More fun with franken!

I want to show you a couple of frankens I have made by mixing store bought polishes only.

First, meet the Beach Smurf - a small blue guy, stuck in a lot of pale sand:

Beach Smurf

Beach smurf is a mix of:
No7 Clear polish
HOT! Splash Dive
Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow
Wet 'n' Wild : French White Creme

I use the clear base to keep the polish from being too opaque and hiding the glitters.

The next franken is Disco Pony - my little pony with a disco twist

Disco Pony

Disco Pony is a mix of:
Sally Hansen: Blue Me Away
HOT!: Splash Dive
Wet 'n'wild Party of Five Glitters
Revlon: Plum Attraction
Wet 'n' Wild: French White Creme

When I first started frankening, I had a lot of fun with sinking, melting and discoloured glitter. I had a lot of glitters from a local craft store, and I decided to test them individually to see if any of them were any good. So I put them all individually in a bit of base, and here is what happened:

Some lasted an hour, some lasted a day and a few even lasted a week, but in the end they all started dissolving and losing colour to the base. No wonder all those first polishes went weird after a while!

Have you tried frankening or would you like to try it?

  3. You are SO clever - you really aught to start making polish, wouldn't it be great with our very own Danish Indie polish maker, I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the Beach Smurf, poor little guy stuck in the sand, I'm sure he would feel much better her at my place ;)
