Darkness Franken

This is the darkest franken I have ever made. I aptly named it Darkness.


Darkness is a pitch black holographic shade that took me by surprise. I never dreamt that it would actually remain this dark. I made this using a mixture of Color Club Worth The Risque? and Fright Night Claw Sinister. Fright Night Claw Sinister is a Halloween shade released last year, so keep your eyes peeled if you’re looking for this particular black. I remember getting it from Walmart on clearance after Halloween. I’m surprised at how dark it remained and at the same time how holographic it is. I thought for sure I’d have to sacrifice one or the other! Shown is one coat with no top coat.

What do you guys think? I would love to hear your feedback on any of my frankens, especially this one though!

    Great one! I like it. If it were not for that little multi shimmer color in it, I would say it looks a lot like an old fav of mine from OPI Holiday 2008 collection called “it’s Coal Outside.”
