The New Black - Ombre in Walrus

I am always excited when I come across a new nail polish company.  What am I talking about...I get excited when someone says "Nail Polish"!!  Anyway....A couple months ago I heard about a fairly new company called The New Black.  I thought their product was interesting because they put together ombre sets.  How cool is that????  The set I am sharing today is one from their summer collection called Walrus.  As you can see from the picture, this is a brown ombre.


Natural light, no base or top coat.




Don't the polishes look pretty???  Guess what...pictures lie.  Unfortunately, this polish has one of the worst formulas that I have ever seen.  Seconds after applying 1 coat, the polish started separating on my nail.  It was like the polish was trying to crackle.  I had to apply 3 coats to get decent coverage and I still had horrible streaks.  The camera actually did a good job hiding these flaws, but in person and up close they were very noticeable.  This is very disappointing to me because The New Black presents itself as a high end polish, sold at Sephora and Nordstorm.  I would expect better quality.

Sorry New Black, this polish is a failure.

  4. Such a bummer that these polishes have such a horrible formula because I really love the idea of ombre sets. Plus, that shimmery brown on your thumb is so pretty! Oh well!

  7. That's really a shame about the formula. I especially enjoyed looking at the shimmer on the thumbnail, it looks so pretty on the pics.

  10. Hi, I am the Creative Director of THE NEW BLACK and you are absolutely correct! We had a stability issue with the Walrus sets and recalled the first batch one week after release.You somehow must have gotten some of recalled product. I deeply apologize that you were unable to experience the true quality of THE NEW BLACK. If you would like to try again please contact me! Robin Coe Hutshing
