HEMA - 850.

This is an old goodie from good old HEMA (do the caps make it seem like I'm screaming the name? Because it does when I read over it in my head and oddly enough I find it hilarious).

This polish is a solid black with subtle blue shimmer. This also can classify itself as a favourite. A go-to when I'm feeling vampy yet ready to party. Which is... well, always. It reminds me of a very cold winter night - just how I like 'em. The shimmer is hard to capture on camera (what else is new) so hence the close-up at the bottom of this post. 

It was part of a Christmas collection from 2011 I think, so I rushed to get a backup. Funny enough it became permanent and my backup is nowhere to be found. I don't know what that means, but I'm sure it's a message from the universe I have yet to decipher. 

Quality: typical HEMA. 2-3 Coats to get full opacity. It can go with two, but I can't handle it when I hold my finger into the light and I discover transparant spots - it just grinds my gears, man. Drying time mediocre, lasting time 3-4 days. All in all nothing special formula wise, but the shade is very rare. Can't come up with a dupe. 

Combined with Essence base coat and Catrice top coat, as always. Keeping it cheapy.
