Na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na na Batman? Ft. Essence Black is Back

Happy Mothers Day guys!  I hope you all had a splendid day no mater how you spent it!

Before we move on to Batman I want to start by talking a bit about Essence Black is Back.  First of all those of you wondering where black had gone fear not it is back.  Second, I have been in search of a new black for a while as my OPI Onyx is lacking.  So I decided to give this a go.  It was cheap, what the hell.  Formula was...ehhhhh...ok but it started to coagulate.  I used 1 medium coat and 1 thin coat and it bubble quite a bit(which is my biggest complaint) but they were small enough for the top coat to cover it.  Long story short I'm still on the hunt for the perfect black.  Suggestions?

Next up I decided to add a bit of flair.  I took inspiration from a little game on my iPhone I have been playing for the past few days.  Draw Something.  For those of you who don't know what the game is you get 3 words and you need to choose one and draw it for the person you are playing with.  Each word is worth more or less points depending on how hard it is to draw.  Now there are people who play and are unnaturally amazing.

I suck.

But because I suck my pictures turn into magical, hilarious doodles.  I want to frame every one of them. Or draw them on my nails.  This right here is Batman.

These are my nails.

Nailed it.


  1. It is indeed a fortunate thing that black is back. I, myself, did not realize it was gone so this comes as a bit of a shock, but one that I'm quickly recovering from, thanks to the reassurance of this polish and its name. It really is a remarkable black creme and if Essences didn't last such a ridiculously short amount of time on me i might call this my favorite. Oh wells. :) Nananananananananana.

  2. I would really recommend Maybelline's Color Show in Blackout! It's basically a onecoater <3

  3. Did it really bubble? O_o Black is Back is my favourite black - I've never used more than one coat and I've never ever experienced bubbles. Perhaps it's got to do with chemistry?? :)

    1. Yeah maybe that's why :/ Granted it still is better than OPI Onyx so it is still a step up for me :P That being said I'm going to give it a few more goes before I give up on it!

  4. Cute!! I actually use Nicka K Noir whenever I use black. It has a really good formula.

  5. Hehe that's a really cool mani! :-)

  6. My go-to black is the Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear one! It's super cheap and usually takes me two coats for good coverage. Thin formula, easy to control.

  7. I use NYC n° 119 City Blackout, works very good for me :-) Cool Batman manicure! :-)
