I applied 2 coats of a black polish I had to hand (in this instance a Rimmel black) and then a coat of Seche Vite to seal the colour. I then applied 2 coats of the NYX followed by another coat of Seche Vite to give it real gloss and this is the result:

It's really hard to convey properly in photographs (especially as I'm rubbish at taking them!) but the holographic particles catch the light beautifully and reflect different colours. It really does give the effect of a black opal. The NYX polish is similar to a bar glitter polish but the shapes are random which I think gives a great effect. I can't stop admiring it and moving my fingers around to catch the light in different ways.
I think this is one of my favourite manis to date, but I'm tempted to take a leaf out of Tracy's book and top this off with a crackle polish, just to see how it works. If I do, I'll let you know!
