Forsythe Black Walnut

My last post of 2011. I should probably make it a good one. To say goodbye to 2011, I'd like to show you something special. One of my most prized and cherished polishes: Forsythe Black Walnut.


Forsythe Black Walnut. This is a blackened burgundy base with lots of red and gold shimmer. It's that super smooth type of shimmer that I love so much, the kind that makes the polish look bright/glowing in the center and dark around the edges. The formula is an absolute dream. It's super opaque, smooth, even, goes exactly where you want it to. It's perfect in every single aspect.

This one is pre-Color Club. I have a handful of old Forsythe polishes and they're pretty nice, but this one is my favorite of all of them. I think this one was made into a Color Club shade, but I've never been able to find it in the Color Club bottle. I'd love to have a backup, but they're both long gone. So I'll just have to ration my precious bottle and hope that they re-release it one day.

So, there we go. Last post of 2011. Can't say that it was a particularly good year for me, but, I suppose it could have been worse. There were a few highlights and hopefully 2012 will be a little brighter. How about you guys? Have any new year's resolutions or wishes for 2012? Thanks for sticking with me for another year... Glad you're all here :)

  3. This polish is truly heaven in a bottle. Strange feeling when your using your most prized polish, happy to see the color and nervous to use it. My resolution is to get a bottle of OPI DS Glamour and not pay a fortune for it. Lol I feel blessed to be able to enjoy your blog. Happy new year.

  4. Wow, is that gorgeous or what? When I saw Forsythe in the title I instantly thought Color Club - what a shame they don't re-release this!
    It's been a year of ups and downs, for sure. I hope you have a good New Year though!

  5. I only just discovered your blog this year (where have I been??!) and fell immediately in love - your pictures are amazing, I like the variety of brands featured, and I really enjoy your occasional non-polish related posts, especially the eye looks. Looking forward to journeying through 2012 with you. Have a lovely, lively, safe New Year's!

  10. Gorgeous! At first I thought it looked like SH Valentino.. but no. Looks CLOSE to CC Nothing But Truffle. Similar to ChG Branding Iron but blacker.. This is going to bug me!

    Happy new year! All the best for 2012. Thanks for the fabulous swatches and most amusing commentary.

  13. I literally just found your blog last night...the color is beautiful. Just an FYI...I found a polish from the mid 90s that's been discontinued on ebay. I had to pay a pretty penny for it, but its now finally in my lacquered hands. :)

  14. Have a very Happy New Year. I pray it's better for all of us. I know I truly appreciate you & the hard work you put into this blog. It's a pleasure to read it. Love that polish. I wish it would be re-released. I'd love to have it.

  15. i hope this next year is better for you too. this year sucked for me, but hey. could have been worse!

    just wanted to leave you a note that i am so happy i discovered your blog this year - i've turned into a little polish fiend myself, and your swatches and reviews help so much.

    (plus, you're a rammstein fan that lives in my general area... bigtime bonus points there!)

  16. Hi Scrangie - happy new year to you too! My new year's resolution is to stop buying so many pretty polishes (or move to a bigger apt. to store them!)

    Thx for all your hard work in your blog I read it in the morning before I start my busy day at work.

  18. That is STUNNING! I'm a sucker for reddish/chocolate shimmer colors...LOVE IT!

  19. This reminds me of a mash up of CC Jewel of a Girl, Zoya Kalista + Sinful Colors Rich at heart. We need to find a dupe for this ASAP! I need it in my collection!

  20. That's so gorgeous! Now I'm making myself crazy trying to figure out what the Color Club version might have been. It makes me think of Black-ish mixed with Nothing But Truffle, and maybe some With Abandon but with finer shimmer...

  21. Oh that is quite a gem of a polish! Happy 2012!

  22. Reminds me of Jewel of A Girl, but JoAG seems to lack the warmth.
