Frankenpolish Glass Fleck Duochrome Top Coat #4

Here is my last glass fleck duochrome top coat.  This one is a pretty purple, shifting to pink and gold.  Applied two coats over black.




Look at the macro.  Arhhhhhhhh *angels sing*


And of course, in the sun it's super sparkly.


Next, my standard comparison to an Orly Cosmic FX polish, this time Galaxy Girl.  The base colours don't match, but I bet if I mixed some of this pigment with a black polish, rather than layering it over black, it would look exactly like Galaxy Girl.  But I much prefer the top coat.


Psst. Check that bottle shot above, those look like the exact same flakes as on the nail.


Ok, Ok Where to get them.

honeyjr - you totally nailed it in your first comment about the blue/purple one. She said "Doesn't TKB sell some of those Sparks pigments and they also have those Travel To powders which are somewhat similar aren't they?"  

These aren't the Sparks or the Travel To powders, but these are from TKB. These are called Star Bites.
The Blue/Purple one is called Cherika Moon.
The Gold/Green one is called Shanika Sun.
This Purple/Gold one is called Miranda Star.

So next time your ordering your mini bottles, or for you US ladies, when your ordering your suspension base, grab a sample pack.  These babies are worth every cent.

Any Aussie ladies ordering the suspension base should also ask about the Rona pigments, they are the same thing and they also have them in red/copper/gold and turquoise/blue/violet (although I haven't tried those colours yet, only the Volcanic Sparks)

  5. I have a feeling these might be similar to the pigment in Ozotic multichromes.. http://www.tkbtrading.com/item.php?item_id=1488
    Any ideas? I am *so* tempted to order, lol.

  9. Basak - I ordered some of the moon dust as soon as I made this first franken with these. They are already in the mail. I will swatch when I get them.

    Although they are definitely different from the Ozotic Multichrome powders. Ozotics use JDSU Chromaflair http://www.jdsu.com/en-us/Custom-Color-Solutions/Products/a-z-product-list/Pages/chromaflair.aspx and are really $$$$$. I checked prices and its only slightly cheaper than Spectraflair.

  12. I need all of these pigments... You listed the names of the first three but I didn't catch the name of the purple/pink/gold, is that also available at tkb?

    ReplyDelete
  13. Fantastic! :D I'll be placing my order

  14. QueenDom - the first one I got through an Australian supplier. Frankens #2, #2 and #4 were all TKB ones

  15. Awesome! On the swatches they look pretty blah, I'm so curious about the color shift. Are you planning on getting the turquoise/blue/violet of Rona pigment too?

    ReplyDelete
  16. Oh my ... What I love from you is that you don't keep your secrets jaleously :) I'll definitely place an order with TKB this month.
    Your top coat is a true beauty !

  17. Now I would like to place an order, but I fear customs... :^/
    Anyway, thank you for the info!

  18. Başak - I definitely will next time I place an order, it's just the supplier has a $100 minimum as they generally don't supply private customers, only large businesses. Have to wait until I need more suspension base.

  19. When you order through TKB how long does it take you to hear back from them? I emailed about a shipping quote to Tasmania, Aus more than a week ago and I still haven't heard back. I desperately want these pigments! I dont want to email too much and hassle! Thanks! x

  20. Amy - I usually don't bother with the quote business. I just stick with the default $14 flat rate. For my last order, in that box I got 20 mini bottles + the Star Bites, a 10x sample pack of mixed mica pigments, and a few other sample bags of pigment.

  21. Thanks for your help! I've just placed an order (pay day=big order!) Thanks for the awesome franken inspiration! x
