I love black nail polish. It's been my Fall/Winter neutral for a really long time. The color to wear when you have absolutely no clue what color to wear! I've got a couple in my stash with different finishes. This one is a great mix of metallic edge and shimmer!
Part of Wet n Wild's Here's to the Wild Ones collection, Keep Vinyl Alive is an almost-black metallic shimmer. Up close and in photos, you notice the shimmer, but not so much in real life. Looking down at my nails as I type, they read as a very shiny dark graphite.
Keep Vinyl Alive went on nicely. It was opaque in two coats, but I added a third to smooth out some lines and make extra sure that there weren't bald spots.
While I do like this shade, I'm not totally over the moon about it on its own. I'd love to see it mattified, because I think it might gray it down a little bit. It would probably also work really well in a Seriotype. Shimmery polishes usually do. I'm definitely excited to give that a try.
