Franken... Tuesday?


Today I've got my first (even before Rockin' Robin) Franken. This was what happened when I tried to make a Glitter in the Air dupe and failed miserably. The only thing I remember about this formula is that there was Rimmel Grey Matter, a couple of Hello Kitty Glitter Mini's, a Hot Topic clearance Glitter, and some Wet n Wild Glitters.

The polish itself actually turned out really nice. It's a light grey with a jelly finish that dries super shiny! I almost didn't need topcoat on top of this but thought it would be a good idea anyways (Frankens aren't exactly fast drying creatures). The Glitter is neat because you can see the various layers I have through the sheer of the grey. This is three coats with Seche Recondition as Base and Orly quick drying topcoat on top.

I'm still not sure what to call this franken. Originally I was going to call it "Rock you like a hurricane" with it being all grey and stormy but I didn't want all of my frankens to have "rock" in the title. I dunno, what do you think?

Here's a franken I did two nights ago that I already have a name for "Sorcerer's Apprentice" This is a really neat deep red-purple with lots of holo hex glitters in it. The pictures lean more blue than the actual polish does but I'm sure it will show up better when I actually swatch this.


  1. I love both of these frankens and the names. Rock You Like a Hurricane is a fun name! I made a grey franken and called it Seattle Grace after the hospital on...Grey's Anatomy. ;)

  2. wa~ this grey looks so pretty! I love it!

  3. This reminds me of Huemorista Hidden Rainbow, but more gray than white. Very pretty!!

  4. Awesome makings! I love the grey!
