♥ New Teal Frankens ♥

 The color teal, is essentially a mixture of Blue, Yellow with some white & black thrown in. I didn't really have a plan when I made these... I just had a hankering to do some frankening.The middle bottle above, Is a mixture of Billie 'Electric Yellow' and Billie 'Blue'. On the right, is Billie Electric Yellow, Blue, and some black and white to create a darker color. On the right, I just added white to the Electric Yellow and Blue mix. I'm not totally satisfied with the middle franken, I would like it to be a tad more opaque.... so I may mess around with it a little more.

Most surprising to me is that I actually like this purple/pink shimmer that is showing up. When I have made frankens with this Billie 'French White' polish before, it totally swallowed up any shimmer in the polish I mixed it with. It is very evident on my Middle nail and my Index nail. My PINKY nail in the photo below, is 2 coats of the darker franken with 2 coats of the middle franken over top.

I would love to see someone from the USA whip up some frankens using NYC 'Taxi Yellow Creme' and 'Skin Tight Denim Creme' with some white & clear polish... DANG IT!!!! I regret not buying  NYC 'Taxi Yellow Creme' when I saw it because I cannot find a richly pigmented yellow creme that is cheap right now.

Anyhoo - here is a million photos. All indoors under various florescent lighting. These Billie neon & florescent polish I have used dried to a satin finish. So unless otherwise notes, I have used 2 coats of Nailene Acrylic Strong Top Coat.

 I am in love with all three of these frankens and will be redoing my nails nightly for full mani's. Hopefully with some nail art♥



 - Above & Below -

My middle finger has no T.C.  and this was 4 coats. Because this polish on my middle finger is only Billie 'Blue' and Billie 'Electric Yellow' mixed together it is very sheer. I mixed the other two frankens with white (RING finger) and White & Black  (INDEX finger)



Oops! These are in the opposite order that they appear on my nails!

L to R - Billie 'Blue', 'Electric Yellow', 'French White' & 'Black'

I like these! So cool that they came from the Billies that look like they don't have any of the glitter stuff in them. Why do the two darker ones look like they have a shimmer? -- now that I've read I see it's from the white -- The lightest teal reminds me of For Audrey! Overall, very nice frankens :)

Great shades and it seems like they apply flawlessly too? Beautiful! Especially the shimmering middle finger.

Last week I made one a bit like you're wearing on your ringfinger (out of For Audrey) but have yet to test how it applies. Pics coming over the weekend :)
