Good morning polish friends! I am going to start a 3 day review of Super Black Lacquers today! I'm excited because the polish created by Natalie is really pretty amazing! When I first browsed through her store I was immediately drawn to the holos (of course), but then I spent some time inspecting the others and she has lovely glitters and shimmers too! SBL was started in 2012 and "are 4-Free, with no Formaldehyde, Dibutyl Phthalate, Toluene, or Formaldehyde resin." I like that Natalie and her friends personally test (ie wear) the polish several times before they are offered to the polish buying public. You can check out more about Super Black Lacquers (and buy them) at the website superblacklacquers.com. You can also follow them on Facebook!
This is SBL The Whale. The Whale is described as "a medium, neutral grey creme polish, with an aqua blue iridescence." Natalie made this polish because she wanted to make a grey polish that looked good on everyone. Well, this is a truly gorgeous polish and I do think it would look great on everyone! It absolutely makes me imagine a whale swimming with light reflecting off it's skin. The aqua shimmer is stunning and very vibrant on the nail Don't you hate when the shimmer doesn't translate on the nail - NOT the case with The Whale! The Whale also seems to change from a light greay to a medium grey depending on the lighting. The Whale had a wonderfully thick and creamy formula. It was easy to apply and was thiclose to being a 1 coater! I used 2 coats for good measure and 1 layer of topcoat.
