Aphrodite Lacquers Never Too Old

Tonight I have the dark and mysterious Never Too Old from the Aphrodite Winter Collection 2012 to share with you.

Never Too Old is a deep, dark black polish. Its not quite a jelly but its not a creme either so we'll go with crelly. This polish is the Jekyll and Hyde of the polish world, on one hand its a dark polish with silver shimmer and a satin finish, however pop a top coat on and all sorts of magic happens! It pops with luminous purple and silver shimmer which you cant really see without a top coat. In full light its simply mind blowing!

The crelly formula wasn't opaque enough for me to carry this polish off without a base colour so I popped on a coat of Cult Nails Nevermore to increase the opacity.

The swatches here show two coats of Never Too Old over a base of Cult Nails Nevermore, shown first without any top coat and then with two coats of Seche Vite.
