Where did all that time go again? I’ve been poorly, my fridge broke and I’ve been stressing out in general. Also I decided that having a half-finished knit-crochet combination beret is ridiculous and finished that up.
And then I realised that it’s been a while since I posted anything. So here’s Maybelline Colorama 677 Blackout:
Blackout is a stark black crème polish, dense and easily opaque in two coats. It’s absolutely nummy.
I found it rather easy to apply, the viscosity is quite average and makes the polish easy to handle. Blackout was even and free of streaks after two coats. The brush is fairly narrow, flat, and cut straight with soft bristles.
This is a really good basic black, recommended.
Here’s Blackout in two coats with top coat:
Last time I added an out of focus glitter frankenpolish pic just to have a pretty photo in my post. The glitter in question was layered over Blackout. Here’s an in-focus shot:
On a side note, I finally got around to pick up a few CDs I’ve wanted for a while (yeah, I know, I’m a dinosaur, but I just like having the physical album and extracting mp3s myself). So far I’m enjoying Showroom of Compassion a lot (huuuge CAKE fan), La Roux is unsurprisingly awesome, and Hang Cool Teddy Bear has me really surprised. It’s … weird, especially if one is mostly familiar with Steinman-era Meat Loaf. I’ll have to listen to all three albums a few more times to really wrap my head around them or something. :-D
