Hot, tantrum-y weirdo.
Ahem! Sorry, we’re not here to discuss the light and the dark side. Rather, we’re here to discuss this fun polish that morphs from the light to the dark, and back again (hey, just like…!) This is Colores de Carol’s Blackest Soul, a duo-thermal holographic topper that morphs from an ethereal, silvery nude, to a deep, rainbow-speckled charcoal.
Two coats over any base polish will give that colour a neat, ombre-type effect as it darkens to black towards the tips of your nails, but I like Blackest Soul as is – it lends your manicure a very cool, sooty-and-smudgy kind of look.
I nabbed Blackest Soul from Polish Pickup during their October pre-order, along with this quartet of cuticle oils from Northern Star Polish that smell like all your favourite Halloween treats (with the exception of Clown Tears; that one smells like cinnamon hearts, which is DEFINITELY a Valentine’s Day thing.) They’re nice and nourishing, a good blend of oils to keep your hands happy and your cuticles calm.
