Franken: "Life 'O' The Party"

Yep, I've been am mixin machine lately, and this one is super easy.  I first heard about this franken on Reflection, Sassy Nails and Silly Diversions *say that 10 times fast* :)

Her franken was so awesome, and so close to Butter London's Black Knight, that I had to give it a shot, and so I did. I went to my local drugstore where I knew they had 2 bottles of Sally Hansen "Midnight in NY" and then grabbed 2 bottles of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear "Rockstar Pink" off the rack as well.

Went home and started mixin!!! I mixed in equal parts, and I ended up making 3 full sized bottles. I think I may give 1 away in a giveaway, does that sound cool?














Not a bad dupe, if I do say so myself :)  After seeing the flashes of pink and sparkles, I knew I had to add some pink accent nails to the mix...so WALLAH!














This is my new franken "Life 'O' The Party", with Orly "Purple Crush" (which is not purple, but still awesome).

 I topped the Orly off with Cover Girl "City Lights", so that it had some sparkle!














2 coats of  LotP, and 2 coats of PC and coverage was opaque and perfect! The manicure tried a tad bumpy, but top coat took care of that in a jiffy. No issues!



























And in true Franken Fashion, I named this bad boy after another Prince song *shocking*, "Life 'O' The Party" from his "Musicology" Album. WOO HOO!!!!! O(+>










































Look at that awesome sparkle, and trust me after you make this beauty, you will not need BL "Black Knight"..save your $$$ for another beauty and make this one IMMEDIATELY!!!
















I loved this manicure, definitely a favorite!

Keep It Sweet!

I made a franken for Black Knight earlier this week. I didn't use SH Rockstar Pink but it still came out pretty good.

Olivia said...

You sure picked an awesome name for it. You have a real gift for making franken polishes

p.s. Your next Prince-inspired lacquer could be called Mutiny. A light yellow franken and here's why: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nC1_7fzVChk&context=C34dc560ADOEgsToPDskKQZfzngaWM3GQ3LpcDtpNj !
