Fridays are devoted to my adventures in frankening. Disclaimer: Franken at your own risk. Mixing polishes, especially those with different formulas from different manufacturers, may have undesirable and/or volatile results.
I got a little more ambitious with my frankening today. I mixed four polishes together to come up with this beauty. I call it ‘Cranberry Christmas’. Coming up with nail polish names is half the fun of frankening!
It’s got a cranberry colored base with small gold glitter and larger green flakies. I don’t think the green was picked up by the camera, but they are what looks like the larger glitter in the pictures. I used equal parts Nails Inc Chelsea Embankment and Finger Paints Flecked, half of Essie Wicked and two drops of Marshmallow. Wicked is more a burgundy, and the white toned it down and brought out the red.
I’ve become more intrigued by the possibilities of making my own polish and now I want to try making it from scratch. I know there’s a lot to learn, but it definitely will be fun. Tell me, do you have a favorite franken recipe? If so, email your pictures and recipe and I’ll post it next week.
