my cheap dark nail polish

when i run out of my favorite dark nail polish like zoya's casey, china glaze's seduction, or opi's lincoln after dark, i opt to used this cheaper one instead. although because of the price too, and quality of its ingredients, it doesn't even last for at least 3 days. specially by frequent washing of hands. it's glossy at day one but eventually became a little matte but still fine for me. i love the color, it's not black, with just a little bit of dark plum on the edge of my nails.

looks black with only two coats

It looks plum with one coat and it looks black with two coats. You needed two coats to make it work though so you wouldn't really get the plum look on your nails. The performance is just okay. It lasted for 3 to 4 days on my fingernails. It would probably last longer on my toenails.

Not for me.

I'm expecting a great vampy purple shade. This one is an almost black shade even if my nails are under daylight. I only noticed its purple or plum color on my acetone-soaked cotton balls. Brush strokes are also an issue. You need a good topcoat to hide the flaws. Also, it's not completely free of well-known harmful ingredients. Thus, minus 2 stars.
