Space Frankens Part II

I hope you guys are excited about these! These are my favorite frankens yet. Once again, the colors and finishes of these were inspired by space. :)
And don't forget I'm working on my Franken FAQ and Tutorial so if you have a question about frankens- ask it here.

Heart Nebula, Saturn's Rings, and Devon's Sky.

This is 2 coats of Heart Nebula.

Heart Nebula is a magenta pink polish with a scattered holographic effect.

Did you think I was going to make a franken collection without a holo?

I haven't tried this one in the sun, but I'm sure it's stunning.

What I used:
3/4 Sally Hansen Purple Diamond
1/4 Wet N Wild Red Red.

This is 3 coats of Saturn's Rings.

Saturn's Rings is a bronze and gold glitter base with holographic glitter. I'm very proud of this one. It applies very well!

After 3 coats, it was pretty much opaque and had great coverage.

Look at all that glitter!

What I used:
1/2 Sinful Colors Pearl Harbor
1/8th Sinful Colors Out Of This World
6 Drops of Clear
3/8th teaspoon NYX Hot Gold Glitter
1/8th teaspoon of: Green, Purple, and Pink Glitter
I also added a few drops of thinner the next day which really helped even it out.

This is 2 coats of Devon's Sky.

Devon's Sky is a dark blue polish with blue and purple shimmer.

Devon's Sky is named after my boyfriend, Devon. He inspired me to make a collection that was themed by the universe so I thought I should dedicate one to him. He's such an awesome guy. :) He's been with me on many polish hunting adventures and was the one to notice that Studio M Purple Medallion was a near dupe for Slamming Red. Today is our 3-year-8-month-iversary.

You can see some of the shimmer here. In real life, it looks awesome.

:) I don't think Devon has ever read my blog but I'm sending him a link for this post. :) So if you're reading this- Hey, Devon! :D

What I used:
1/4 Sinful Colors Let's Talk
1/4 Clear
1/4 Color Club Jewel Tone Blue
1/4 Sinful Colors Let Me Go
10 drops of Black


I hope you guys enjoyed my frankens as much as I do!

  3. I'm digging Saturn's rings! I actually used what seems to be that same purple glitter in my first&only franken, except it melted... Maybe it was the base I used, because yours isn't gloppy! Hmm, maybe I'll give it another go:)
