Girly Purple


 

Today I’m showing you another franken I made some time back. I like frankening, but I am super careful about advertising them, because some of them look so gorgeous in the bottle and turn out horrible on the nail. I love the amount of glitter bombs out there by various indie polish makers, but I am also very cautious about buying some of them, as some, not all obviously, are made quickly and not tested long enough. So I only post my frankens after wearing them at least once before, which means at least a couple of weeks of them resting untouched in my polish vault. This particular unnamed franken is one of the ones I’m happy with (I make about 10 finished frankens when I sit down and get creative, and usually one or two make it in my nail polish vault, as the other ones have issues with bleeding or curling glitters, etc), so I wanted to share it.

I used 2 coats of Revlon Girly as a base. Girly is a pastel lavender polish with intense silver shimmer provided by the silver particles in the polish. It dries to a somewhat brushed metallic steel look, this is the best I can describe it. It looks like our kitchen counter :) 

The franken polish itself is a sheer purple (yes, you heard right! I made something purple!) jelly, interspersed with blue, silver and pink hex glitters in various sizes. There are also occasional bar silver glitters in there, but not many. I haven’t worn it on its own, but I assume one would need many coats for it to be opaque. I used two thin coats for the pictures below, and I had no problems applying the glitter, as the base of the polish is rather thick.

What do you think, do you like it?

  1. Love your franken! Does the Revlon base suspend the glitters?
