Dark Lava and Silver VIP Status have joined my collection.

Entity "Fashion Icon", Shellac Dark Lava x 2, Dark Lava + Shellac Silver VIP Status
Dark Lava in 1 word is GORGEOUS. A must have! I admit, it's not the most original color but it is one of my favourite colors. I know that my client will love it.
I saw Dark Lava being described as "dark raisin". Hm, I'm not sure. It's a dark, shimmery cherry. From a distance it looks almost black but not quite. Not quite at all.
The application is perfect. The color is very pigmented and it just flows on the nail. It doesn't move, it doesn't shrink, it doesn't bleed near the cuticle. I could get a perfect, sharp cuticle line.
On the first finger you see Entity "Fashion Icon". It's similar to Dark Lava but it's lighter and it's warmer. More red, like I said Dark Lava is more cherry.
In real life all the colors appear darked and richer.
On the pinkie you see 2 coats of Dark Lava + 1 coat of Silver VIP Status.
Silver VIP Status is an icy, frosty silvery shimmer. In real life it is a little multicolored but it appears cool on the nail. I assume this color is designed to be worn as an effect, over other colors. It will make the bottom color appear little lighter and cooler.
In the daylight the color looks less shimmery. Reminds me off Chanel's "Rouge Noir"
