Tascha Twinkletoes - Franken!
This is a franken I created a few days ago. It's the second franken I've ever done and I'm really happy with how it turned out! I definitely don't have any other polishes like it in my collection. YAY!! :) But I had trouble capturing the true color with my camera. Grrr... Oh well. In real life, the jelly base is less purple and more blue - leaning *slightly* toward teal, even. And as you can see from the picture - both in the bottle and on the nail - it's jam-packed with hot pink and bright blue string glitter!
I named it Tascha Twinkletoes. Tascha is a dear friend of mine - we've seen each other through a lot over the past few years and we also share a mutual love of beauty products!!! We were fast friends from our very first meeting and she's priceless to me! Also, in nail polish she's a glitter FIEND and especially loves blues, purples, and greens! This franken SHOUTED Tascha to me right away! :D I'm now thinking of trying to create a small "collection" of frankens dedicated to her... We'll have to see what my brain comes up with! ;)
This is 3 coats, however, I could have gotten away with 2 coats if I had been more careful in application as even for a jelly-glitter this baby is opaque after 2 coats of medium thickness! But I had a few bald spots from brush drag so ended up just applying a full third coat to even everything out. Also, pictured here is my third day of wear and I still have no chips and barely any tip wear! Tascha Twinkletoes dries somewhat slowly and kind of dull so a fast-dry top coat is a must in my book. It has a bit of texture when dry as well, due to all the string glitter, but it is easily smoothed out with 1 coat of top coat.
What do you think of Tascha Twinkletoes? Do you franken? How do you name your creations?
Hope you have a wonderful day and a Happy Easter (to those that celebrate it)! <3
