NYX Dark Glitter (NPS 217) Nail Lacquer

NYX Dark Glitter (NPS 217) Nail Lacquer ($4.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as “black with red flecks.” It looks like a black jelly with large, hexagon-shaped red glitter and smaller bits of red glitter. The finish is interesting, because it has the squishy look of a jelly, but it’s such a dark color that it almost doesn’t seem right!  The one dupe that I know of is Deborah Lippmann’s Ruby Red Slippers–there are really barely-there differences that you’ll likely only find in amount/composition under intense scrutiny.
