MUA – Pitch Black

Hi everyone! Today I’m going to be reviewing Pitch Black by MUA (Make Up Academy.)


These are relatively small bottles (6.2 ml) but for £1 I’m not complaining. To be honest, I wasn’t expecting much out of such a cheap brand, but I was wrong! This polish is easy to apply and when done carefully, can be completely opaque in one coat! The brush is very small, so in some ways this done make for easy application, but I had trouble on my thumb nail, since it’s a larger area to cover.


The beauty of this polish is that it’s not thick at all, so it’s perfect for nail art. It’s highly pigmented as well. This polish is a little patchy, so if you’re using this as just a base colour, I would use two coats. But I used this as a base for nail art and it worked perfectly. There is one down side, without a thick top coat, this polish does chip VERY easily. I forgot to put a top coat on one of my nails and within two to three hours it had chipped. So always use a thick top coat or two or three coats of a thinner one.

In the picture below you’ll see my holographic star nails with one coat of Black Pitch by MUA.


So, it isn’t the best black ever. However, it certainly isn’t the worst! I would definitely use this again.

Thank you for reading!
