Finally, in the last of the Beetlejuice collection from Models Own is Emerald Black, a very dark green/teal duochrome,with a subtle shimmer. It's very pretty if you are a fan of darker colours, which I am!
I'll start of with a close up to show the shimmer in the dark blackened base (taken with flash in partial sunlight):
The following photo's are in sunlight, a rare moment at this time of the year, however I didn't have time to take any in natural light, sorry! ( bit out of focus too, oops!):
This photo below shows the very dark base which is what it looks like in natural light most of the time, the colour shifts are only really seen in bright light and as such has the least apparent duochrome shift compared to the others in the collection:
In my collection I have the following darkened greens, from left to right - Illamasqua in Viridian, Models Own Pro in Green Envy, Models Own in Emerald Black (this post!) and Models Own in Peacock Green.
As you can see they are very similar in the bottle (apart from the Pro!) but are actually very different on the nail. These are shown left to right as in the bottle picture:
Another at slightly different angle:
The Emerald Black is similar mostly to the Illamasqua Viridian but with a duochrome present. The Peacock Green ( far right) is much lighter and bluer on the nail, Green Envy is much blacker and has a microglitter finish. Out of the four Emerald Green is definitely my favourite, it's a duochrome and you know how I feel about them!
You can see the others here, just click on name:
So that is all the Beetlejuice collection for you, if you are new here, the last four posts were the rest of the collection, starting with my favourite working in order of preference!
I am hoping for a bit of sunshine tomorrow to do more swatching of duochromes, but until then, thankyou fro reading. xxx
