Any recommendations? Besides the Chanel one..
Essie Licorice is fantastic! There are 2 great Chanel shades, Black Satin & Noir Ceramic - I know you said besides the Chanel ones, but just wanted to let you know that out of those two, I love Noir Ceramic.
MAC makes one called Nocturnelle and OPI also makes one called Black Onyx. I have both the Chanel polishes and I say that I am like Jennn I am more drawn to the Noir Ceramic it is so pretty on.
Nails Inc also do a good one, its called London Nights. Its a good price too, only £8 ($16)
(dont know whether Nails Inc is only available in the uk!)
