Got to ask you, readers, something. I posted that I would end my giveaway on 4/30. Would it be a bad thing to move it up? I feel it is just too far away and I want to give stuff out sooner. Let me know what you think in the comment box.
I’ve been swatching today and previewing workout DVDs; my two favorite hobbies, combined together. I stayed home all day except for my morning walk/run. I’ll do some more of it, again, tomorrow. What a perfect weekend for me. I hope you got to do something fun yourself.
This is a fun mani. Take a look…
I took an old bottle of Sally Gal’s ‘So 70’s’ polish and mixed in Aromaleigh’s ‘Mela #9’ mineral shadow. I didn’t give it much thought, just grabbed a shadow and started mixing. My franken is in the middle. Oh, man, that was easy!!
(Note: Sally’s doesn’t use names on these babies anymore. GASP!!! It’s now #315)
I surprised myself that it turned out. And I love the color. Here’s what it looks like on me…
Very sheer, so it would be an overlay, best of all. And, because I was using a very old bottle of ‘So 70’s, it was seriously thick. I put in a couple drops of acetone but it didn’t do much good at all. I didn’t know where my polish thinner was. Oops.
This franken hasn’t lost any of its sparkly-ness with the mineral shadow color. It’s full of iridescent glitter in a teal base. I name my creation ‘Franken Kiss and Teal’.
This is three coats and it was saturated. It was gritty even with Seche Vite over it. But, I’m going to let this slip by because I’m so pleased with myself. 😉 I’m going to ask my Mom to put it up on the refrigerator door as my current work of art.
I’m going to use this polish one more time, over a base coat. What color do you think I should use? And, if you are into making frankens or have been wanting to try it for the first time, Sally’s has these baby nail polishes at by 2, get one free. It’s an inexpensive way to try it out.
