Why Do I Buy Black Nail Polish?

I like black nail polish on other people but I NEVER like it on myself. So why do I buy it? I have no idea.

Anyways...I didn't fight to get the glitter out in this black jelly. I just stuck my brush in and slapped in on the nail. I feel like that's more accurate than digging around to get a lot of glitter.

Orly - Androgynie (2 Coats)


Added a coat of Essie - Matte About You


There's lots of glitter, so I might try this again and actually work to get it out, but maybe not because, as previously stated, I don't like black. Lol.

Love, Bethany

  1. You could try it over a nice brown. Since it looks kinda brown with the matte coat anyway that might look nice. :)

  8. I have this polish as well. And I fought to get the glitter out, but didn't succeed! My mani looked approximately like yours do :D
    I was very disappointed over the lack of glitter. :)

  13. Every time I see black on another girl, I think "oh, that looks edgy and fun! I'll do that later!" And when I put it on, my fingers looks stubby and thick. Every time!

  14. Looks really nice matte. And if you want to wear black polish, wear black polish. I'm sure no one else is thinking that it looks bad on you. :P

  15. I like a nice shiny black cream. It can be very stunning. This one is not for me.

  16. Hahaha, oh, this is so like me! I like how black polish looks in theory and on others, but when I buy a bottle I put it on and go... "meh". I must admit, I do like how Androgynie looks made matte.

  17. I feel the same way! I think black polish looks so chic...on everyone else! It reminds me too much of my rebellious days when that's all I wore. I like color too much now!

  18. I like this a lot with the glitter mixed in! It looks like it'd make a perfect base of a galaxy mani or something! ^.^

    1. I thought the same thing! It looks like a sky with tiny gold glitter as stars and the big glitter as planets!
