Franken-Stein's Monster

Hello hello!

For today, I am sharing something extra special.  Ever since I started blogging, I wanted to try making a franken.  The other day I decided to give it a go!  I started with an old, half empty bottle of Sally Hansen clear top coat with nail hardeners in it.  I thought it would be neat to have my own polish be a nail strengthening polish!  Then I added some eye shadow to get the color.  And topped it off with two different kids of glitter.  Since it is my first franken, its green, and I'm a little monster, I named it Franken-Stein's Monster.  Hope you guys like it!

The glitter was a little hard to manage like some glitters are, and the formula was a little goopy becasue I started with an old bottle of top coat.  But I added a lot of pigment, so what you see here is ONE coat! Yum!

Also, I had two MAJOR nail breakages this week, bleh.  So please excuse my nubs and my hiding pinky.

Here's what I used:

My own franken! LittleMonsterx14's Franken-Stein's Monster

Base coat - Nailtiques Formula 2
Top coat - Seche Vite

What do you think of my first attempt at a franken?  I'm thinking about giving it away!  I'm going to add a poll in the top right of my page, so you guys an anonymously let me know if you would be interested in owning Franken-Stein's Monster!

Claws up!
