My First Franken

Warning: this is gonna be a huge post. So remember that picture I left you guys with before I went off to Hawaii? You know, the one with the two bottles and apparently one of them was a franken? Well today I'm gonna be introducing you to the polish you've all been so patiently waiting for (and probably have forgotten about since it's been so long)! It doesn't quite have a name yet but I'm getting a good number of suggestions. I'm thinking anything galaxy/universe/space related would be awesome. Tons of pictures ahead...

These are the bottle pics that I teased you guys with =P

Rough test swatches I did before a full mani

Spammage of mani pics!

Blurred photos to show off how sparkly the glitter is!

Mah hands! For some strange reason my index finger kept twitching
when I took these photos. Must've been nervous or something =P

Macro shots

The two glitters I used. Top is a gray holographic hex 
and bottom is a silver holographic bar

Here is a short video I made to show the glitter in sunlight

Phew! *Wipes sweat off forehead* That was whole a lotta pictures. I hope you enjoyed! I basically mixed a bunch of base polishes together that consisted of a black jelly, some black with shimmer, and clear polish. I started adding the hex glitter first then added the bar glitter afterwards. I thinned to a consistency I liked and let it settle. Of course the glitter is pretty heavy and since the suspension I used was not meant for glitter, it required a good shaking (and resting!) before application.  Aaaaand, I'm done. Happy Friday people =).
