NAME THAT FRANKEN

It has been a while since I have made a franken and asked you all for some help in naming it. So last night I set about doing a few frankens. I came up with three that I really like. This first one is my favorite of the bunch though. Just take a look at this beauty:










Ok, honestly, how freakin' hot is this color?? It is a sort of jellish black base with blue/turquoise glitter running all through it! Only downside, even after three top coats, it is a little lumpy, grrrr! Other than that, I couldn't be more pleased.
So this is where you come in: Give me some suggestions for some names for this in the comment section. Tomorrow I will do a poll and list some of my favorites of your guesses.
****
The BF's Guess: Galactica
My guess: Beat Down or Bruised (since it is black and blue, lol)
Your guess: ??? Let me know in the comments section :)

I love that color! My guess would be Night Vision.

Velvet said...

Hmmm....what about Time Travlers or Doctor Who? It's sooo pretty. It reminds me of outer space. Hence the funky space names...lol!

Dee said...

I am thinking "Planetarium". One of my favorite museum visits. How did you make it? Did you mix a glitter polish with a dark creme?

Kae said...

This is just a random whatever the first thing popped in my head lol..

Obsidian Tonic

Nikki said...

I would name it Meteor Shower...as we have seen those in the UK for the last couple of nights!

kelliegonzo said...

i like galactica!

or to contribute my own: space gaze

Stephanie said...

I like stary night. Looking at your nails reminds me of looking at the sky late at night

The Glitterati said...

I'd name it Starry Starry Galaxy... because it's like Essie's Starry Starry night, but deeper, more mysterious, and more... spacey! :)

gildedangel said...

I would name it "Star-Struck at Midnight"! It really reminds me of the meteor shower that I watched last night!

Karin said...

I'm thinking "Space-ship Visions". Try saying that fast a couple of times. :D

Rockstar Disco! LOL

Very pretty!

Megan said...

You know what that color reminds me of? Telescope pictures of deep space nebulas. It reminds me of the blackness and stars around the nebula before you get to the brilliant colors in the nebula. Thus, I'd call it Nebula's Edge.

rijaH said...

I immediately think of the sky at night.. So Night Sky ;)

kittyluvscolor said...

I love this! I like the BF's Idea but if not that then I would call it 'The Great Unknown' He he. I'm so korny!

Joyce said...

OH MY GOSH! Brooke that franken is absolutely beautiful! I don't have a clever name you can use I just wanted to comment on the colour and say a quick HI :D

But out of all your other suggestions I like the "Starry Night". Although it's similar to Essie's one it still sounds peaceful xx

Trincess said...

Clubbed to Blue =)

KrystalBall said...

OMG LUV this color! I thought of the name "Night Sky". I'd love it if you'd show us what went into it!

Kajsa said...

Dead fallen star! Don't ask why, it just came to me ^_^

Liz said...

Reminds me of Iron Maiden's "2 Minutes To Midnight"! One of my favourite songs ever, and this color is exactly what I would wear for a heavy metal concert (except for Korpiklaani, that would be dark green :P )

Nicole said...

WOW. Seriously, Brooke, you should do frankens all the time. LOL! Weren't you just talking about Angel & Devil collection? This one could be called Sympathy For The Devil ... okay, or Paint It Black, since I'm on the Rolling Stones kick. That kicks ass, if you'll pardon my french. I love it to bits. I'd also like to beg to know your recipe along with the rest of the ladies!
Also, Galactica is pretty cool name too.

Did you read Frank Schaetzings "The Swarm"? Do it, or check out the summary on wikipedia or so, then you will get the perfect name for this franken: YRR.

Seriously, does't it look like some bioluminescent deep sea organism? Plankton maybe, or tiny jellyfish? Google Aequorea to see what I mean...

Inbal said...

it's a gorgeous franken! love this!
you got some good suggestions for names... :-) I'll add some of my own:

"to eternity and beyond"

"diamonds on orions belt"

"nightswimming"

Inbal said...

and in the same direction that velvet suggested, another name:
"outside of the tardis"

who likes the doctor? ;-)

Helen (Nice Things) said...

Some fantastic names there. My first thought was Starlet for some reason :)

Danica said...

This reminds me of my boyfriend - every time we look at polish he loves reading the names. And he thinks he's so creative and he's like "I'd name it 'When Nighttime Falls' and it'd be black, and that's my color " and I told him he didn't invent black with sparkles, that's already been done. It's cute he doesn't realize it, but he's still so passionate about the name and now he's like 'A Clear Night' because you can see the sparkles like stars in a clear night, so your polish reminds me of that!

I might me late but the name I came up with is "Nitro lights".
