The New Black Glimmer Twins – Black Ice
Hi guys! Happy Weekend! Today I have a small review for you as well as a simple nail art. I got these awesome nail polishes from The New Black and I must say I am quite impressed. I have seen these being reviewed on other blogs and I always thought they had a really cute packaging and lovely shaped bottles. When I tried the polishes myself I was amazed at the quality and the ease of applying.
The first set I am showing you today is called Black Ice and it is part of the Glimmer Twins collection.This set comes with two nail polishes: shiny black and glittery/shimmery black. They are both gorgeous and the application was a dream. I rarely paint my nails black, because I always end up with a big mess and flooded cuticles, so I was a bit nervous, while painting my nails yesterday. But it actually wasn’t as bad! The brush is quite small, which I really like and it makes the application so much easier. You can maneuver the brush right next to your cuticle without flooding it.
I made a really simple nail art using these two Glimmer Twins. First I painted my nails black and waited till they dry completely. Then I used my striping tape to tape a small triangle at the top of my nail and filled it in with the shimmery black. I covered everything with the top coat and added a small, round stud. I thought that the shimmery triangle would stand out a bit more, but I still quite like how this design come out. It’s subtle, but with an edge.
Look at this cute packaging! I think The New Black did an amazing job with designing it. Make sure to check their other Glimmer Twins sets. They have an amazing color range.
I do hope you like these. Let me know your thoughts in the comment section below.
