I cooked up two more frankens the other night! I can't believe how much fun mixing nail polish is - but it's a blast I tell you. It's kind of like cooking in the kitchen without a recipe, and it either tastes great or nobody finishes their plate that night. I'll admit, I have about 2 or 3 Franken Fails that I did when I first started doing this (about a month ago, lol), but I got some really good advice, and please forgive me girls, but I can't remember if it was Amanda of Dr. Frankenpolish or Super Jen from Never Too Much Glitter. The advice I was given, was that when you are first starting out, use colors that you actually like before you start trying to turn that ugly color into polish magic. I think that is where I went wrong on my first couple of Franken Fails.

I am only going to show you one franken today and I will have the other one up in a couple of days for you all. The first one is a navy blue with lots of holo glitteryness to it. Again, I would LOVE some help in naming this bad boy, so your guesses are more than welcome in the comments section.
The Asian Girl just pointed out that this looked alot like OPI DS Fantasy, when I checked it out, I must say this really is pretty damn close! I wish I had a bottle to compare, because I think these are about as close as you can get! Here is a pic of OPI DS Fantasy.

LMAO !! I don't know if it was the green paper in the background that caused my fingers to look so red or what, but that is what it looked like looking through the camera. I thought it was kinda neat so I used it here. Very Christmasey, eh?

Ok, so there ya have it. My guess is SPARK IN THE DARK, but as always, I LOVE to hear your guesses!! So post them in the comments section!
