Still on the franken polish subject, i have said before that i will be making a post on how to make your own franken polish. It's really very simple. The idea behind it is to just mix different polishes to come up with your own unique polish. This is a good way to put the polishes that you don't reach for anymore into good use. Who knows, you might be able to come up with something really unique (which most often happens!)?
I have several franken polish that i had shared with you. One of my favorite is my first franken called Midnight Fantasy & of course the last one, which i used to join a franken contest called Island Cocktail. Speaking of which, i am really grateful for all of those who had voted for me. As what i said on our nail art group, as long as i don't have a zero, i'm already happy. I'm so overwhelmed with the positive feedback that i have been getting because of my entry. So thank you again for the support, ladies!
Honto ni Arigato!
Now i'm going to share with you how i made this really cute franken polish using polishes that we have here in the Philippines.
This is one of my franken that i call Flakystein!
Kirei de sho?
I'll give you better pics later so that you'll be able to appreciate its awesomeness! hahahaha!!!
On we go to the tutorial...
I used polishes that i bought here in the Philippines.
The 3 flaky polishes are 24k polishes that i bought at SM Fairview & the glitter polish at the far left is the one from Beauty & Butter. You can substitute any glitter polish that you have, or you can entirely skip it & it would still be beautiful!
Here are some pictures for a closer look.
Love this one! It changes from orange to green then blue depending on the angle.
Sorry, i didn't realize that i don't have a separate swatch for this.
You can just refer to the swatch that i had on the cap. It changes from green to blue.
So, i just mixed all 3 of them in an empty bottle like so...
Another important thing when you franken is to use stainless balls so that you will be able to mix them nicely.
Then you shake it vigorously!
You have your own flakystein!
Time for more swatches!
Flakies show best underneath a black base, but you can use other colors as well.
Blurred swatch so you can see the play of colors from the flakes & the glitters.
See the different array of colors?
It changes depending on the angle of your nails! By the way, i do not have a top coat but look how glossy it is!
Flaky polishes are L-O-V-E, ne?
My Galaxy Glam was also made from the 24k flakies.
I just added Spectraflair 14 to have that extra oomph!
There are lots of blogs out there that has a few tips & techniques when it comes to frankening. You can research more to know what finishes would suit what you have in mind.
So, now that you know how to franken polishes, be creative & start making your own!
I would love to see your own franken polishes too!
Hope you all are having a great day!
