Bobbi Brown Black Pearl Nail Varnish: NOTD

This nail varnish from Bobbi Brown is an absolute beauty, but boy is it a nightmare to photograph! This is a black polish with a silver shimmer/pearl effect running through it and it’s gorgeous! Not only the colour, but the formula is amazing too.
It only took one coat to get a decent cover – which is amazing for such a dark polish. I did add a second coat just to make it really dark and have a bit extra staying power but I was really impressed with just the one. This lasted a good few days before the tip wear was a bit more noticeable – but it was chip free until I removed it. After a couple of days I added a coat of the OPI Man With A Golden Gun topcoat, which was amazing but I don’t have a great photo to share so will have to wait and do a whole separate blog post on that little indulgence…
But as for this polish, seriously impressed. Looking forward to seeing more nail offerings from the Bobbi Brown line – they used to have a nail range, but this was discontinued, but rumour has it there are some shades coming back…exciting!
