Hump daaaaaay! Hope everyone's week has been going well! Let me tell you, I am super excited to be back at work! By excited I mean the opposite of that…. yeah…. I'm pretty sure I'm going to need a vacation from my vacation. But enough of my complaining, let's get to today's awesome glitter topper shall we?

This polish started with TKB Glamour Base. Then, I added 2 medium scoops of silver holo shreds,  and two small scoops each of .008 black holo hex and fire red hex (all from Glitter Unique)

Forgot to get a good bottle shot…. soooooo I got this one. Oopsies.

Swatches show one coat over Monday's Snow Globe franken plus fast dry top coat. The polish was thick due to the glitter but spread super easily on the nail. The shreds did require SOME placement, but it was pretty minimal. Everything was relatively smooth after one coat of top coat. This top coat was super sparkly and all the holo caught the light and it was amazing!

Well that's all for today my dears! See you back next time for more franken creations! But until then, remember to keep it classy and creative!


Today's Supplies Are From:
* Glamour Base: TKB Trading
* Holo Shred, Fire Red Holo, and Black Holo: Glitter Unique

Snow Globe

Back to another beginning of the week! I am flying back home today since our week long vacation is over, albeit too quickly. So while I am not super stoked to be returning to work, I am pretty excited about this polish, even if it didn't turn out exactly like I'd hoped.

Since the concept is widely unattainable, I attempted to make a white linear holo, but I did mine with a little flair. I started this polish off with TKB Glamour Base, I then added one medium scoop of TKB Noble sparks (which are a silvery white shimmer), 4 drops of thinned out TKB White Nail Polish Colorant, one medium scoop Glitter Unique Rainbow Pearl Tiny Flakes (which are predominantly white but flash colors of blue, red, purple, and gold in the right lighting), and finally, 6 drops Spectraflair4u size 14 w/ base.

The last photo is probably the most accurate in terms of color. Due to the fact that the Spectraflair is grey, it casts a light grey into the white base. Therefore, this polish is walking the very fine line between white and a very light grey. However, it's close enough to white that I am happy with the base color. Plus, the linear holo and the teeeeeeeeny tiny multicolored flakies make this polish so complex. The last pic shows a little of the flakies but my camera did not want to pick up on their multi colored goodness. Now for the formula, not gonna lie it was kind of a pain in the butt. If I did not polish carefully, the polish would pull up in places if I went over it twice with my brush. I do understand that it was probably my fault as I tried to load all the pigment and flakies I could into it. I think a little bit of thinner would go a long way in this baby. That being said, swatches show two coats plus fast dry top coat.

Well, that's all for today my dears! Hope you have an easy start to your week! See you next time for more franken goodness! But until then, remember to keep it classy and creative!

Orange Appeal

Happy Friday my lovely lacqueristas! Hope everyone's week has been treating them well. I've been in Colorado since Tuesday and so far I have LOVED it! I know a lot of your were so sick of it by the end of this winter, but I got to see snow for the very first time…. at age 28. Crazy right? Anywho, let's get into this week's franken pretty! This one started off with TKN Luster base. Then I added 2 drops of Vanti805's brown oxide which I cut with some base and thinner to extend the life of the color. Next,  added one small scoop each of TKB Bronze Reflecks, Burning Leaves, Copper Reflecks, Gold Reflecks, and Coastal Scents Bordeaux Glitter.

Swatches show, I believe, 3 coats plus top coat. Formula was buttery smooth, thick, and easily spread! It is a little textured from the Reflecks so I do recommend top coat! Now, for those of you that have followed me long enough, you may notice this polish is similar to another polish I had made awhile back

Today's franken has more coppery yellow undertones and is definitely a cooler toned polish. So dupes, no, but cousins, absolutely!

Well my loves, I hope you have a wonderful week and remember to keep it classy and creative!
