Ms Andry's Bath House Morticia

I don't at all remember how I stumbled across the offerings of Ms Andry's Bath House, but in a world of hilarious nail polish names, she might win the whole internet (e.g., Bonerkiller, Aunt Flo, Feminist Killjoy).  Not so much abounds in the way of swatch pics of her stuff yet, but I had to check em out anyway.

indoor, bright CF lighting
Morticia is an inky near-black charcoal with a lovely cool slate-blue shimmer that makes it look like the iridescent flash off a raven's wing - approximately perfect for the namesake here.

window-filtered overcast daylight
Interestingly, though it actually IS a black polish, Morticia never looks plain black - that shimmer is present in all lighting other than the actual dark.  In bright light, the shimmer just gets more intense.

outdoor, bright sunlight
Rating:  3 out of 5 stars.  A fairly unique color in my stash, and so much more wearable than flat black, it's vampy without being completely goth.  The formula was a little too thick, leaving me with a lot of patchiness after the first coat and some quicker than expected chips - it'll likely benefit from a few drops of thinner before I wear it next.

Where to buy:  quite affordably, direct from Ms Andry herself.
