FOTM: Revvvolution vs Franken

Hi guys!  Today I have the last two comparisons that I have.  Color Club Revvvolution is probably the prettiest black I've ever seen.  Without layering, of course.  It has a great formula, thick without being unmanageable and almost a one coater.  If you were careful I'm sure you could manage it.  It has a gorgeous holo that leans green/yellow on me and is pretty linear though not strong.  It's a favorite that I wear frequently in the summer!
My franken, that has no name, is what I imagine MPJ to be... But better!  I've never found a good picture of the original formula, so I can't tell you for sure how close they are but I deff had it in mind.  Who doesn't love an amazing black holo?  Sadly, I don't remember how I made it... I just remember using the old, gloopy, almost gone bottle of ChG's Fairy Dust.  This is THICK.  I add thinner almost every time I use it but it gets thick again!  It needs to coats to be opaque.  This is going to be a favorite for a long time!
Let's look at some pictures!
The sparklies that you see are from the Fairy Dust


Can you see that linear green/blue coming out?

Green peaking out

You can see the blue really well here

And there it is again, though not as good.
So, what do you guys think of this?  I am IN LOVE.  It isn't the strongest, but it is linear and it IS really pretty!  What should I call it?  Ideas?  Thanks for looking!


  1. Pretty! Name idea: 'étincelle de noir'

    Literally translated it means "spark of black" or "black spark". :)

  2. That's very pretty! I like A Polished Touch's idea for a name.

    I LOVE THAT! Especially since in the last picture the individual sparklies are red and orange... Or because it's French and everything sounds amazing in French :)
