Polish - OPI Baby It's Coal Outside

I have had this polish for such a long time and this is the first time I've tried it...

I purchased this polish because I saw it on a person working at Hausfeld's who was using it as a base color with OPI Happy Anniversary on top of it. The color turned out to be this lavender sparkly goodness I had to have it. Of course, I never got the companion color and we all know I don't have the patience for layering. So it was an ill-fated purchase, due to sit in my Helmer for nearly a year before I finally decided to use it.

Deep black with silver glitter/shimmer. Honestly, this color feels like a sucker punch to Chanel Black Satin. I know  many people complained when Black Satin came out that the beautiful shimmer in the bottle didn't really come out on the nail. Well, if you ever wanted that silver shimmer/glitter black, then Baby It's Coal Outside is for you.

I believe I used three coats just to be on the safe side here.

Over Qtica Nail Growth Stimulator and topped with Seche Vite, AWESOME!!!

Bottom Line
If black polish colors are your thing, this should be in your drawer.
