Franken: Mint 2 Chip

Happy Sunday Loves!

Today I have a quick post to show you a little franken that I made this weekend.

For a while now I’ve had the idea in my head to make a polish that looks like mint chocolate chip ice cream, 1) because it’s my absolute favorite flavor and 2)because I love mint-colored nail polish.

I mixed together Ulta Mint Condition with a bit of OPI Alpine Snow, then I added in some black glitter, and voila! The black glitter doesn’t show up as well as I’d like, plus it bled a bit and changed my original base color, but I’m still pretty happy with it. I decided to call it Mint 2 Chip 🙂

In the pics below I used 2 coats.Peep it:

That’s all for today folks! What do you think of my franken?

It makes me really want some mint chocolate chip ice cream!

Anyway, enjoy the rest of your weekend peeps!

Pink Floyd

Happy Pink Wednesday Everyone!

So I decided to do something a little special for today’s post…

Yesterday I posted on a beautiful franken that was made for me by Zara from Never Unpolished. When I was swatching it, I got inspired to make my own franken.

I’d been thinking about making a pink franken for Pink Wednesdays for a little while now, and I recently got some holographic glitter so I thought, what the hell?

I basically just took an old bottle of NOPI top coat and dumped in some holo glitter and some crushed up eyeshadow from an old Almay palette that I had, and voila!

I’m pretty happy with the way it came out, especially because I’ve only attempted to franken like 2 other times.

Anyway, I decided to name it Pink Floyd…1) because I think the band is pretty awesome and 2) because my last name is Floyd and it’s pink polish, so it totally works 🙂  On a side note: whenever I say my last name to people they think I’m saying “Lloyd” so  ever since I was in high school, it’s become a habit of mine to say “Floyd. Like Pink Floyd”, then people go “ohhh, I got it”.

So enough with all the words, peep the pics:

Mr. Blue Sky

Hey Peeps! Happy Tuesday!

Today I’ve got a quick post for you featuring an awesome franken that was given to me by the lovely Zara from Never Unpolished.

I got it in a swap I did with her a couple of weeks ago, and it was perfect timing as I’m currently doing a month of blues for Autism Awareness.

I love the frankens that Zara creates and features on her blog, so I feel super special to have one of my own-especially because it’s soooo pretty! 🙂

Anyway, it’s called Mr. Blue Sky, and it’s a beautiful milky sky-blue with multi-colored glitter in it. I’m not sure what her franken recipe was, but methinks the glitter is from Milani Gems.

It applied really smoothly and I immediately fell in love with it. In the pics below I used 3 coats. Peep it:
