Essence Effect Nail Polish 32 The Black Cat

sreda, maj 27, 2015


In the last years there has been an influx of different nail polish effects and finishes. I've tried the matt effects already, but I never had the chance to try the latex effect and I didn't expect it to be so close to the real thing. I actually got this nail polish to fix scuff marks on bags and purses, which might sound odd to you, but it worked.

Compared to their Black is Back nail polish, this has a thinner formula and yet just like at that one, two coats were enough for full opacity. For some reason it took a lot of coats on the nail wheel to reach full opacity, but I don't know what that is about because on the nails it performs ok. It takes a while to completely dry into a matte-latex finish and then it looks like medicinal gloves, but in a black version. 

The brush was nice to work with as with most Essence nail polishes and it general the nail polish performed above my expectations. I got it in Müller for  1.49 €


 Have a great day!

  1. This looks very nice, It accually reminds me of the leather effect nailpolish from P2. That also keeps me away from buying this one because they are so similar. But then again the price is very cheap for this one.

    1. Well, if you already have a similar one, then you don't need it :) Unless you'd like to compare the two :)

  2. Oh, I really like this one! It finish is so interesting, and it doesn't look too streaky either! Maybe the colour is harder to get opaque on the wheel because it doesn't have the 'background' that is your finger? :) I don't know, hehe.

    1. It's surprisingly non streaky for a matte nail polish :). The other matte one I own from Rimmel leaves so many ridges on the nails.
      I guess it just doesn't work well on plastic :)

  5. I like that finish :-) Though glossy is probably still my favorite for black nail polishes.

  6. Tale je pa tudi meni všeč. Eden izmed redkih 'effect' lakov ki jih sploh nosim. :)
