Welcome Back, Frankens!

Hello Dahlings!
 
Just a quickie today cuz my MIL arrived last night & German brunch is nigh! So I've been on a franken fit of late & was chatting with @SkeeterStyle23 on Twitter da other day & she commented that da After School franken I showed on Friday had a fun name. The plum colored polish I used for color was part of a collection with school themed names. Skeeter made a joke about my making a Welcome Back, Kotter polish & my inky lil brain cell started percolating...
 
This is 5 of da 10 polishes I frankened Friday night. Da line up: Hotsie Totsie, Washington 'Hi There!', After School Detention (I renamed it.), Welcome Back, Kotter & Kotter 'Did I ever tell u about...'. All of these dahlings started with L.A. Colors Live & various polishes I wanted a foil version of in my collection.
 
Here's a bit of a close up.
 
I was in such a hurry to get these done I didn't take base color pics. Hubs was headed for da airport & I wanted to be done before they got back. I failed on that but my nails turned out KEWL! I used da 2 colors on either side of each finger to do gradients using bits of sponge cut to 1/4" x 5/8", one for each combo.
 
Only a few days left to enter my Birthday Give-a-way!
Thanks for stopping by!

    1. Thanks! So many indie makers have used so many of da good shows for names that I figured if I picked one from before most of them were born I could have something different. lol
