mani monday // basic black.

Hi everyone!  Happy Monday.  I hope you had a lovely weekend.

For this week's installment of Mani Monday, I went back to basics with a black creme lacquer -- one of my standard, favorite go-to manicures.  I considered a dark almost-black purple shade called Lincoln Park After Dark by OPI (another all-time fave), but the bottle was stubbornly and firmly dried shut.  Time to invest a new one, I think!

It also might be time to invest in a new black: Orly's Liquid Vinyl, while a great shade of perfect pitch-black, seems to chip much easier than the Julep, Butter London, Illamasqua, and OPI polishes I've been wearing as of late.  (Speaking of Julep and Butter London, did you check to see who won the giant nail polish giveaway?)

So I'm considering Butter London's Union Jack Black as a replacement for Orly.  Thoughts?

  1. Love this color!


  2. Let me know when you find a good black! I used to buy my black polish from the Natural Collection range in Boots but now I live in the US I can't find it anywhere.


  3. Liquid vinyl is one of my favorite colors! It's such a beautiful black. Love the new button too!

  4. I love dark manicures =) I have a dark purple by Sally Hansen that I am in LURVE with! It's so hard for me to justify dark manicures during the summer, though so kudos to you for being bold!!

    Love it! =)
