I'm back! So I'll show you a franken :)


I am back from my birthday weekend. Well actually I got back on Monday but I have been incredibly lazy since then and not done a lot!

I have lots to tell you and things to show you from my birthday but that will all be in another post when I've had a chance to take some pictures and stuff. What I will tell you now though is that I had one of the best weekends ever and I was completely spoilt.

So on to this post. Before I went away I did a franken which I really love.

I used -

Cover Girl Boundless Color - City Lights with 2 unbranded polishes I've had for a while.

I have no idea where the 2 unbranded polishes came from originally but I didn't particularly like either of them on their own so I decided to mix them and add some more sparkle!

This is the result -

No flash

With flash

I love it!

Here are some pictures of it on my nails. Most of them are with flash as it was the only way to capture the purple in it!

That last picture is without flash but I think you can still see the purple in it.

It's my favourite franken of the few I've made. For once it's not blue!!

Any suggestions for names are welcome :)

Lots of posts coming up over the next few days. I have so much to show you all!

I think you should name it after your birthday. Something like 'flirty thirty'(it was your 30th, wasn't it?) or 'birthday belle' or 'happy purpleday to you'.

I am a lurker and reader of your blog - I found you via Helen and Sheenie's nice things. I am also from Newbs, too!

That's gorgeous on you. Glad your back and happy your birthday was good. Can't wait to hear all the details and see all the pictures. What fun to be home and be spoiled! Your nails are looking lovely.

What a lovely franken! It reminds me of Color Club Wild at Heart. In the spirit of this reminder and the fact that it has been your birthday, how about naming your franken 'Wild party'...?

Thank you everyone :)

Rachel - I love your ideas for names! I just need to decide which one...
Another Newburian! Such a small world!

Lucy - I've actually just chopped my nails off again!! They're the shortest they've ever been but they do grow very fast :)

avroys - I love your name suggestion too. Decisions, decisions!

Love all your Konads :D

The unnamed polishes are from a set from Virgin vie - I think the set was called Bijou. This is the black one

I think your other one is called Bijou Amethyst :)
