Twinsie Tuesday: Franken Polish

This week’s Twinsie Tuesday Challenge: franken polish.

Firstly, I want to thank Amanda at Amandalandish and all the rest of the talented bloggers for allowing me to be a part of Twinsie Tuesday. I cannot stress how honored I feel to be involved with this! So thanks again!

I actually didn’t own a single franken polish until I was put to this challenge. I then began experimenting with a few polishes that I don’t use and came up with a few of my very first frankened polishes. I was having so much fun! I could not believe that I have never tried this before. I admit it’s a tiny bit challenging but so rewarding when you’re finally able to pick up that polish and stare at it in awe! With that said, this is what I came up.


The picture seriously does no justice. There are very tiny purple glitters that you can’t see and it really just adds to the polish. I really love the color. It looks really elegant and definitely something I don’t already own. I used 3 coats. Easily, it could’ve been 2 coats but I wanted it to look perfect! 

I started out with the bottle filled with a topcoat ¼ of the way. I then added a black based polish that contained very tiny purple glitter then added a shimmery nude to help lighten the color. Lastly, I added a gold glitter polish and voila! 

Anywho, I really hope you enjoyed this because I did! What do you think?

    1. Hi Rychelle! Thanks! This was actually my very first time frankening. (= On the side gadgets, its really simple. This is what I do (even thought it might not be the right way to do it, thats how I like it): Go to "Design" then click on the "Add a Gadget" which is on the side bar then just pick and choose which ever one you like. For the one I used, I choose "Picture" then added your picture and a link. I hope that makes sense. Let me know! Hope that helped!
