NYX Frizzy Spots – Swatches and Experimentation
Here we have one coat of NYX Frizzy Spots over 1 coat of China Glaze Liquid Leather, and a top coat of Orly Sec ‘n’ Dry.
This was very pretty, very visually effective with the holographic silver hexs over the shiny shiny black, and very quick to dry. An all around win! I bought the NYX Frizzy Spots from Beauty Joint online, very reasonably priced.
Then I played with Nyx on its own, but that was a fail. A miserable fail. You see, even though it looks black in the bottle, the sheer jelly base of Frizzy Spots is actually smokey quartz colour – grey/brown/black.
This was 4 VERY thick coats to try and reach vague opacity, and it was ugly. Lumpy, patchy, rough and ugly. Also it didn’t dry, even with the top coat (Orly Sec ‘n’ Dry) – but in it’s defence I gave it 10 mins then got rid of it. Because it was ugglyyyyy
But one thing I did try which was more win than lose was: layering one thin coat of Darling Diva Polish’s Dreamy over the original effort – of one coat of China Glaze Liquid Leather and one coat of Frizzy Spots. See?
I liked this, you can still see the colours and sparkle of the large holographic glitters from Frizzy Spots, and it’s still quite dark in colour, but there is also that amazing linear holographic rainbow over the top. Because this was one coat over the one coat each of Liquid Leather and Frizzy Spots, this dried nice and fast, without top coat, in about 5 minutes. I’ll try this again sometime!
And one more photo, showing this combo and the original Frizzy Spots over Liquid Leather in the background.
Have a great day, everyone!
