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.


  1. Very pretty franken! Hope you've worked out the blogger issue soon so we can see more of you around here. :)
