The Absolutely Best Black Nail Polish EVER!!!

So I love to keep my nails fresh and well manicured. I especially love the gel nail polishes, but I am a bit skeptical of the constant UV lights on my hands. Also, while better than acrylic, I still believe that gel nails can do a small amount of damage to your natural nails. Recently, I decided to take a break from the two-week manicure and go back to polishing my natural nails. Here's the problem: They chip too soon! There's nothing worse than a nail with exposed tips.

Well up until recently, I strayed away from black polishes because they chips so easily and it was very noticeable (at least to me). Then comes this gem, Sinful Colors Black on Black.

All I can say is that this polish is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! It applies rather opaque and I actually only needed one coat. Yeap, one coat for perfectly covered black nails. That's unheard of. However, because I am the person that I am, I decided to go with two coats of this color, just for a little added intensity. (I really didn't notice a difference, but it made me happy to try.) I did notice that the color took a while to dry completely (i.e. no scratches or smudges deep down) but I was perfectly content watching a movie so it really didn't matter.

I have washed dishes in bleach, taken long, soaking baths, even washed my hair and this black stayed stuck to my nails for a minimum of 4 days. Maybe it doesn't seem like a lot, but I'm very rough on my hands and 4 days is outrageous. Even "14 day no-chip" gel manicures only get about 6 days on my nails. I did apply the Sinful Colors Nail harder as a base and a Sally Hansen Hard as Nails as a top coat for shine.

This IS absolutely the best black nail polish EVER!
