Black and Gold "Color Block"

Ok it's not really color block so much as just half-and-half, but whatever.  First I'll show you the BEST black polish I've ever owned, then I'll show you the mani.
OMG!!  I don't even think I need to include anymore photos of this one.  No matter how I turn it, it's packed so full of silver shimmer, there's no point.  This is my one and only BBCouture polish, and it was on my Wish List for the longest time until someone emailed me saying they had a ton of polish I wanted for swap.  She fulfilled about 4 of my wants and then added more.  Thanks Kim!!

I have to say on the nail, it's not even this amazing.  I mean there is shimmer, but you don't really know how much until you photograph it and BAM!  Oh and you want to know the best part about it...IT'S A ONE COATER!!  This is such a blessing for me because I LOVE black polish, but I always have to apply at least 2 coats and it still usually looks patchy or streaky.  Then when it comes time for removal, it seems I've got black everywhere.  So this is now one of my all time favorite polishes.
I couldn't just leave well-enough alone, could I?  I usually can't and then I end of ruining a perfectly gorgeous polish/manicure.  But this time, I LOVE IT!  I just used Love&Beauty Gold Plated (can you believe I spent an entire day looking up the real names of these F21 polishes?  I hated just saying "gold" or "blue glitter".) and painted half of my nail with one coat as well.  Then I added some dots and I'm good to go.

I'm anxious to know what you all think of my new favorite black!  Just leave your comments below and you know I'll reply!  I love reading what you all have to say.
