Welcome to Thursday, which is normally the last post of the week but since I wasn't around for Shitty Nail Art Monday, I'll be around tomorrow. This post is a little bit boring but I realized I haven't highlighted this basic yet. Here's OPI Black Onyx, which I use for almost anything and everything: base colours, alone, in skittles, nail art - this one is good to go.
OPI Black Onyx is a black creme. Application and formula is smooth and slick, and you get opaque coverage after two coats. It is not so thick that it needs any sort of "self-leveling" properties. I think it's the perfect viscosity for a black creme, but I would honestly expect it as I would be paying the OPI premium to have it. Here's my swatch in two coats, sans top coat:
Really easy black creme, and I honestly would expect this kind of performance with the OPI brand name. It may seem like a waste to get a basic colour with a "brand name" but this has really kept up. I bought this in 2010 and it's still as good as new.
Do you have a basic black creme? It is a must have for the polish to be a one coater, or will two do just fine? Let me know your favourite brand for basics! I'll see y'all tomorrow.
