The New Black is a set of polishes that help create the PERFECT Ombre look. For those of you who are not familiar with ombre: colors either digressing or progressing in shades. The New Black is available at www.nordstrom.com or www.sephora.com. I love the fact that they provide you with a set of shades, so that you don’t have to go out and buy them separately or try to figure it out on your own.
The first set I decided to try was Haze, an ombre set of gorgeous, mouth-watering purples.
As you can see, they digress or progress (depending on which way you look!) into a darker (or lighter) shade of purples.
The polishes are pigmented highly, which is a bonus since you have to use 5 different bottles of polish. That means if you’re careful, you can coat your nails with 1 coat of each. I wasn’t able to coat a nail with 1 coat because the brush was a little slender and small. I did, however, manage to stop at 2 coats.
The 2nd set I used was the Runway Collection. This was a set of 8 Rainbow colors, so I did 2 different manicures using 5 each. These polishes were also wonderfully pigmented and only really needed 2 coats MAXIMUM. I love the fact that you can just customize a manicure with these sets without really having to go through your stash!
