I have been noticeably absent. I know. In my defense, I have been making A LOT of frankens. In an effort to cut back on spending, I’ve stopped buying nail polish. Instead, I am making it.
Never in my life have I tried to hide that I am a dork. A lot of people make franken collections with a really cool theme. The one I am working on now, is based and named after Arnold Schwartzenegger’s portrayal of Mr. Freeze in Batman and Robin. Don’t get me wrong; that movie was terrible and Arnold was his usual cheesy self in a role that was completely and utterly WRONG for him. But that is why I love him. The high cheese factor. In fact, once I am finished with these Mr. Freeze polishes, I should try my hand at Arnold inspired polishes in general. I don’t think it’s been done before. And why would it have been?
Anywho, I will post pictures of my latest pretties, in the hopes that I will shortly be swatching them for you all. Some of them have no names, so any suggestions would be appreciated. Ciao!
Ice to see you!
I ended up putting this polish into an empty bottle that wasn’t frosted so you could see it better. When I swatch that polish, I will photograph that bottle. This one is called “Ice To Meet You” courtesy of Mr. Freeze.
This needs a name!
Another Mr. Freeze inspired polish, without a name as of yet. I have a few choices lined up and when I swatch this bad boy, I will list the options. Maybe you can help me out a bit!
When I initially started frankening polishes, I wanted to make a collection inspired by one of my favourite shows, Supernatural. I loved Ruby and when I found out that Jared was going to marry Genevieve Cortese (who plays Ruby#2) I was giddy with fangirl excitement. Those two are adorable. Anywho…this polish was a while in the making. I had a hard time finding the perfect vampy base for the shock of red glitter. I think this did the trick.
Excuse my ragged hands and nails...
This one is so pretty, yet so nameless. It’s basically icing in a bottle of nail polish. But I can’t name it “Bottle of Icing” because that is lame. Any thoughts would be appreciated! This will probably be my first swatch post from this round of frankens because…I am applying it right now. It’s VERY pretty and I hope it’s sunny tomorrow!
I am SO happy with how these turned out! Well…the dark one is supposed to be a duochrome blue because I used Essie’s “Dive Bar” to make it. It’s there but it’s very faint. Oh well. Can’t win ’em all.
OK. I need to go. Jamison is hitting random numbers and letters and I am at the end of my patience rope.
Until next time, readers!
