I chose to use Color Club Dark Romance, which is a mini that came in the Dark Romance Mini Matte collection. It's black and it dries satin, but it still dries just as quickly as a normal matte would. Win. I didn't take a picture of that one on its own. If you want to see it, check out Scrangie's review of the collection. Then I added a coat of Wet n Wild Prancer, which is this wonderful glitter polish out for the holidays. Round-ish and tiny red glitter suspended in a clear base. Then I added a coat of Seche.
I love this. It's so pretty. The red glitter looks like embers burning through the surface of the black polish. I found Prancer at Walgreens. It was $1.99 and came attached to a clear Wet n Wild polish. Dark Romance is a great option for a one-coat black. Even if you don't like the whole satin/matte finish, you can put shiny topcoat on it and you'll be fine. I think a good one-coat color is difficult to find.
I can see an end in sight. I'm almost finished with my paper. I just have to write a conclusion. After my presentation on Tuesday I'll feel so much better about life. It's snowing right now and I put on my Christmas music this morning while I was getting ready to go to the library, so I think I'm getting into the spirit of things. If I can just make it to Friday without my brain imploding I'll be in the clear. Gah, school! Why you so hard?
