Green Olive Gold? Franken

Whoops, editing to include the correct recipe. Maybe I shouldn't post under the influence of cold medicine...

Another franken. This one was incredibly hard to take accurate pictures of. It's an olive-green that flashes gold but also looks grassy green at certain angles. This is two parts OPI Simply Smashing, one part OPI Rally Pretty Pink, and one part Sinful Colors Black on Black (highly pigmented black creme). All under the lamp.

I turned on the vivid option on my camera to capture the golden flash. Pardon the weirdly tinted skin.



I liked this franken but I don't consider it a complete success. My objective was to make Simply Smashing into something that only needed two coats. This still took three.
