Layering of the week: NYX under the moon over China Glaze Frosty

It's been so long since I've posted my first Layering of the Week, that I decided it was time to bring it back! Today I have to show you a pretty combo: NYX Under the moon over China Glaze Frosty. I bought Under the moon with a bunch of other NYX nail polish Glitter like a month ago (of which I've done a post here), and haven't had the occasion to share it with you until now.




I thought this might be appropriate for the season, since it's very "wintery" looking in my opinion.
I love how the blue looks a little icy over Frosty. Under the moon, applies very evenly, the base has a good formula not to thick nor too thin and has a lot of small holo glitter and some sparse hexagonal mirror sequins a on a light blue base, it's quite opaque in two coats but I was wearing Frosty beneath it, so I used only one coat. The swatches are without topcoat.

This is the second of the NYX glitters I've used and I'm happy so far, the first one is here, definitely better than the Essence glitters I've tried until now.
What do you think about it? Is it worth the 2 USD it costed? Do you have a similar polish in your stash?
Love,
Nati

  1. I liked this layering and I don't think I got something like that one, not this blue at least. :)

  7. Hi Nati, oh I love this - I call it the glacier look ;-). I have yet to try Nyx glitters - I always bought them and then gave them away, next time I will keep a bottle ;-)! I have Frosty Shake from Femme Farale - it is white glitter and bigger turqoise glitter in a clear base so I have to create my glacier look with ChG Sea Spray or Zoya Wednesday or ....

    1. Hello my little polish fairy! you're always so full of wonderful ideas! But Femme Fatale are the major leagues comparing to poor nyx glitters, lol!
      Thank you again and again! I loved your nail mail!
