And the sky was made of amethyst
and all the stars look just like little fish
you should learn when to go
you should learn how to say no
(Lyrics from Violet by Hole)
This is an Estee Lauder nail polish called Black Amethyst. It was part of the fall collection. It is a dark, plummy ebony shade. The darkness is more vamp than smoke. It is a nighttime version of Zoya's Demi polish. The sheen and shine on this polish is pretty fabulous. My co-worker Gela remarked on the lacquer-like effect. My nails look like a well waxed floor. It takes just two coats to achieve the desired, highly pigmented color. One coat is more violet-like. This limited edition shade retails for $18 and is currently at your local Estee Lauder counter.
