XOXO Nails - Black Magic gets Scandalous with Cult Nails!

Hello Ladies and Gentlemen!! How are you!?  WELCOME to all my new friends here!! I couldn't be more excited to share with you and appreciate your support!!  I am pretty excited to have reached over 600 people!  I am so thankful to continue to grow in this community!  And if you haven't heard, I do have a giveaway going on, so please go check it out - Sephora - It's Real.

Today I have a gorgeous polish to show you, called Black Magic.  It can be applied to pretty much any color for instant nail art! LOVE it!  So I decided to use Scandalous by Cult Nails as my base!  It's a coral color, kind of pink/orange.  You can see my previous review of it HERE.  For this mani, I was able to get away with 2 thick coats for a base.  I then applied 1 coat of Black Magic by XOXO Nails, finishing with Cult Nails Wicked Fast top coat.
Black Magic is black glitter in a clear base with lots of different sizes and shapes, including square, hexagon, and bar glitters.  It is simple, yet it dresses up any mani instantly!  Such a versatile glitter.
I know I say it every post, but Elektra, the owner, is such a sweetheart! We met through Instagram. Not only does she create gorgeous polishes, she is great at manicures too! Make sure you check her out on Instagram - @xoxo_nails. She is also on Facebook and Twitter - @xoxo_nails. Her shop on Etsy, XOXO Nails, has full size bottles for $9.00, but she does have a few sets at discounted prices! Here is Black Magic!  Elektra keeps making new creations all the time, so make sure you check her out!! I always love what she comes up with!

So since Scandalous is a jelly, I decided to layer a coat of that over top!!  I love how it turned out!!!  And since Scandalous is very glossy, I didn't need to add a top coat (unless you want quick drying or to prolong the mani!).
Even though the jelly sandwich somewhat mutes the black glitter, it still gives an awesome effect in my opinion!
Of course, we love to be zoomed in, right!?
And here is a mani I wore to a wedding at the beginning of the month.  I didn't have time to take better pictures, but still wanted to share this beautiful combo of Black Magic over 2 coats of Tulum.  You can see my previous post HERE.
I liked it because it was kind of opposite of my dress! lol  And it's fun because people always think I spend a lot of times, but I threw this on while my friend, Dolly, curled my hair!! Talk about multi-tasking ;-)
Hope you enjoyed today's post!!  I hope I didn't make you too hungry with my yummy glitter sammy! hehe :-)  Make sure you check out Elektra's shop to see all her pretties - XOXO Nails!
Much Love,
