When I wanted this black grey for the Fall and it got edged out for everyone's desire for Awakening, this one got put as the basic for the Winter collection. I LOVE this color! I can't quite pull off black. It just seems a little too teenager for me. I remember being a teenager wearing black polish because it was such a "dangerous" color. You know the color you weren't allowed to wear because only hoodlums wear...
Anyway, since I can't quite wear black without feeling like an old lady trying too hard, I decided on an almost black instead. The next question was to shimmer or not to shimmer. I temporarily ruled out the shimmer, since I have an idea for that one for later. So this is a nice rich creme. I have been wearing it all week and don't want to take it off!
It is so pretty! I LOVE this one! Ironically I think this is perfect for the summer. I really don't want to take it off! I have been wearing it for three days by the time I took this picture, so excuse the manicure and tip wear. And for those of you noticed that this was already in the Cult Nails bottle, that's because I ordered Awakening and Time Traveler together and already have this one. I'm just waiting on Hypnotize Me and Enigmatic to get here for the Fall collection. As for the winter collection, the lab is hard at work on two colors for me. Fingers crossed they can make those happen. I sent my mixes in and I am just waiting to see if they can duplicate them. Can't wait to see what they come up with!
ANYWAY...if your thinking it looks just like black, I beg to differ. So just to prove you wrong here it is with a pure black polish on the middle and pinky fingers. Now you can see that it gives you the look of a black, while softening the look. Again this is a pretty basic color, and each collection will have a basic, but I for one love basics as much as I love the more unique stuff, and did I mention I am LOVING this one right now?
So there you have it, Time Traveler! What do you think? Do you wear black polishes? The names of the other polishes if they come out as planned are: Mind Control, Truth Serum and um, oh crap I forgot the other name! Darn it! I need to find a way to travel back in time so I can remember! I hope Juan remembers cause it was awesome! LOL! Care to take a guess as to what Mind Control and Truth Serum might look like?
