Guys, I have a problem. I can't stop frankening berry colors! I love how they look on me, so I automatically assume everyone else must like them too hahaha.. Anyway, here's my latest berry shade, Jazzberry! It's closer to bottle color, the camera washed it out :/ There's medium holo hexes, small black, and gold bar glitter in berry base:] Here's 2 coats:

You like? What shades would you like to see more frankens of??

Sparkly & Girly

Happy happy Friday! Excited for the weekend?? I'm going home to see my little sister in her school musical [Beauty & the Beast, so I'm excited!]. I have a mani I wore last week for you with one of my favorite polishes for spring: Runway Pearl. I don't know what it is about it, but it's just so stinking pretty! It really reminds me of Essie's Kisses and Bises, but opaque. I'm a big fan of how this looks on me, but since you all know I'm a magpie, I had to put some glitter on it! I saw Essie's A Cut Above and slapped on a coat over the 3 coats of RP that I had on and here's the outcome:

I like how the shimmer still shows through the glitter! 

So what are your plans for the weekend? Anything exciting??

Lacquistry's Golf Socks

Guys!! I hit 400 followers!! Yayyyyy:D Thank you all so much, you're insanely amazing.

Okay, good news: I frankened some of the coolest nail polishes I've ever ever made!  Bad news: I used suspension base for the first time for them, and they're pure glitter and TKB is completely out:/ Sooo I guess I might make like 4 bottles or something for now, then follow up later with more pretty polish for you!

Some more good news: the Name my Franken giveaway is over and my esteemed panel of judges [aka my housemates and my best friend that's visiting me tonight] will help me decide name is best! You guys got really creative! Love it.

Finally, I have some springy & summery shades that will be out soon [not all glitter bombs this time haha], and I'll be spending a lot of time remaking the more popular colors for the restock :] So look for that soon, probably Monday night of next week!

Okay, so for all that, you now get a lot of pretty pictures of Lacquistry's Golf Socks [2 coats + 2 coats Glitter Tamer + TC] with no further comment from me:

Girly-Girl Challenge Day 7: Sugar & Spice & Everything Nice!

Ahh, second to last Girly Girl challenge! Today we get to "show off our sweet (or spicy) inspired nails" ! So I want to show you this franken that I've had on my toes for like 2 weeks now. I really love it! Plus, it's been holding up like iron, NO visible wear or chipping :D

I dubbed this one "Shape of My Heart", because the Backstreet Boys are the greatest thing ever ever ever, don't even try to argue ;]

2 coats of Shape of My Heart

Lots of different glitter in here, mostly blue, then scattered holographic square glitter!

Make sure you take a look at the other sweet & spicy manicures!

Twinsie Tuesday's Hyped Up Polish

Happy Twinsie Tuesday:D I love these days, they're seriously so much fun to see what all the other Twinsies have chosen.

I had a hard time choosing a polish for today's theme. There have been polishes that disappointed me, but I generally get rid of them pretty soon after I swatch it and hate it or something. But I saw Sally Hansen's Mystic Lilac and realized that I literally never wear this polish, because 1. the formula is kind of weird in my bottle [too watery but also gets really thick? I don't even know how]. & 2. the color just does not look good on me. So here's Mystic Lilac:

Love the shimmer, hate the base color. It just looks dirty on me. sad panda. I really wanted to love this polish... Oh well.

Let's see some other disappointments:

AllThatGlitters Polishes!

Hi all! I recently ordered 3 polishes from All That Glitters , Space Oddity, Rebel Rebel, and Ziggy Stardust. All are shown here at 3 coats each:]

Space Oddity: 
"a black base with white colored glitters in various shapes and small silver glitters mixed throughout. "

Rebel Rebel: 
"light purple pearly base with gunmetal, white and silver glitters scatted throughout in various sizes."

Ziggy Stardust:
"a coral pink/peach/orange pearly base with gold and white glitters scatted throughout in various sizes. "

How pretty are these?? Space Oddity is definitely my favorite, and the most opaque. Plus the black base looks like it has this speckly sort of shimmer to it. Love! Rebel Rebel was my least favorite, only because it was so sheer. I'm gonna try layering the last two and show you what happens:]

Name my Franken: a Contest!!

Happy weekend!! Okay, so I've been having a really hard time naming this franken, so I'd like to make a little contest. Name my franken & win a bottle of your own!! [plus maybe a little extra something something...:O ]. This is the first franken in a long time that I've made just for myself, with no other reason than that I really really wanted a deep red, complex glitter. there's golden glitter, gold bar glitter, tiny red glitter, big red hex glitter, tiny blue to purple color changing glitter and small black glitter in a deep red base. I'm really really happy & proud of this.

I posted the pictures a little larger to help you see it better:]
