The Black Village Collab ~ Afro-Centric

*These products were provided for review

Hi there! How are we all doing today? Well I hope! Today I have for you a few offerings from the brand new Black Village Collab. This collab celebrates black makers in the indie world. The ambassadors will be mostly POC, but as you very clearly see, They also want to keep representation an important thing. Representation and inclusion is the point after all. Let’s get into our products shall we?

I want to start with this super gorgeous piece of art. This is an Ari H. Illustrations print. An 8×8 illustration of a black woman with a crown made of golden hair picks. This piece screams power to me. I love it. I put it in a shadowbox because it just deserved to be preserved that way. *This art print will not include a frame. This piece will be $20 each and there is no cap!

Celestial Blackness is a beige to black thermal polish with red/copper shimmer and red, turquoise, and gold holo micro glitters. I absolutely love a thermal polish. They are so much fun to play with! Especially Jior’s thermals. They are super reactive. CB polishes nice and smooth. I definitely suggest using a glitter smoothing top coat because the glitters will leave a bit of texture. I also had a slight visible nail line after 3 thin coats. This may or may not bother you but it doesn’t bother me at all. It’s neat because when it’s cold you can’t even tell. Celestial Blackness will be $11 and there is no cap.

Motherland’s Melanin Magic is a deep brown jelly polish full of golden flakes, UCC flakes, and UCC mega flakes. This is such a beautiful mix of base and flakes. This polish may be listed as a creme but in my experience it was very sheer. It took some building up. Again not something I mind just wanted to note that in case someone else has the same experience. The polish itself was very smooth and laid very flat. I didn’t use a glitter grabber for this flakie polish it was that smooth. My video shows three coats for my swatches but I actually used 4 thin coats. I just forgot to film the last coat. This polish will be $12 and there is a cap of 100 bottles.
