The Franken Bust

You asked for it...

... I swatched my franken Nickel and Dime-mond. Needless to say... well I'll just let the pictures do the talking.

First, if you missed my franken post, here's how Nickel and Dime-mond turned out:

I started with China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat and 2 coats of China Glaze Hologram.

(Sorry so messy and blurry! I hadn't cleaned it up yet)
Then I added 2 coats of Nickel and Dime-mond:

I'm sorry the pictures are so blurry. I was so frustrated with this awful franken that I slacked a little bit. And you know what? It was stinky. It actually smelled horrible. I'm not sure if it was the melting of the flakies or what... but it was bad.

I'm sorry for this horrible mani/franken/post. I have a great one for you coming up soon!


  1. Bummer! Well, you know what that means, don't you? You get to try again. :D

  2. Never saw the CG polish before.. Looks pretty!

  3. Oh, bummer! :( I still have never tried Frankening before...

  4. That makes me so sad! The flakies were so beautiful on their own.

  5. I'm not gonna lie, but that is a hot mess! :) Its too bad because it seemed so promising!

  6. Haha I was so embarrassed to post this. Thank you all for understanding!

  7. aww, I'm sorry. It has such a cute name too. I guess you'll just have to try again. OH WELL! ;)

  8. Sorry that it's a bust for you. I find it intriguing though :P Thank you for posting it for us :D

  9. I have this set of neon craft glitters that I tried to mix with acrylic and nail polish and it stunk too! That sucks though, because in the bottle it looks pretty cool.
