We'll Never Be Royals

Hello my dears, hope everyone has had a wonderful start to their week. I'm going to try and keep this post relatively short as I've been battling a migraine for awhile. That being said, bet your are wondering what kind of franken could possibly have spawned a name from a lyric like Lorde's "Royals"? The answer is this one

I also want to apologize as I'm not entirely sure what was going on with my brain when I was photographing. I'm missing a couple of my normal shots. 

Anywho, after having the standard 3/4 of a bottle of TKB Luster Base, this polish started off with a brand new colorant that I found from an Etsy shop called Vanti805 and it is a liquid polish colorant called Violet #2 Breeze Color Base. Please be aware when looking through the shop, that some of the colorants are formulated to be much more concentrated than others. For example, the Breeze Color Bases are better for making jellies and are not meant to make opaque polishes. So, I added 6 drops of Violet #2. I finished the polish off with one small scoop of Bronze Reflecks. Easy peasy.

One coat over China Glaze VIII (kicking it old school!)

Swatches of the polish alone shows three coats plus one coat of HK Girl top coat and there is still VNL. So if that bothers you, this jelly will obviously be a layering polish for you. Despite the glitter, the polish dried smoothly. While the formula was easy and self leveled well, I found this polish…. I dunno, boring? It needed a new dimension of maybe smaller shimmer or larger glitter, but I think it just seems unfinished as it is now. I love the idea and that gorgeous royal purple color, but I don't think I could wear this again without spicing it up. What do you think?

Well that's all for today my loves! Hope you have a fabulous day and I will see you later for more franken pretties! But until then, remember to keep it classy and creative!
