I cannot find my good nail polish remover and had to get the crummy stuff from the dollar store, and I picked up some rather sub-standard cotton squares that left more cotton on my nail than I thought possible. These are pretty crappy pictures, combined with the fact that I worked from 8am-8pm with an hour commute each way.
Excuses aside, I like this color a lot and will be frankening it again when I have more time, sunlight and patience. I will have to take it off straightaway because I definitely cannot wear this one to work at the moment:
It’s a kind of jelly turquiose which is slightly greener in real life. I wish I could have captured this in sunlight, but I will another day.
It’s 2/3 Misa “Pour Me Something Tall and Strong,” a neon creme blue which is fairly translucent, mixed with 1/3 Misa Happy Happy, a creme yellow, and a few drops of China Glaze Whiteout, a white creme. This is my first time to franken with Misa, and it’s not a bad polish, but darn, it’s translucent. That translucent quality was great for this franken, but I could see it getting annoying if it takes a lot of coats to get bottle color.
I came up with a color similar to Rescue Beauty Lounge Bikini Bottom, but then I added too much white. But I do like this cheery blue and will show you my version of that nice jelly blue/green of Bikini Bottom in another post, another day.
I went a little crazy and decided to make another color from this robin’s egg blue, since I had some left on my pallete. I added gray creme, mixed from black and white, and then a touch of silver shimmer. It’s a nice soft gray with a slight shimmer. It reminds me of pussy willows. This is a color I’d wear maybe once a year, but wouldn’t want to have a whole bottle of.
Oh, and I’m absolutely not forgetting my handcreme tonight. My hands are so dry!
