Ladies and gentlemen, I give you, Black Dahlia
…. so much *sniff
I made this polish by starting off with TKB Glamour base. I then added multiple drops of TKB Black Nail Polish Colorant (I lost count so I suggest doing a couple drops at a time and checking opacity as you go), one medium scoop of TKB Marinda Star glass fleck (which shifts from gold to red to purple), and finally, one and a half small scoops of holo powder that I bought in a group buy.

Light box swatch. You can see some of the purple glass fleck peeking through!
Believe it or not, the polish is actually more linear and holo-y in person and the glass fleck added a subtle something extra! Swatches show two coats no top coat. Formula was buttery smooth and surprisingly, I didn't have any dragging issues (as some holos tend to have). Dry time was average to a smudge above average. But I don't care, I LOVE it :)
Well that's all for Black Dahlia, hopefully you are as enamored with it as I am! Hope to see you around next time! But until then, remember to keep it classy and creative!
