I´m so proud to present my very first franken!!
Last week AmyGrace showed Nubar Reclaim, which I also have and love, but I still wanted a dark green holo. So that´s what I commented on her post and she said I can always try to franken it. I thought it would be a good idea with China Glaze Jolly Holly and some silver/clear holo polish, but she thought Jolly Holly would be too pigmented. I guess she´s right. So I started with a jelly green, Finger Paints Mistletoe Mischief. Then I wanted to put some Gosh Holographic in it, but it´s too thick and won´t come out of the bottle... so I pulled ChG OMG out of the helmer. I wasn´t totally happy with the result, so I added some ChG Jolly Holly and quite some OPI ds Shimmer and a bit of Lippmann Don´t Tell Mama.
And here´s the result. Only 2 coats and it is so shiny, doesn´t need topcoat at all. And also dried fast.
It really is a lot more holo than the pictures show, there´s a real rainbow going on at my nails, but I just don´t have the camera to capture that.
I did try to franken something before, but it became a total failure, it never even made it to a swatch on my nails, but I´m pretty satisfied about this one.
It´s not perfect yet, it needs a bit more holo (the more the better :P), but with too much holo it gets too light, so I will have to think of a solution for that, because I´d also like to see it a bit darker green. But first I have to use some of the bottle, because it´s full now, haha.
What do you guys think? Was my first franken a success? Or total fail?
Thanks for watching!
