So I am excited to show you today's franken because it showcases one of the polishes I made using my brand new dot glitters from Glitter Unique! I check the website frequently as it specializes in solvent resistant glitter and the last time I checked, I found oodles of dots and lots of awesome glitters! Shipping was also surprisingly fast. Anyways, I started with about 1/3 of a bottle of TKB Luster Base and followed it up with about 3 drops of TKB Basic Blue Jellie and about 4 drops of TKB Basic Yellow Jellie. I then added 2 liberal scoops of Glitter Unique Ocean Mix Glitter ( which has various sizes of hexes and squares in matte mint green and lime green and teal hexes). I then followed it up with 2 scoops of Glitter Uniqie .040 Melon Green Dots and 2 medium sized scoops of Glitter Unique Ocean Blue Holo Dots .118. I mixed it up and was a created was utterly... aquatic. I named it shipwreck!
Sweet sweet dots! Come to mama!
Swatches show two thick dabbled coats plus one coat of Sally Hansen Insta-Dry. I love the squishy lovely jelly-ness and the way it mixes with the green and blue holo glitter. But let. me. tell. you. Those blue dots are difficult to fish out due to their larger size. Maybe its partially due to the smaller neck on the smaller bottle? All I know is it was easier for me to tip the bottle upside down, grab the blue holo dots, place them on the nail, and then fill in the spots around the nail to even it out. Alot of work, but still worth it. Even with the two thick coats, there is still visible nail line, so if this bothers you, a base color should do the trick!
Well that's all for Shipwrecked, I have some more dot glitter frankens coming up in the future so get excited!
I look forward to seeing you back next time but until then, remember to keep it classy and creative!
