Black Phoenix Alchemy labs Claw polish review part I

Alchemy sent me some of their Claw polish to review.
Here is what they sent:


Black Phoenix Alchemy labs claw polish is available on their website.
The links I am posting are directly to the Claw polish as I found their website a bit complex to navigate.
The first thing I noticed was how great their bottle label is, I love the design.
Then there are the color names:


This is a beautiful deep yet shimmery blue.


MME Moriarty is the Misfortune teller in some Tarot decks.
This is my manicure today and is is a beautiful red jelly.


Bordello is a Metallic pink with a ton of silver.


Croquet is a sweet candy pink creme.


Malediction means The calling down of a curse or to Speak evil.
A super shiney black creme.


Sed Non Satiata means Never satisfied.
This is a Rouge creme very deep and velvety.

Normally I would do some quick swatches but I think these call for a full mani since I've heard so little about them, that I want to do a full review of each color.

First up is MME Moriarty. (You knew I was going to pick this first didn't you)


I have never seen a color quite like this. It's a Jelly but it's so pigmented that it really hides the visible nail line that jellies usually do not. So I'm calling this a Jelly/Creme.


The bottle depicts the color it looks on the nail in low light.


See how the light shines through the nail still.


OK so you can see the visible nail line but it's much more subtle than most jellies.


Application was perfection. Smooth, no dragging, thin but not runny.
3 coats to perfection.


Yes I took a billion pictures. This color really is much more beautiful in real life.
I will do my best to get the rest of these colors reviewed and posted.

  2. Ooh, that red jelly is hot! Mme. Moriarty, the fragrance, is on my list the next time I buy one of their perfumes. Have you tried the perfumes? It appears the polish is coordinating with the fragrances, for sure!

  8. OK, I'm going to have to try these soon. I order perfume from them just about every month, but I haven't tried the polishes, yet. I think I may have to remedy that. That red is gorgeous!

  11. Gorgeous color on you. I'm super envious of your nails now. I broke a nail and then cut all of them off. I hadn't had long nails in years and they were starting to drive me crazy. Now I have super duper short nubbins. I hate them this short. Why do I do these things to myself?! Love the jelly/creme red. I'll just have to come back and stare at your nails till mine start to grow again.
