Forever 21 Black Magic

Forever 21 Black Magic coverHere comes the broken record: I am seriously loving Forever 21 nail polishes! I’ve tried two polishes in addition to Black Magic; Mint Chip and Cosmic Matter, and I loved both of them. But I have to say, Black Magic might be my favorite!

Black Magic is a textured (or sand lacquer…) blackened purple with gold and purple glitter. It is very similar to Julep Glam Roc though the two aren’t dupes. Black Magic is a touch warmer due to the presence of more gold.

The formula is lovely. I used just two coats in my swatches and found this polish, as with most textured polishes, wears very well.

I really am continually impressed not only by the wide range of nail polish offerings from Forever 21 but the quality of the polishes. This polish was $2.80. Quite a bargain for such an awesome polish!

My only complaint is Forever 21 can’t seem to keep their nail polishes in stock! As I’m writing this post Black Magic is sold out though they seem to restock and sell out of polishes constantly so it’s worth checking the website or looking for Black Magic in stores.

Make sure to check out the swatches under the jump! Including a couple of pictures in the sun.

I discovered Molly Coddled when I was putting together my Spring 2014 Must Have Polishes post. So when Ulta had their 2 for […] Continue reading →

Essie Fashion Playground

Essie Fashion Playground cover While I adore Style Hunter, this polish is the standout from Essie’s Spring 2014 Hide & Go Chic collection. Essie describes Fashion Playground as a pistachio shimmer. While this polish does have shimmer it’s super subtle. It just keeps the polish from being completely flat. The color is great. There’s no warm or yellow undertones […] Continue reading →
