Just mixed up a new batch of frankens for summer, and I have to say...I made some good ones this time around! Here's the first one I've worn, OMW.
2 coats, plus one of Seche Vite. Seriously, I liked this in the bottle, but on the nail it's soo stunning. Base color is a medium blue, slightly purple. It's pretty...not quite royal blue, not sky blue, not purple. Hard to describe, but I like it. And then there's the shimmer in it. It's like foil-y silver, blue, and purple shimmer. So pretty. It took a while to perfect this while I was mixing it but I'm really happy with how it turned out. I love making frankens. So relaxing. Seriously, the others I mixed up are really pretty too...I tried to make a good range of colors, and I think I succeeded. They're nice and bright. And shimmery. Yesss.
Loving the shape and length of my nails lately, too. I just want them to keep growing and stop breaking!!! Every time I try to grow out the squares they chip. So frustrating. I don't want round tips, I want square, and I want them long! Aughhh. I've been using Sally Hansen Hard as Nails...hopefully it's working. My nails are just so weak, and it's weird because I don't know why. They never used to be this way...and I used to take bad care of them too, so it doesn't even make sense. Probably just cuz I went square, but still. Whatever.
