About a week or two ago, a guy in my class gave me a little jar of white glitters with a blue flash. He told me he had used them for carnaval and had a couple jars left, so he gave it to me to use for my nail-art. How sweet! The first thing I wanted to do was make a franken. So I picked a bottle of clear MAX polish (from the Dutch drugstore Action) and threw some glitter in. I thought it would look like Kiko 270, but with smaller glitters. It looked really nice but as I started shaking the bottle, the glitters lost their color so there wasn't anything special left. So I decided to make a franken with more than just clear polish and glitter.
Close up. You can see the red and gold glitter and if you look closely you can see some flakies too!
I basically threw a billion things together until I had what I wanted, so I can't exactly remember what's in it, but I'll try.
2/3 bottle of clear MAX polish
the white glitter that lost colour
8 drops of Orly Snowcone (blue pastelish colour)
4 drops of WIC by Herôme Amsterdam (bright red)
3 drops of China Glaze It's My Turn (gold holo from the Kaleidoscope coll.)
2 drops of MAX Black
5 drops of Hema #11 (gold foil)
8 drops of L.A Colors nail art red glitter
4 drops of a clear 2 way stiper with gold glitter
5 drops of Milani Gold Glitz (Rockstar coll.)
5 drops of Milani Red Sparkle (Rockstar coll.)
3 drops of Golden Rose Scale Effect 13(flakie)
That's about it! So if you want to make this you can just use a clear, light blue and bright red polish with gold and red glitters, in stead of throwing glitters etc. from a million different brands in it!
I did use Safari You Nailed It! (YES a polish with my blogname!) as a base to make sure that the franken wasn't too sheer because of the big amount of clear polish.
Oh and this is a vague (on purpose!) picture of what it looks like when your jar of glitter decides to jump off your desk!
Do you know a nice name for this franken? :)
