SUPER BLACK Nail Laquer by Natalie Dee

Oh-muhgawd. I’m a bit too tired at the moment to dive in deep here with words…BUT, I simply can’t wait any longer to share this nail polish that I picked up from Wholly Craft a few weekends ago. I first became aware of SUPER BLACK on Instagram—I regret that I can’t remember whose feed—and decided to give it a whirl when I found myself standing in front of some boxes for sale. Pay no attention to the cuticles you’re about to see…and instead allow yourself to be mesmerized by shinier objects.

Here, I’m wearing two coats of “The Bends”. Directions suggest three coats on bare nails…but I really love how a little transparency shows off the dramatic scale of big and chunky white glitter mixed in with tiny, tiny dark speckles. Apply a good top coat; it helps with shine and thus, enhances the deep turquoise hue. Personally, I think this is a great winter shade (think Polar Plunge), as well as a warm-weather shade (trying not to dream of sunny beaches too soon over here, peeps).

Each box comes with a paper insert—complete with a how–to for removing glitter polish and all the deets on these laquers, which are “handmade in small batches” at Natalie’s home in Columbus. SUPER BLACK is free of Formaldehyde, DBP, Toluene, Formaldehyde Resin and Camphor.

Look how cute that signed note is! I haven’t thrown away the box or the packaging yet because I know she put her heart into it. Duh, it’s right there in silver ink. You can also find Natalie’s comic work here on Tumblr at nataliedeecomics.com.

Note: oh no! The Fall 2012 Collection is SOLD OUT online. In the mean time, I’d contact Wholly Craft to see if there’s anything left in stock, and find SUPER BLACK Lacquer on Facebook to keep up-to-date on the upcoming spring line.

    If I was the kind of dude who’s stylish enough paint his nails, I would wear the hell out of some Super Black. I’d do it...
