another pretty purple franken mani = stripes ?

here is another simple mani I created using the franken polish's I made recently. I tried to use scotch tape for this mani but ended up doing it without scotch tape. I think that using the thick polish that I used for this manicure was a bad idea. Next time I try something like this I will use normal nail polish because this dried very fast and created alot of bumpy-ness and texture.

I added a coat of a franken i made with some shimmery micro-glitter polish and alot of clear. I made it for this specific situation when a mani that I just did needs some camouflage for flaws such as lumps/bumps gouges etc.

.... and another gif~

frankens, Billie Purple Rain, Nailene Top Coat and a shimmery franken I made for layering

I used tape for the first layer, but ended up doing it without the tape, my lines are surprisingly straight! I had to go over alot of areas and it became very bumpy and lumpy.

this is with a coat of clear and a coat of top coat.

and this is with a coat of the shimmery layering franken. I disguised the lumpy-ness with the micro-glitter polish

check out how lumpy this was, I need like 3 or more coats of TC!

- strange I did not take a finished photo of this manicure with my regular hand poses. I will try  this again with slower drying polish, and without any tape. The shimmery sparse glitter I used hides all the little mistakes I made. I think that tracing the lines with a glitter stripe polish would be beautiful, too!

Haha, I thought I was losing my mind there for a second when the picture changed. I thought, "I swear I just saw that with sparkles!" ... It looks great! :)

I'm really surprised at how smooth they came out (compared to how lumpy they were). Its like magic! And also really Cute :)

Love the franken! though purple isn't exactly my favorite colour, and also love the striped mani :) Like the whole ton-sur-ton thing that's going on.

Pretty lilac shades. Like the diagonal stripes. Reminds me of wrapping paper I once had. Very pretty.
