My First Franken!

Good morning beautiful people! I hope those of you on the East Coast have made it through the night unscathed, Nemo has dumped at least a foot of snow in our area! I don't mind being snowed in though, it gives me time to catch up on cleaning, laundry, and most importantly, swatching!

Today I am really excited to show you all my first franken! For those of you that may not be familiar with the term, a "franken" is a polish made by mixing together a bunch of other polishes. For this franken (which I have yet to come up with a name for!) I mixed three different polishes. My base was Wet N Wild Spoiled Nail Junkie, then I added lots of China Glaze Luxe and Lush. To finish it off with some extra shimmer, I used a little Orly Twilight. After some thinner, this baby was good to go! 

I think this is really beautiful, it has a jelly-like turquoise base, packed with glitter and flakies and shimmer - what more could you ask for!? For my first try at frankening, I think I dun good :P All these photos are layered over Zoya Ibiza.

Here is a super close-up shot....

and a bottle shot! :)

I am really excited about this, I hope you guys like it too! Frankening is a whole lot of fun, and there are just endless possibilities!!! 

If you have any ideas as to what I should name this bad boy, let me know! It reminds me of oceans and mermaids!
