Looks like Black Radiance revamped themselves a bit to be even more vampy! New bottle, shiny colors, added "Bold & Sexy" to the name. Wow. I'm feeling a little coquine....
On the left is old school - Red Ebony. Middle is Passion, right is Naughty (Coquine!)
The Red Ebony is not swatched here. I may have done it at some point in the past. It's actually one of my favorites, a nice brownish-red. Kind of luxurious.
Okay check out the package for a second.
See that "dome cut brush" thing? It's crazy, man!
They are not kidding. This thing is huge. Take the Insta-Dri brush and add two OPI brushes.
The new one is on the right. It doesn't look as big here, but that thing is 3-dimensionally huge. It's a little hard to deal with, but I have fairly small nail beds. Would probably work really well if you have wider and longer ones.
Hey, I feel really dumb, but I just found out Black Radiance is marketed for "African American Women." Hm. I didn't even guess that. I'm what should be marketed toward "Dumb Blonde." Well, their product is good and I'm going to buy it. I'll just insinuate myself into their demographic for a minute.
It's gray with just a taste of something greenish. I thought it was black. I like this, although would put on another coat; this is two. It's similar to other grey metallicy hint of color things that I have.
I love this. It's an awesome black red. I know I have something similar to this, probably Petites, but the red glitter is a lot more obvious in that. This is subtle, a real undercurrent.
Now I want to get the rest of these. The old school Red Ebony someone gave me a few years ago after I admired it and I've worn it many times. In fact, I would compare it to Essie Rock Star Skinny. These two new ones I just bought the other day at Cherry Hill Beauty Supply for $3.39 and they had more.
I love really black polishes. I keep hearing how people wish it would go out of style and I say BLACK POLISH FOREVER (or when I most feel like it!!!)
Here we are a little closer to Passion. It's what I strive for.
