Don't you dislike it when a company just lables their polishes with numbers? I do and Alessandro is one amongst them. Anyway, Alessandro #263 is a gorgeous black-in-low-lightning navy blue. It's hard to see the actual color in any other lights than direct sunlight because it's so dark. So I decided to layer an accent nail wiht CND's Teal Sparkle. #263 was opaque with 2 thicker coats and was ok to work with- nothing to exciting or difficult.
Teal Sparkle was a tad thicker formula-wise but that's not really an issue when you paint your nails with it.
You can actually see the blue tint in this flash picture:
