Urban Decay Oil Slick is a very cool-toned, very dark black with a pearl finish. It is a limited edition nail lacquer that retails for $15.00 and contains 0.33 oz.
Urban Decay Oil Slick Nail Color ($10.00 for 0.30 fl. oz.) is a grayish black with cool undertones and silver shimmer. It was fully opaque in two coats, though it was quite pigmented even in one layer. It wasn't too thick or too thin, which made it an easy shade to apply. I had no issues with the color bubbling or pooling along the edges, and it dried down to a smooth, shiny finish. L'Oreal Drop Dead Gorgeous (P, ) is darker (95% similar). Color Club Show Time (P, ) is darker (95% similar). Chanel Cosmic (LE, $28.00) is less shimmery, darker (90% similar). Cult Nails Ignite (LE, $12.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). China Glaze Smoke & Ashes (LE, $7.50) is darker (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.
