Black nails are always edgy. Black matte nails are somehow edgier and soft all at the same time. Out of all the Demi-Matte polishes in the Chalk Board Diaries Collection, Blackboard is definitely my favorite. Just look at that finish!
In the bottle, Blackboard looked like a really dark charcoal gray, but it's the demi-matte formula that makes that illusion. The Demi-Matte finish was definitely made for this shade. Application was great, too. Very little streaking, and that all evened out at the second coat. I added a third just to be sure I wouldn't have any visible streaks upon drying.
Like the other Demi-Mattes I review, I added a clear coat and Seche Vite to an accent nail so you could see what Blackboard looks like all glossed up. To me, it almost looks like a jelly. Oddly enough, I prefer the matte look on this one, because it is such a soft matte finish. It's got a great luxe leather sort of look to it. I'll definitely be wearing this one again!
