This Fall, Make Up For Ever is coming up with the darkest, most sensual and seductive, latin dance inspired collection and for the very first time extends its line to nail polish!
The Black Tango collection consists of a new aqua cream palette, new aqua rouge shades along with 3 exclusive shimmer nail polishes : Black with Blue Highlights, Black with Green Highlights and Black with Red Highlights.
I'll just go and call them Black Blue, Black Green and Black Red ;-)
Both formula and overall look were pretty much the same in all 3 polishes so I'll just talk about them here. They are all black based fine shimmers, with a "darker in the edges" effect but not so dark that they look completely black under low lighting : vampy with a muted look. Consistency was very good and coverage easy in two coats but they were also quite fast drying, actually so much so that I had to work fast or they would turn a bit goopy.
And now, on to the pictures!

forest green shimmer in a black base
wine red shimmer in a black base
I'm in love with this collection but I think I was already sold on the words "Black Tango". I've always loved dark nail polish and these are no exception!
Quick note : these swatches, like all of my pictures, were taken under full lighting so please bear in mind that the shimmer can't be that intense under undirect light ^_^
The Black Tango collection is scheduled for October 2012 but a few stores have already received stock so your favorite SA might very well become your best friend ^_^
The nail polishes retail for $12 / £10 / 12€ (0.25fl.oz / 7.5ml).
