Always a fan of oil slick iridescence I was thrilled to find BL had bottled it. Like it's real life counterpart it's lovely no matter what light it's seen in. Long lasting it gets compliments no matter where I am. On my second bottle and hope it remains forever a part of the BL classics.
Amazing Color and Shimmer

I absolutely love this color!!! It can be applied over another color, dark shades for a deep shimmer effect, or light shades for a lighter/brighter look, but I tend to wear 2 or 3 coats by itself and top it of with BL's top coat and I'm good to go with a fantastic purpley-blue shimmer mani that which compliments whichever color outfit I am wearing. This is my single favorite BL polish!!!!
Fab top coat

This top coat adds a nice sparkle to any color you put it over. It's awesome on its own, but even more fab over any other color. I've tried it with dark colors and light colors and it works amazingly on either!
Gorgeous and Fun

I have wanted this color for so long. I finally have a bottle. I tried it over Saucy Jack (which is a great color on its own) adding the Petrol overcoat takes it to the next level. I can't wait to try this with other colors.
Sugar, Spice & Everything Nice!

I paired this with Marrow and love it--it spiced up the color perfectly! It gives any polish just the right amount of sheen. I also tried it alone and think it makes a nice simple statement for when you don't want too much color on your nails, but don't want to use a neutral color. It's like the frosting on a cake!

This overcoat is amazing. It looks great with every color I've paired it with, but goes above and beyond when paired with black or another especially dark color.
subtle but powerful

This color is awesome! Worn alone it is subtle but makes a statement. Overtop of something else, it adds that special something I've been looking for!

Love this overcoat. It's so rocker chic when worn over dark colors. I absolutely love it!
Glossy, duochrome-y, lovely

I ordered Petrol to compare to Knackered. It's so lovely on. Very very glossy, but not metallic. As previous reviewers have said, it's very sheer on its own,requiring several coats for full color. However, I initially painted a test coat over an opaque coat of light gray I was already wearing and it was fully opaque immediately. You could do a light base coat of something neutral underneath first and you'd be good to go.
