♥ 'Opal Radish'- franken ♥

3 coats of Opal Radish with 2 coats of Nailene Acrylic Strong Top Coat
I know I write this about every franken I make, but I am elated about this franken 'Opal Radish' and the other franken I made with Sally Hansen Opal Truth; 'My Precious'. I think they are marvelous and like a few other frankens I have made, I will be searching for a 'real' polish just like this.

I whipped this up using an older Sally Hansen Maximum Growth polish, and a few drops of another older polish; Hard As Nails 'Radish'. I used 3 older empty polish bottles and filled each one approximately half way with the Opal Truth, then added a few drops of polish colour. These 3 frankens were on the sheer side, and so I applied 3 to 5 thin coats waiting for each to dry - which didn't take long, thankfully.

Even though my franken-ing skillz have gotten pretty amazing over the year or so - it still hasn't stopped my from wanted to purchase every single bottle of polish I see at the grocery store/ department store. Thankfully there is alot of beautiful and decent quality polish available at those stores that are in-expensive and easily available.

Anyhoo- here is a bunch of photos- I have already worn this pretty franken in a chevron funky french HERE, but needed to wear this beauty on it's own and get some sunshine pic's for my records.

I really like the first one, kind of purple with a pink undertone. :) Well done.

You think up some really cool names for your frankens! These are really nice.
