China Glaze Near Dark

A while back, a friend of mine was ordering some polishes from eBay and asked me if I'd ever heard of this polish. Nope... totally skipped my attention, but as soon as I looked at the swatches I knew I had to have it!

China Glaze Near Dark is a very dark, murky green cream. It looks almost black on the nail, but you can definitely still tell it's a green polish.

The formula was perfect. Opaque in just 2 thin coats, easy to apply and it dried fast enough. I didn't use any topcoat for these pictures, it's this shiny all on its own!

Everybody knows I like my dark polishes and this is no exception! Such a gorgeous color, perfect for fall and winter. It was part of the Haunting collection for Halloween 2011 and I think it's a shame this hasn't gotten more attention. I do understand, because the glitters in that collection (It's Alive and Haunting) are gorgeous and take center stage, but still, this deserves a bit of the attention too! 

Do you own this gorgeous polish and if not, did you know about it?
