My latest batch of frankens..... So far I have only named the one on the right -the light chartreuse color = It is called 'Wild Child' after the old-time caboodle eye-shadow I made it with. My theme for these frankens was Army/military greens. When I made the 'Wild Child' polish I was trying to create a close dupe of NARS 'Platoon'. (Google it) I have never seen it in person but in some photos that I have seen, it is a very unique and gorgeous shade. I think mine turned out a little too bright and peppy. My Franken is a very pretty, vibrant chartreuse/pear color. However I am considering changing the name to AWOL, just for funz.
At the moment I am wearing Wild Child, I have tried many different techniques to get a good indoor photo, however, I am waiting till dusk to try again . I think that the outdoor photos I have taken are as accurate as I am gonna get, but it is still worth a try. Before having a nail blog, I never put much thought into taking close-up photos of objects with accurate color and shade/tone.. It is very HARD!!!! and indoor shots drive me CRAZY!!!!!!
Any-hoo, I have not named these yet. I have to add; that using an eyeshadow BRUSH and gently brushing off eyeshadow into a piece of waxed paper or tin foil or a container, then adding it to clear polish = has worked out great.♥ I had crushed it up before and there was lots of lumps and such, but this way was much better! Thank you for your franken wisdom nevertoomuchglitter.
The first polish on the left, the center polish and the last polish 'Wild Child' (1, 3 & 5 ) are all made with clear nail polish and eyeshadow. The polish in the center, I was trying to make a dirty bronze/olive. I think it turned out great, I am getting that on my nails tomorrow A.S.A.P.!
The second polish on the left and the second last polish ( 2 & 4 ) are made by mixing neon green, black, and a teal creme polish. I took photos of the process this time, and made sure I wrote everything down. I am looking forward to modeling these soon. In the very last photo - the frankens I made with eyeshadow have settled. I added ballz to all of these, so all that is needed is a good shake, and viola = ready to go! Oh = I am back using my AWESOME 'home made' nail swatches, they are much easier to paint and photograph better.
