I had a little snafu with my hard drive so I wasn't able to access pictures for the post I was originally going to do, but I had this one in my back pocket for a time like this. In talking, Ricarda, from Rica, took note that I had been looking for a new black cream since my favorite had been discontinued. Well, she sent me her basic black and white polishes to try...Blackout and Whiteout. No shimmer. No holo. No flakies. No jelly. No crelly. Just creams. Black and white creams. Needless to say, I was excited to give these a shot. Ready to see what my thoughts were?
Blackout is described as "the blackest black polish".
Shown is one coat of Blackout with top coat.
Blackout is a better one coater than my previous favorite black polish, Cult Nails' Nevermore. The brand is no longer around, which made me sad, but finding this gem makes everything so much better. It had an incredibly smooth application. Spread like butter. No patches. Perfection. BRAVA!!
Whiteout is described as "an opaque bright white polish".
Shown is two coats of Whiteout with top coat.
Whiteout is so crisp. Yes, it may have taken two coats...if you know of a one coat white let me know...but this is one of the best whites I've ever used. First coat was slightly streaky, but second coat evened out and filled in all the spots. After the top coat was applied, all was perfect!
Yeah, she sent these to me with press samples, but they were seriously more for me to try since I needed replacements. I will be buying more of these for sure. I've already used a lot of both of these bottles. They are so perfect as undies for glitter toppers. Both are available at https://www.etsy.com/shop/justricarda for $7 each. You won't be disappointed! I've got my eye on the set of rainbow squishies. If they are anything like these, they will blow your mind! Make sure you're following Rica on all of her social media platforms (links below) to stay updated on news, sales, and releases.
What did you think of these? You in the market for new basic black and white creams or do you already have a favorite?
