My First Franken

I'm back after a great spring break!

First, I would like to report that China Glaze Ruby Pumps lasted amazingly this spring break. After four days on the beach there was only slight tip wear!

After removing Ruby Pumps I gazed at my Polish collection looking for a color to wear for the next few days. I can usually tell with one glance at my calendar how much time I'm going to have for nail polish and this week doesn't look very promising.

I wanted something pink, since spring is in the air... but lately I've been attracted gorgeous glitter polishes with jelly bases. Shockingly I don't own a decent pink jelly glitter! (This must be remedied). After a bit of contemplation I decided to try a franken. For a base I used my mini OPI Do you think I'm Tex-y that had about 2/3 remaining. I added a combination of OPI Crown Me Already and OPI Serving up Sparkle with a few drops of Wet n Wild Wild Shine Kaleidoscope and two drops of Color Club Worth the Risque for some glitter variety. The result? A gorgeous glittery pink jelly.

Three coats and it was opaque.

(I apologize for how rough my cuticles look, the camera always makes them look so much worse!)

The big hex glitter seemed to stick to the sides of the bottle so I didn't end up with very many on the nail but I'm very happy with the color I ended up with.
