Don't be scared of black polishes, they are beautiful and elegant, as is my Nails Inc Maddox Street. The shimmer lifts the shade and makes is look charcoal, I think it's an incredibly chic finish. Applied very well, this is 3 coats with top coat. The shade has been around for quite a while but not seen often enough. Don't get me wrong I love my pastels and my brights, but sometimes you just need a bit of smoulder! To the Pics!!!
