♥ Franken - 'Shenanigans' ♥

2 coats of franken 'Shenanigans' with 1 coat of Nailene T.C.

( I have like, 17 mani's waiting to be posted - this is an older one from around St.Paddy's Day )

Dang - as soon as I applied T.C. to the last nail, I banged my middle finger into my desk top - nothing some glitter or nail art cant fix. I made this franken with a base of Nat Robbin's 'Greed' and some white body shimmer and a few drops of a black glossy polish. It turned out awesome and exactly the shade of green I hoped for.

All my frankens made with this white body shimmer; which is an old, oooold Caboodles body shimmer I scored for .50 cents at an awesome bargain store in my town, usually end up having an easy to work with formula. I have found using an already colored polish, instead of clear, I manage to make frankens that apply alot better and do not separate as drastically, then those made with just clear polish. Some frankens I have made with clear are very difficult to shake and mix up after they have been sitting around for a few months. So when those sheer or buff french manicure-type shades of polish are in a bargain bin for .50 cents = snap them up, they make great frankens!
