Franken: Candy Applesque

Hi, it's been a while.

I made a franken for the Chinese New Year. Red for luck. And gold, which is not lucky per se, but it's gold so still good. These were all taken on a cloudy day.


The recipe is easy-peasy.

This franken was inspired by OPI Smitten With Mittens. I was originally going to use the two polishes you see on the right. NYC Chelsea and WnW The Gold & the Beautiful, but then I remembered I had an OPI with gold flecks. In theory, companies use the same glitter for the polishes that have that type of glitter. I'm sure there's a better way to explain that. I'm also sure that it would be foolish to assume this of OPI. *snort* And actually, the glitter in both polishes are very, very similar. In any case, I grabbed Rally Pretty Pink and because I was feeling like something brighter, WnW Everybody Loves Redmond. Redmond is a red-orange jelly. I mixed equal parts Redmond and RPP, then a drop of RPP at a time until the franken didn't lean orange at all. I love simple.

And I'm having some issues with blogger right now. I'm gonna update some stuff, see if that helps. See y'all later, hopefully, lol.
