Black with Magic Sparkles

From Wet’nWild’s Megalast collection: Blackmail…

This is right after I broke my ring finger nail…past the quick.  Ugh.  So I cut the others to match.  But what a freak my thumb looks!  Well, here it is…warts and all.

Blackmail is a black that has minuscule glitter in teal and orangy-pink.  Little squaty bottle with a stubby brush.  The brush itself is fine, it’s the neck that’s stubby.

Polished up great after 2 coats.  First coat didn’t give me any promises though.  Very watery.

Then I realized, I might have a dupe on hand!  So I got out Sally Hansen’s ‘Midnight in NY’ from the Complete Salon Manicure collection.  I removed the polish from my index and ring finger to compare…

Can’t tell the difference here…

Ahhh…at last a photo showing you the colors in the bottles.  It seems that the WNW has more glitter.  However, on my nails, I tried and tried to see a difference.  So, I’m putting my neck out and saying they are a dupe, color-wise.

The Midnight in NY applied evenly and gave a better 1-coat polish.  I still did 2 coats, however, as 1 coat wasn’t quite perfect.  Both have 1 coat of Seche Clear and Seche Vite.

Any experiences with either of these?  Do they look like dupes to you?
