What a delicious, rich, and sultry shade. Black Cherry Chutney goes on like a lustrous black. In the sunlight, it has dazzling deep red shimmers and resembles the skin of a cherry. This is one of the most beautiful nail polishes I have ever seen. Decent opacity, I need about two coats. Not too thick or thin either. Black Cherry Chutney is incredibly subtle and vampy. If you love variations of black nails, this is a must!
My favourite nail colour for a couple of years now. Looks stunning against pale neutral skin (I'm an NC20). The perfect vampish colour both tone & finish-wise - always chic & glam, never goth stoner. Lol.
This polish is my absolute favorite! Nothing compares to the richness and beautiful shimmer! Always will be my #1 shade!
I'm on my second bottle of this. This is a very nice dark colour, its almost black but it has gold/purple reflects in the polish. Very very fine and looking from far, you wont be able to detect such thing but once the light hits it, it is just gorgeous! I love dark colours on my toes! On the first coat, this does apply very streaky, second coat will even it all out and give the nails even coverage. Highly recommend for dark nail varnish lovers!
Like many other reviewers have said this color looks like a lot of the other vampy colors out there - like Give me Moor, etc. However, I love this color because of the depth of it in different lighting - when I am outside I notice the small specks of sparkle and the beautiful pluminess of it. Indoors it looks like a creme but I wear this color for me - love the sparkly surprise when I am outdorrs! Love it!
Application is great and you can get away with 2 coats but I tend to do three - the brush is wide so I get my mani done in no time. Love that about OPI!
When I first picked out this polish I was very excited... but ended up rather disappointed. In the bottle it looks like a very deep burgundy and a gorgrous reddish tint is very visible but on nails its basically a black... if there's any tint to it it's more of a plum-violet, and even that is very hard to see and is mostly just visible on the first streaky coat and as it moves away from the streaky-ness (3+ coats) it moves towards being black. Definitely not what I was looking for.
Beautiful winter color. If you're a fan of dark purpley colors this is for you! It looks a little more purple on me.. maybe because I got it on acrylics but its gorgeous regardless.
I love this color~ it's a deep, glossy, blackened-red with super-fine red shimmer (the exact color of a ripe bing cherry). I love deep, dark, edgy nail colors, and this one delivers. The formula is a little thick, though that could be because Iíve had it 2-3 years now. Two coats give sufficient coverage. Drying time is a bit longer than normal, Iíd say 10-15 minutes until its dry to the touch, though its Ďsmudgeableí for a good hour (maybe because it lays on a little thick). The wear time is decent, as are most OPIs Iíve tried. I get 2-3 days with some minor tip wear, and about 5 days before any real noticeable chipping (I always wear with a base & top coat). Thatís pretty good, for me, because I am not careful with my nails at all. This was limited edition when I got it, I donít know if its part of OPIs regular line now, or not. I am glad I have it, its in my regular rotation of fall-winter nail colors. Its definitely one of the more unique, dark vampy shades Iíve come across.
Hands down my favorite dark polish. perfect for winter, i usually rock this polish near Halloween. i just applied it tonight and i continue to love it. Recommend it to anyone, i think it could work with a variety of skin tones. I'm tan/olive and it looks great on me and also my mom who is fair skinned. It has great shine and some shimmer, overall it's not dark like black polish but not too purple/blue toned... i love it! doesnt clash with any outfit
This is my first attempt at trying a very dark shade of polish. Typically, I stick with reds on my toes, and neutral shades on my fingers. Black Cherry is it's name, and it looks exactly like black cherries. It took three coats before the streaks would disappear. It's definitely a winter polish ~ I live in So CA and could wear it with black in the fall and winter.
Honestly, I don't like the shade. I didn't like Vamp when it was the craze in the 1990's. Never wore it then, and I won't wear it now. I am sending this polish back ~ at my age this polish is took dark and too youthful for me.
