Now I am going to feature ManGlaze‘s black polish which is called The Death Tar vs other black’s in my collection. Like their grey polish, Fuggen Ugly, I had no problems with the formula, it was smooth and wonderful. Below are pics of it with and without a Seche top coat.
The Death Tar – Natural light no top coat
As you can see this is a dull black finish. Great color I think but wait until you see it with a top coat!
The Death Tar – Sun with top coat
NOW you see what I’m talking about! SUPER glittery and wonderful with a Seche top coat! This has turned into my favorite black polish, even beating out Chanel Black Satin. And I can even go as far as to say that this formula was better than the Black Satin I have, which was a bit thicker and harder to apply evenly. Keep in mind that this glitter is multi-colored and Chanel’s is just silver (and much finer). I love it!
As with the grey color comparisons I did, you can see the ManGlaze one is very glittery and it really stands out. It only took 2 coats to get it fully opaque. Chanel’s Black Satin took 3 coats and is a deeper black with much finer silver glitter. Borghese’s Notte Black was an almost exact dupe to Chanel’s, also taking 3 coats. In fact I could not see any different in person between these two and would say buy the Borghese one if you want to save money (only $8.00). Having said that, their brush was horrendously wide and harder to manage than Chanel’s. Finally I wanted to show Essie Licorice which is a shiny jet black creme. No glitter or shimmer in it, but a really beautiful deep black. Once again ManGlaze wound up being my favorite of these swatches, which really surprised me!
Vamp it up!
