For the record, here is a pic of the main character. See that and understand my plight!
As for the franken, I started with Misfits on 8th matte base. Next, I added 3 drops of a thinned out Vanti 805 brown colorant. I then followed it up with 2 drops of TKB's franken white polish colorant. Finally, I added 2 small scoops each of Gold Flakies and Sparkling Taupe Micro Flakies from Glitter Unique
Now, for the concept mani….. I'm kind of nervous to show you guys! Lol
So, I started this mani by attaching some small circular rhinestones and neon studs to my bare nail in a random fashion using clear polish. Then, because I wanted to get rid of the neon color of the stud, I applied two coats of white polish. I finished the mani off with two generous coats of the Elephant Man polish to give the look of skin tone with bumps and deformities. Crazy, right?
For the record, here is the same polish top coated. Looks so different!
The topcoat definitely helps the flakies and the shimmer stand out more. Personally, I prefer it top coated. Formula was super easy though and didn't drag with the thick coats I used. It was opaque at 2 coats for me. Dry time was average to quick as mattes often are.
Well, there you have it, my crazy Elephant Man mani! What do you think? I don't think I could ever rock this again honestly, lol. Either way I hope you liked it and I also hope to see you around next time for more polish adventures! But until then, remember to keep it classy and creative!
