While waiting for my nails to grow, and have them look pretty when polished… 🙂 I started up again with another polish hobby of mine. Frankenpolishing!!
I don’t make polish to sell, just for fun. And I don’t have all of the proper supplies (polish base, glitter base etc.) but I do have a selection of glitters, and cosmetic grade powders…from TKB Trading. (love that store!! I also purchase mini polish bottles and containers from them), and a ton of cheap nail polish I use to make my Frankens with!
There is one polish I have been trying to create for quite some time now, and I just have not had any luck. The main problem… the glitter I want to add all bleeds. Therefore, the red adds pink into the polish, the black adds grey – so the end result is poo colored polish with glitter that has no color left on it.
But, just about a month ago, I noticed TKB was carrying the exact glitter I was looking for AND it was specifically SOLVENT RESISTANT!! No bleeding!
Here we go! The first polish, is the one I have been trying to make for a while now….and the only one I didn’t name….(suggestions welcome :))
The base I used was made from half white polish, half clear.
These polishes I actually named. They aren’t good names, but they are names 🙂
This one is named: Fudge with Sprinkles
A mixture of approx half and half of this brown duo-tone and opal holographic glitter polish.
I also added a small scoop of holographic glitter, and a small scoop of Gold Dust (off-white with a golden sheen)
The last franken I made, was a glitter polish I like to call: Mermaid Puke (lol that was fun naming :))
This polish started with an old Essense polish I had – I cant remember the name, but it was about half full of a very pale pink holo glitter. After I added all of the additional glitter I wanted, I just topped it off with a clear polish.
Also, I need to make note that my cuticles were in AWFUL shape, so as you can see I went a little crazy adding the wording to try and cover how icky they looked 🙂
Hopefully, this extremely photo heavy post didn’t crash your program 🙂 And I also hope you have a fun Cyber Monday!
