BOOYA!

I haven't been in the mood to swatch lately so that makes for slim pickin's when it comes to posting. Sorry I keep leavin ya'll hangin. I'm sure I'll get over it and start swatching my brains out and posting up a storm at some point. Until then, thanks for checking my blog to those of you that do.

Anyway, I have never really been into frankening mostly because I love my polishes and I don't want to mess them up, also because I would rather just buy something than make it myself.  But the polish I have been craving isn't available freakin ANYWHERE it seems.  I am talkin' bout a true green holo my dear ladies.  Not a yellowy green, not a teal like China Glaze DV8, a TRUE GREEN.  Also, none of this holo glitter or holo particle business.  I wanted a real holo not some crappy blue green jelly with holo glitter in it. 

So, I just sacrificed my first polish to make a franken.  It's not as dark as I would like but it IS the color China Glaze forgot when they made the OMG collection, In my opinion,  which is exactly what my goal was.  So I present to you my sort of, technically, first franken polish-
I call it OMFG.  I think that captures all aspects of this franken perfectly.  This was 2 coats in outdoor lighting.  So?  What do you guys think?  Did I done good? 

Love, MM

P.S.- The recepe for this is roughly 1/2 China Glaze OMG and 1/2 Nfu-oh 569 with a few drops of black.

  8. You've done great! I've recently started frankening with some super cheap Dollar Tree stuff and some of my mega old polishes. Hit or miss, but I really enjoy it.

  13. I think your franken is amazing and it certainly doesn't look like a dupe for Reclaim. Sure, there are similarities, but Reclaim is more blue-based. Yours is lovely :)

  14. This came out amazing, although I would give my left pinkie nail for a bottle of CG OMG ;-)
    I agree with Lori about Reclaim-it is definitely more blue/teal than your pretty green. OMFG indeed!
