... Franken Week - Not so Frappé ....

Welcome to Franken Week here on Shatter me Claire!! I've been wanting to do this for awhile but haven't had the time to sit down and experiment but this week is the one!

So kicking off is "Not so Frappé" which I've made from NYC Crappé Frappé ... which I reviewed a few weeks ago HERE.

The problem with Crappé Frappé was that it was sheer, streaky and full of polish just waiting to smudge which is a shame as it was such a pretty colour!

So ... the challenge is on. To make Frappé less Crappé! Here's my attempt! Firstly I'm really happy with how the colour turned out. It's pretty similar to the original.

This is 3 coats and the silver polish I added seems to have helped the sheer problem and even using the tiny mini brush I definitely didn't have the streaking problem. Unfortunately it's still prone to being a smudgey mess :(
** Recipe **
2/3 bottle NYC Color Frappé
1/3 bottle Face of Australia Molten MetallicsTitanium
