... NYC Color - Frappé ...

NYC Color - Frappé
Purchased from Woolworths Supermarkets - $2.00 AUD
Remember a week or so ago when I posted a big bin of NYC polishes at my local Woolies - well that's now gone. I can't believe how quickly that massive bin emptied. I'm now seriously hoping they restock as I only walked away with 6 or so polishes.

Anyway I'll come out and say it ... Frappé really should have been named "Crappé" - ugh. This polish was awful for me - streaky and took forever to try and then still smudged. It was also quite sheer and it's really disappointing considering how beautiful this is in the bottle.

Firstly obviously what I think as the colour "frappé" isn't the colour at all as this is the second polish with this name in my collection and both are similar colours being more of a pinky purple and not browns at all.

On the outside it looks like a beautiful dusty pink that nearly looks like a metallic in the bottle - in reality it's an extremely sheer light pink.

This is 3 coats of frappé and it's not entirely opaque plus you can see a lot of streaks. There is no bubbles but the drying time leaves something to be desired. Even with a top coat this only lasted a day before I started to get chips and tip wear - seriously disappointing.
** Final Verdict **
Rather disappointing and I won't be wearing this again ... well not like this. I'm hoping to be able to franken it into something wearable though.


  1. Hi Hi!

  2. Crappé - I like it! I can't believe all those NYC's sold out that quickly. I've been wondering if the NYC polishes are dupy of the Ulta3 ones, just with different names? I haven't see a NYC bin here yet to compare.

  3. Frankens for the win!
    I've had a few Revlon polishes put to one side as they were too runny, too sheer or just bleah. I've added a few of the tiny scoops of spectra to them and now they're ... wow!
    Only one seemed a bit too creamy to get the full effect so I'm going to add more clear to see if that fixes it.
    PS. I'm always lurking but it's time I told you I enjoy your blog very much.

  4. Sorry you didn't like it, but it sure makes for a funny post! Crappe. Hilarious!
