Hello lovelies! I have a special polish to share with you today that supports a very important cause. With everyone still aching from the loss of beloved actor Robin Williams to suicide, Noelie wanted to do something for others that might be fighting for their lives and looking a reason to keep going. September is national Suicide Awareness Month and Smitten Polish has created a very special and complex polish that will donate $6 of each bottle sold to the AFSP (American Foundation for Suicide Prevention). Out of the Darkness will be available in September only (as of this moment) and pre-sales start on the 5th at 2:00pm Central.

Out of the Darkness is a gorgeous dark, yet bright purple base polish full of fuchsia, green and blue metallic and holo micro glitters. There is also some color shifting that I can see in the blue/green micro glitters. I reached complete full coverage in 2 coats but I've somehow become accustomed to using 3 so I did a 3rd...mind you it wasn't necessary. The formula was great - I love that Out of the Darkness is a full coverage polish but the glitters still sparkle through. Out of the Darkness is a little hungry so I ended up using 2 coats of topcoat, though if you used a thick gel coat or Gelous you should be good to go with 1 layer.
I also included some pictures with a matte topcoat. I love how Out of the Darkness gets this soft focus finish. You can really see all the glitters when Out of the Darkness is mattified. Which way do you like it better...shiny or matte?
