Groove Thang...

Hello again lovelies! This is what I had on a couple of days back - another from "The Haul" - Colour Club's Groove Thang!

It looked awesome in the bottle - I couldn't wait to try this! Green and purple duochrome shimmer on black! YUM!

Unfortunately... it wasn't. On my nails it just looked plain black - maybe a tiny, tiny, tiiiiiny, hint of colours if I pressed my nails into my eyeballs... I was disappointed. I might try this with matte and see what happens at a later stage.

Excuse my insanely crappy photos today - I was desperate to capture the colours!

Oh well! I can never have too much black polish! (My previous bottle had turned to glug city - adding thinner just made it separate and... uh... chunks... ew...)

Thess - its really REALLY subtle. You know when you have an amazing colour and it turns out bleh on camera? This is the opposite. o_O

Kaz - I don't know if its just me, but I wore mine all day in the (Australian) sun (it's summer here!) and NOTHING. It just looked black. Jai laughed cos I got so excited and got it on and said "POOP" then rain outside and yelled "POOP" he though it hilarious. I didn't.

I used to be all about those polishes that are dark and shimmery...and then I'd put it on my nails and they'd just look black. WTF?! Now I know better. =)
It still looks good on you! It's like a black np with a twist.
