Blackened Bleu is a sheer black, packed with blue shimmer.

I know a lot of people who love dark colors on short nails, so this was the first thing I reached for. It is gorgeous, isn't it? It applies really nicely, but is pretty sheer and needs dark undies. I used two coats to boost the sparkle and depth.

I don't think I'd quite call them dupes, but it reminds me of Nicole By OPI Too Rich For You, though bluer. If you pine for it, Blackened Bleu would be a good substitute.
I want my nails back!!! Waaaaah!! It's gonna be a crappy couple of weeks for me before I really start liking them again. I'm not sure how much swatching I'll be doing while they're stumpy. I do have a lot of unpublished stuff to fall back on, so I'll still be posting, but the pile of new stuff to be swatched is probably gonna just keep grown. Dammit.
On a less whiny note, I took photos of pretty much all of the polish listed on my spreadsheet. You can see my obsession here.
