FRANKEN - BLACK TOP

I made this franken over the weekend. At first I was disappointed with how un-smooth this turned out to be. The more I looked at it though, I kind of liked the asphalt/black top texture that it had and decided to keep it just the way it was. This is to be worn with out a top coat.

I used clear nail polish, black nail polish and black glitter I got from Walmart, it was Martha Stewart brand. I also added a little bit of a dark grey glitter to this that was also Martha Stewart brand.

DANA - Thank You! It was kind of one of those "accident" things that worked out in the end.

i LOVE this!
I have that black glitter Martha Stewart kit! GOTTA MAKE THIS!
I actually made one from that kit but it is mostly that gunmetal silver glitter with just a bit of the bright silver and black for dimension, I call it RockStar
I'll have to share sometime!

SoulSunshine said...

OOOOH!!! I love it, although, it looks like it'll be a beast to take off. It's definitely hot.

What a weird texture - the glitter is very pretty though.

Actually now that I am looking at it a little longer, it is really cool.

This is totally what Lippmann's Funky Chunky should look like. I think you'd be go to work for Deborah Lippmann. I love this look. Looks like a very bumpy road there. Very cool look. I'm so proud of you for making all these frankens. Your doing an awesome job.

Shayla said...

Ange-Marie said...

Nicole said...

Dude! What Lucy said, exactly. I think you could teach them a thing or two about creating polish, this is really cool and I totally would wear it! And of course, that is the perfect name for it :)

Phyrra said...

Tuli said...

I love this look ! I think it turned out to be awesome :-)

Kirsten said...

Oh wow that looks very interesting!
I agree with you about the topcoat. The textured look without a topcoat is really unique.

My first thought was "what the hell?!". But the more I looked at it the more I like it! If I wore this I'd be touching it all day. It looks bumpy, but a smooth bumpy, not a rough jagged bumpy. Did that make sense? Michelle

nihrida said...

WOW! :o Stunner!

Danica said...

I've seen that Martha Stewart brand and thought it was too big and chunky for polish, but it seems to be really nice!
Love this franken, keep it up!

Miss Yaya said...

that's a kooky texture but I love looking at it. Did it chip easily?

Jo said...

Ha! This like screams to me "From the tar pits", really reminds me how tar looks when asphalt is being poured...

clockwork said...

This looks like old Urban Decay gimmick polish Asphalt which my sisters and I went through many bottles of. It was grainy on purpose like this, looks exactly like yours. Needless to say I love your Franken Black Top! Was impossible to shift lol.
