“Franken” is one of those words that I learned about when I started reading nail blogs. For those who do not know, a franken is a customized nail polish blend made at home. I have no idea who coined the term or where it came from; most likely some kind of nail blog or forum. Being the crafty gal that I am, I love the idea of making my own colors, so I decided to give it a whirl last night, and here is what I came up with!
Dry cuticles and not quite grown in broken nails aside, I am seriously in love with my creation!
What I used:
Martha Stewart glitter in ‘green agate’
A random Wet’n’Wild polish that was a creamy shade with some glitter
Sally Hansen Yellow Kitty
Claire’s Mood Polish
These photos were taken outside on an overcast day. The Martha Stewart glitter is so pretty and I really like the shade of green that happened here. It’s kind of sea foam mixed with seaweed.
Here’s the glitter up close. It is SO sparkly under light. I can’t wait to see what it looks like in the sunshine!
