Nailderella Franken!

9:27 PM


Yay~ I'm glad to present you my first Franken!! I played once with mixing clear nail polish and loose fine glitters but not in a bottle so it doesn't really count as a franken. So this one is my true first Franken!

Here I used different types of glitters: small purple, fuchsia, and aqua blue hexagons, larger fuchsia and charcoal hex. I also added blue diamonds and light purple bar glitters. I mixed them in a little jar.
For the base color of this franken, I used Orly Etoile + clear nail polish (50:50) + 2 drops of A-England Iseult + 2 drops of Essie Haute as Hello. I don't think the drops of Iseult and Haute as Hello were necessary.
Then I added the mix of glitters into the bottle that contained the base color. I shook well and it was done!

And here is the result!! I layered 1 coat of it, over 2 coats of A-England Iseult. You can see my full post about Iseult here. Iseult is a really gorgeous polish. So if you don't know it, click on my link :D

I really enjoyed wearing it!! I think it looks nice! I wore it for 1 day and then I wanted to see what it looked like with a jelly on top. So I added one coat of OPI So Many Clowns...So Little Time.

What do you think of it? Have you ever tried to do your own polish?
I've several glitters in different shapes and colors so I wanna try something else with completely different colors! I just don't have empty

EDIT: Here are the glitters I used.

  • upper row (l-r): Essence Nail Art Glitter - 05 Shine Like A Star (blue diamonds); Essence Nail Art Glitter - 06 Glitter It (large pink hex); craft glitters (no specific name) in aluminium aqua blue glitters.
  • lower row: these are all glitters I found in a craft store. The brand is Hobby & Crafting Fun.
For the craft glitters, I first put some in clear nail polish to check that don't melt in nail polish.

I just used 1-2 hearts so I didn't get any on my nails...I should try to add more of them! :D
