Blue Sangwich and Glitter in the Air

Late entry today because I was fighting with getting my photos uploaded. I was about to give in and just give up control and do them through Blogger but finally used clues in an e-mail I got from my hosting company to figure out a tweak to my FTP setup that worked and here I am.

When I posted the frankens from Beanies and swatched the pink one last week, a lot of people commented that they'd like to see the blue one, Blue Sangwich. So here it is, three coats of it (no top coat):





Multi glitters in a colored base always make me think of Deborah Lippmann. Beanie's Blue Sangwich is a blue cousin to Lippman's Candy Shop, but I don't have Candy Shop (yet, anyway), so I pulled out Glitter in the Air to sample instead. This is four coats, no top coat:







And here are the two together:





I think you can tell which is which without me telling you. Blue Sangwich is more of a fun party, with lots of colors flitting about, while Glitter in the Air is a more quiet gathering.

UPDATE 28-Nov-2011: Beanie has now got these glitter frankens on offer in her blog sale. I swatched the other colors here and here.

  1. Very pretty! I love the shade of blue.

    I didn't like Glitter in the Air when it first came out but it has grown on me. Not enough to buy it lol but I tried frankening it. It didn't go well lol.

  7. Your version is SO much better. I really wanted Glitter In The Air before I saw swatches... then swatches came out and I was like "woah... I'm paying how much for just nothing really?". Your franken is beautiful!

  10. I prefer Blue Sangwich much more, Glitter in the Air is so sheer, it's disappointing.
