I finally took the necessary next step – I made my own Franken! About two weeks ago I got bored with everything – imagine that, 400 bottles and I’m still bored, so I grabbed an empty bottle and started mixing things up – I knew what I wanted the result to be and I came pretty close.
It took a few days – mixing new things in – but overall it was really fun and I’m definitely going to do it again. I decided to name it Algae. It’s a dark teal that leans green with flashes of blue and gold and yellow glitter.
So what do you think? Not bad for a first try! The formula turned out very nice – it’s smooth and opaque in 2 coats, though I used three for the picture – and it’s not bumpy, which was my major concern with using as much glitter as I did.
Oh, by the way, I had every intention of showing you Essie – One Day without Blues, but then my sun vanished and I decided to swap it out for Algae – then of course the sun came back. I’ll be posting One Day without Blues this week – it’s super pretty, get excited!
I hope everyone has a lovely Saturday.
Edit: I forgot to include which polishes I used, so if you’re interested go ahead and click *more* 🙂
I know that seems like an insane list but remember I just kept adding different things over the course of a couple of days til I got the color I wanted – and Five Golden Rings really made it what I wanted it to be – I will certainly use that in future Frankens 🙂
