Franken -- Heavy Metal

Eeeee!! Look at one of my newest frankens! I'm in love with it :)
I named this baby after Lady Gaga's song Heavy Metal Lover, one of my favorite songs at the moment. It just seemed so fitting, cuz I mean...look at it! The glitter, the shimmer, the base color...it's crazy! I adore this.
I don't even know how to describe the color of this. I used two coats, and it's like a dark charcoal, multi colored foil, filled with every shade of shimmer, some random glitter, a couple flakies and some larger silver holo glitter. In the right lighting you can see the almost-duochrome-ness of it, and in certain lighting, it even looks a little holo-y.
This is so ridiculously random with the shimmer and everything...I'm in love with it. I can't even stand how much I love it. Ah!!

Sincerely, Cat

Essie Pretty Edgy w/ OPI Fresh Frog of Bel Air accent

This is an oldie from this summer that I found in my drafts! Here's Essie Pretty Edgy with an accent nail of OPI Fresh Frog of Bel Air.
Obviously since these pics were taken a couple months ago, I'm not positive on number of coats, but I do remember that Pretty Edgy had a great formula, so I'd assume I used 2 coats, and Fresh Frog was not so much a great formula. I used at least 3 or 4 coats of the glitter, if not more. It wasn't actually the formula that wasn't good, it's just that it's one of those glitters where full coverage is nearly impossible. That's fine with me, though.
I really like this combo. Pretty Edgy is so gorgeous. I can't believe it was still in my untried pile! Crazy!
