Blackheart Beauty are an American brand that I came across on Twitter through Marina of Makeup4All and the minute I saw the skull shaped bottle, I began my Google quest to find out where I could pick it up from. Turns out that the only place to buy products from the brand is from the U.S and Hot Topic don't ship outside the U.S (I still don't get why U.S shops and brands don't do this yet... There's really no excuse anymore!) so I asked my cousin who was living in NYC at the time if I could get them sent to her apartment and she could bring them back for me. Well, she kindly said yes and Hot Topic had a sale on so I ordered 5 of the polishes and began the waiting process.
When they finally arrived, I got to swatching and one of the first ones that caught my eye was this...
This is 'Slaquer'
The metallic blue nail polish went on really smooth and took two coats to get an opaque finish so you don't need to worry about this being a streaky mess. The only downside is that it took a bit too long to dry between coats so I woke up with a couple of dents, which really bugs me.
Another one that I ordered was Royally Screwed:
The glittery blue nail polish is made up of tiny particles of glitter and bigger round glitter discs so I layered it on top of Slaquer to see how they would match up. I have to admit, I'm slightly disappointed with the glittery polish because it isn't as dense as I would have liked it to be and there's not a lot of glitz to do it so I'm thinking that it might look better on top of a black or white polish. Similar to the previous shade, the glitter went on really smoothly and didn't drag so there weren't blobs of glitter pooling together and it didn't take ages to dry either. All in all, I quite like the polishes and for $5.00 each ($2.50 when I got them) you really can't go wrong.
You can buy Blackheart Beauty products from Hot Topic stores across the U.S or online from their website.
