Emerald black, I believe, has been around for a little while. It's still available as a part of the Beetlejuice collection and I have to say, it did remind me of the blackened green carapace of a beetle. I was asked a couple of times if it was black, but it's not. It's definitely dark. it's definitely duo-chrome, but it's not black. It's blackened...the website describes this collection as "oil slick", which is a pretty apt description.
This, though..really kind of not worth it. I don't know how this happened, I just looked down and there was a big chunk of lacquer missing.
And I can't believe I didn't get a bottle shot for you. Huh. I'm sorry about that!
I hope you enjoy this one. Models Own is having a big sale right now, you should check into it.
I would but I've put myself on a pretty strict no-buy. I am still picking up limited editions, like the Deborah Lippmann True Blood set, and I'm hoping to scrape together $15 plus shipping for the always great China Glaze Halloween set this year, but I'm trying to keep it to a dull roar.
Next up: my nod to last Friday's James Bond anniversary. *wink wink*
