YSL "Black Indigo"

"Black Indigo" is part of YSL's "New Blacks" collection which also contains two other nail polishes, namely "Black Bronze" & "Black Lapiz" which I'll show you within the next few days.

From YSL: "Incandescent pearl blends with black to reveal the radiant colors that grow bolder on the nail with unexpected reflections of fake blacks."

"Black Indigo" is a blackened purple (rather than indigo - at least IMO- my BF insists it looks blue in the shade...) & therefore - as the name suggests - almost black, but still with the most delicate hint of purple & amazing sparkle when the sun hits it.
Last year I would have dismissed such shades as "boring", but this year I love them! Tastes change & that's a good thing in my book ;-) Otherwise I'd have missed this awesome collection.

It was so hard to capture the lovely sparkle, so please bear with me as my pic doesn't have the best quality:

YSL polishes have the best quality ever & they always look so elegant! 
Their formula is definitely on the thick side, but not thick as in "goopy", but rather as in "creamy & rich". Out of habit, I did two coats, but you really only need one. The polish glides on the nail & is simply a pleasure to apply.

Thanks for looking :-)
