I only bought Black Onyx last year. I used to wear a lot of black in my late teens and had moved away from the hardness that it provides in recent years, but decided I needed it in my life again. I trust OPI to produce a good quality product and this was no exception: perfect coverage in two even coats, glossy finish, good drying time, long wear, excellent brush... all the things I have come to expect from them.
As I was taking the photos below, I was wondering what to write about this nail varnish. What can you say about a black creme? Then I remembered that it's not all about Rock/Punk/Goth nails, there is so much you can do with black!
Black is great for Nail Art and also serves as a perfect base for some finishes such as duochromes and flakies. You can use it on French tips for a twist on the traditional white and it's a safe colour for pedis.
Even if you're not a black lover like I am, I think every woman should own one good quality black polish.
