Plug Yourself Sunday and a new Franken; Welcome to the Jungle


Franken Welcome to the Jungle - 2 coats No Top Coat

AHHHHHH! This turned out exactly as planned.  A Blue/Grey polish with teal shimmer. So its Grey, but not boring because the teal shimmer is very evident. I made this with NYC East Village, and a black creme and a white creme ( or Grey - whatever) The sun is not up yet, but here are a few indoor fluorescent photos without top coat.

I plan on adding something more to this and will update.... eventually.

Meanwhile please add your nail blog to my comments, I spent so much time reading and finding new blogs last week I barley added my own posts! I know it's sappy and cheesy but I am so thankful that a medium like this exists - I spend hours and hours a week reading nail/beauty blogs....


the polish i used - NYC East Village




and a comparison of some similar colours of the first franken I wore from my 80's metal power Ballad's Collection of Franken-polish.

I love the colour of Sally Hansen Teal Take-off on my ring nail, but is is so thick and needs to be applied with lightning speed. Normally I appreciate that, but this dries so fast that it sometimes makes application difficult. My franken is close in colour but much more shimmery.

Always an excellent franken. You know I do a lot of frankening too and I know you've commented on my blog before. Here is my latest creation:

Oooh, the new franken is so pretty! I searched my room for my bottle of East Village and I can't find it! I think I may buy a bottle and try some frankening with it since, as you have proved, it seems great for that!
