NYX Asphalt

This doesn't look like asphalt but it would be pretty sweet if asphalt did look like this. I really, really, really like this one. It's a sheer black with tons of little pieces of colored glitter but no holo glitter. It's kind of rare to come across a black with glitter that doesn't have some sort of holoness to it. It's sheer so I layered two coats over a black. You could wear it alone but it might take a number of coats to get it opaque. It dries smooth and the glitter shows through the black wonderfully.

I got this one at Cherryculture and I highly recommend it! It makes me smile when I look at my nails. It reminds me of Lippmann Happy Birthday. They are not dupes but they both have that confetti color glitter that reminds you of celebrating.

Lots of photos because I think it deserves them all. Remember to click for a larger photo.

Bottle.



On the nail.















Isn't it fun?

I have this one on now but did not layer it with a black base, next time I will because it took 4 coats to cover vnl. Love it!!

Wow, I love the colorful glitter it has ! :D
It definitely gives the classic black a pop of color.

I think this looks more amazing in the bottle.
:( On the nail, the round glitters just look too random.
