My 1st Frankens - Part 1.

Reactions: 
I dove into my slew of polishes that I won from Addicted To OPI-yum and came out on the other side with 10 frankens. I'll be showing you 6 of them today!

I decided to break it up into two parts since I knew it would be picture and text heavy; here are the blue and green frankens I made: (2 coats of each polish)


Spottie Dottie: My favorite Sanrio Character back when I was a kid.
- 1/4 Milani Jewel FX, Silver
- 1/4 L.A. Colors Color Craze, Jewel Tone
- 1/2 Sally Hansen Diamond Strength, Tender Teal

Tokens: Often found in the water fountain at the local amusement park.
- 1/8 Milani Jewel FX, Silver
- 1/8 Milani Jewel FX, Gold
- 1/4 L.A. Colors Color Craze, Treasure Island
- 1/2 Sally Hansen Diamond Strength, Tender Teal


Snowballs Chance: Kinda like a snowball's chance in hell, but without the fire and brimstone.
- 1/8 Milani Jewel FX, Silver
- 3/8 L.A. Colors Color Craze, Aqua Crystals
- 1/2 Sally Hansen Diamond Strength, Tender Teal


Glittah!!!: It just pops in my head.
- 1/4 L.A. Colors Color Craze, Treasure Island
- 3/4 L.A. Colors Color Craze, Jewel Tone

Moar Glittah!!!: Even more of it.
- 1/8 L.A. Colors Color Craze, Treasure Island
- 1/4 Milani Jewel FX, Silver
- 1/4 Milani Jewel FX, Gold
- 3/8 L.A. Colors Color Craze, Jewel Tone



Treasure Trove: Coins hidden in thick green foliage.
- 1/4 Milani Jewel FX, Silver
- 1/4 Milani Jewel FX, Gold
- 1/2 L.A. Colors Color Craze, Treasure Island

Side note: I never knew that L.A. Colors was Cruelty-Free; they even have the Peta symbol on their bottles!!! Love it!!!

Now, I have bottle shots for you! (You didn't think I would leave those out, did you?!?)







I love the way this one looks in the bottle!
 My two favorites (other than the bottle shot above) are Spottie Dottie and Moar Glittah!!! (Treasure Trove is really goopy and difficult to apply; it would be best as a layer over a base color). I wanted to try them both on to see how they looked on me:


Full Sun; Sorry about the glare.

Wow! I love Spottie Dottie; it's a little sheer as you can see some visible nail line and the silver hexes are a little sparse in comparison to the nail wheel swatch, but I can always add a little more of the Milani Jewel FX in Silver. The formula was nice and easy to work with and it dried fairly quick. I could always add a 3rd coat to eliminate VNL.

On my Index and Middle I applied 3 coats of Moar Glittah!!!. My Ring and Pinkie have 1 coat of Moar Glittah!!! over 2 coats of L.A. Colors Color Craze, Aqua Crystals. Moar Glittah!!! makes me think of a crazy version of Lippman's Happy Birthday (including the many dupes out there) but I didn't want to have to invent another name like Pinata, Celebration, or anything else relating to celebrating an event. So, I went with the word that pops into my head every time I pick up a glitter polish: GLITTAH! It also comes with a funky accent and the H is long and drawn out. Of course this one also has silver and gold hexes so it needed more... as in MOAR (I know that you know I'm talking about LOL Cats and ICANHAZCHEESEBURGER). Don't get me started on bad grammar; Initially, I was irked with this silly craze of misspelling on pet photos but after awhile I just couldn't resist...It's too cute! I also believe this is how my Shih tzu mix, Penny, speaks in her head.

Hey, guess what??? You made it to the end of this post... Yes, you did! Congratulations!! Can you imagine if I had included the other part??? I loved putting these all together and I can't wait to show you the next half!

Note: Milani and L.A. Colors are Cruelty-Free. Sally Hansen is NOT Cruelty-Free.
