Hi everyone! Today’s manicure comes from Blackheart Beauty. I’ve been seeing these skull nail polish bottles posted around some of the Facebook groups and I had to check them out for myself! You can find this brand at Hot Topic stores (and online I think). When I went in the store last week they were buy one get one free, so that came to just $2.50 each. I was hoping to find some of the “Galaxy” ones (they are holographic) but my store only had one of those, so I picked up five others, mostly these “Iridescent” ones. They are so pretty! I am not affiliated with Hot Topic or Blackheart Beauty.
Today I have on Blue Iridescent. This is a bright, Caribbean water blue with a purple shimmer that flashes at certain angles in certain light. It is not an overpowering flash, but you will see and notice the shift. There is also a brighter blue micro glitter that really stands out and sparkles. Some of my photos look kind of bumpy, but this dries very smooth and only needs one coat of topcoat.
I did three coats. Two coats looked good on my shorties, but if you have longer nails two coats would have visible nail line. The formula was really good. I did add just a couple drops of nail polish thinner. I was not a big fan of the brush. It is a good size, but mine was kind of wonky in shape and it’s “mop like” if you know what I mean. It is manageable, just not my personal favorite brush.
I’m really loving the finished mani though! It’s nice and bright!

Would love to see swatches of the other colors you got at Hot Topic. I like this shade of blue and the finish. I’ve been looking for it.
