Glitter Frankens by Beanie

The week before I left on vacation, I got a fun box at work: my winnings from a contest Beanie did on her blog, My Blue Lacquer. Just look at these juicy frankens she made that are now in my stash:



When I finally had a moment to try one of them, I had to start with Las Vegas Watermelon—it's the name I submitted for it as part of the contest, so it's got a special place in my collection. I used three coats because it was just so much fun to see what glitter would come out of the bottle next. Stopping at two coats would have been better to show of the squishiness of the base; maybe next time I'll manage to remember that.







The other colors in the group shot are Purple Nerple (named by Analee, not sure if she has a blog), Blue Sangwich (a bonus color from Beanie that wasn't part of the naming contest), and Are You Yellow-ous? (named by Vickie, also not sure on her blog status).

I'm itching to make more frankens myself, just not sure when I'll fit that in with all the other things I want to do.

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

  6. I love these! I think the pink might be my fav too, but I can't decide. I know these are more spring/summer colors, but I don't know if I can't wait that long to wear mine. I keep pulling them out of my storage box to look at them :)
