my first franken creation!

I decided to try my hand at frankening :)  As I said in my last post, I brought home a bunch of old polishes from my brief out of town visit to my parent's house.  I decided to use some of the small bottles that I knew would never make awesome manis on their own and mix them into my own creation!  I used a really old bottle of Crickets polish that was a pink jelly with glitter.  I mixed an opaque dark purple/burgundy shimmer by Sally Hansen (no name) in along with an old Wet'n'Wild blue glitter with a clear base.  This was the result! Three coats topped with INM holographic topcoat for a little more bling :)

Pretty color, right?!  and lots of bling.  Unfortunately, the brush in the bottle I mixed in is short, stubby and just awful, so application was extra terrible.  This was three coats and it was still streaky.  I also smeared my middle finger, which thoroughly irritated me.  If I could get this one a bit more opaque and into a different bottle, that would be great because the color is uh-mazing (imo!).

I think I've gotten myself addicted to frankening now...oops!  So stay tuned for more frankens to come!!

Thanks for reading! Love you all! <3


  1. This looks great! I made my first this weekend too. I will probably swatch it tomorrow!
