Happy Saturday morning!
Today I’ve got CND’s Blackjack to show you with the effects. There is definitely a difference in Blackjack compared to some of the lighter colors with the effects, as you’ll see.
A couple people had requested that I also show you what the effects look like over my bare nail so you could see them on their own. I was happy to oblige, so I’ll show you those swatches soon!
Oh and I forgot to actually take a picture of Blackjack on it’s own so to let you know, it’s basically a solid black creme. I used two coats.
Blackjack with Ice Blue Shimmer on thumb, Sapphire Sparkle on pointer, Amethyst Sparkle on middle, Emerald Shimmer on ring and Jade Sparkle on pinky.
Because Blackjack is a solid black color the effects came out either deeper or brighter with this one. It’s pretty interesting how it works depending on the polish color!
Blackjack with Ice Blue Shimmer
Ice Blue Shimmer is a deeper blue with Blackjack underneath. I love this.
Blackjack with Sapphire Sparkle
Sapphire Sparkle also has a more blue/black effect.
Blackjack with Amethyst Sparkle
Same goes for Amethyst Sparkle, just darker.
Blackjack with Emerald Shimmer
Emerald Shimmer was the only one that came out much brighter! It also looks a lot more green than with some of the other polish colors.I love the way this looks.
Blackjack with Jade Sparkle
Jade Sparkle looks pretty much the same as it did on some of the other dark polishes I swatched, but with a slightly more “olive” cast to it.
Watch out for the final (for now) installment in my CND Colour Effects week long series!
