Fish Scales

Hello my loves! Have you entered my giveaway yet? No?!? Well run, don't walk! A custom franken is just begging for a new home! How's about a new franken to hold you over until the end of the giveaway? I started with about half of a mini bottle's worth of TKB Luster base. I then added about 2-3 drops of TKB Basic Yellow Jellie and 1 drop of Basic Blue Jellie (I ended up thinning these colorants out with thinner in order to prevent myself from over coloring my base since they are so super pigmented). Next, I added a couple drops of Milani Black Magic cream polish. Finally, I  added two big scoops of .008 Gold to Gren shifting iridescent hexes from Glitter Unique and one scoop of TKB Shanika Sun (a gold to green to blue shifting larger particle size shimmer. Smaller than a glass fleck, larger than your standard shimmer). I called this one Fish Scales for reasons that are pretty self explanatory

I see you've noticed that Milani cap.... I got hungry.
... just kidding. My dog decided to express her artistic side.

You can see some of the shift in that macro!

Here is a split panel Iphone photo showing the yellow based green shift to the rich blue.

I loved how all of the facets of the polish came together to create that gorgeous green to blue shift! Swatches show two thick coats plus top coat. It self leveled easily and didn't drag or pool. Well, that's all for today's franken. Next time I see you, it will be Fridaaaaaay!!!! But until then, enter the giveaway, remember to keep it classy and creative, and never forget!
