Swatches and Review: The New Black - Haze

Happy Friday Darlings!!

I can't believe the weekend is here already!
I Hope you all have something sweet planned for this weekend. If no plans, Just take out time to rest, relax, and enjoy. :-D

Today, I've got some purple polishes to show ya!
When I had the chance to pick a set from The New Black for review, I picked this set called Haze. Look around my blog... I'm sure it's obvious that I love Purple... so.. let's get right to it darlings.. :-D


This set is meant for Ombre manicures. Look at this.

If you've done the Ombre Mani before, you either had to find polishes in the same color group from  your stash, or you added a white polish to your most pigmented polish to change the color for each nail. 
Well, I am glad that with this The New Black Set, Ombre Manicures can be achieved without having to add white to a polish to change the color and create an ombre effect on your own.
Call me Lazy, but I love when the work has been done for me. :-D


Since the Color I used on my thumb was almost a one coater, I decided to stamp with it on the other colors. Here are my results.

I used an image from Cheeky Plate 11. I love the result!!!

My Overall thoughts?
Honestly, I think it's a genius idea to have an Ombre Set. The Ombre mani doesn't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon, so I'm glad to be able to partake in it without too much headache of finding colors that compliment each other from my stash.
This set would also be great for a gradient mani on each nail. I will have to try that some other time. I wanted to wear it the way it was intended for this review. :-D

Application was a breeze on all of the polishes except for the one I used on my ring finger. It ended up being a 2 coater, but my goodness, it was a pain to apply because of the streaks. Topcoat fixed it though.
The Polishes have a great shine on their own.

If you're interested in these polishes, you can purchase them at Sephora.

  2. I had no idea this existed, but god what a good idea! Really takes all the guess work out of picking the polishes for the ombre mani, because I'm too lazy to add white as well..

    I think I love the one on your middle finger the most, and the stamping turned out really great!
