MAC Nocturnelle Nail Lacquer ($12.00 for 0.34 fl. oz.) is described as a "rich true black [with a Cream finish]." It's a rich, medium-dark black with a cream finish. It was almost opaque in a single coat, though I applied two to be sure. The consistency wasn't too thick or too thin, so two coats does give it a glossier, plusher look once it dries down. There's a natural shine to the dry down as well. See comparison swatches / view dupes.
