When Pitch Black Glimmer came out last year, I was still holding pretty firm to my conviction that I didn't need any more of their awkwardly-shaped bottles in my Helmers. By the time I decided I needed to stop discriminating against them so I wouldn't miss out on some interesting colors and finishes, this black and silver and holo glitter was long gone from Target stores around here. Turtlechick to the rescue! She sent me Pitch Black Glimmer in a swap we did last month, thus saving me from being tempted to violate my principles and pay crazy eBay prices for it. Thanks, turtlechick!
I'm still working through my black glitter issues, so I chose a dark-ish base for my first outing with this NOPI. Owl's Lust is from L'Oreal's Project Runway collection; it's a dark red creme which covered in two coats. Here are a couple of a progress shots before I put on the glitter (or did a proper cleanup job):
I added only one coat of Pitch Black Glimmer to the red (I don't want to use it up too fast, not that I've used up a bottle of color in the last decade or more) then added my usual Sally Hansen Insta Dri topcoat.
I never can find a graceful way to hold that goofy bottle.
I love the multi-colored flashes from the holo glitter in this.
By the end of the four days I had it on, I wished I'd used a slightly lighter base color so the black glitter would have shown up more. I call that progress.
