Franken Polish!

Hey Ladies! Hope you are all well :) I've just spent the day at home today, so I thought I'd try out something I've been reading about ...

I'm not sure whether you will have heard of 'franken polish' before or not. To explain in the most basic way what it is, I would say it is simply mixing different nail colours together to create your own. I know there can be a lot more to it, but I'm still learning - so this is as far as I'll be going right now. I gave it a go for the first time today and it was fun & easy.

I took a nearly empty 15ml nail polish bottle and rinsed it out with nail varnish remover. I then filled it half way with a blue polish, a quarter more with a cream colour and a small amount of red. I filled the bottle to the top with a shimmer. Below are the nail varishes I used.

Shimmer was made by mixing a small amount of Beautique Silver Glitter into Avon's Nail Expert 24k Gold Strength.

The end result was this lovely colour, that I have named 'Autumn Pixie' Let me know what you think <3

First attempt at 'franken polish' ^^
