First Friday Frankens!

Hello Dahlings!
My Dahling Polish Daughter, Swishie (she's having a non-UK Give-a-way right now!), recently lamented that she missed the Friday Frankens series I did last February. So I thought I'd bring it back in a slightly different way: First Friday Frankens! So from now until...whenever...I'll show a mani using one or more frankens I've made on da 1st Friday of da month. 
 Da line up: Reflex Violet Bling & Sassy Cotton Candy
 I applied 3 coats on each nail for full opacity.
I really have to stop going without undies...too breezy!
 Reflex Violet Bling started as L.A. Colors Sassy iridescent glitter in a clear base. I added Reflex Violet craft pigment powder to it. (This is the same powder I used HERE )
 Sassy Cotton Candy started as Wet N' Wild Kaleidoscope. I added Gumballs Sassy polish & Kleancolor Silver Star. Alas, da stars decided to stick to da side of da bottle 
& are a royal pita to fish out, but da color & sparklies are fun.
TA DA! I applied some Pueen nail art stickers that matched da polish colors
then I added a coat of Seche Vite to finish.
A word about these nail art stickers...I needed to use da flat end of a cuticle stick to get them off da backing plastic & slightly tore a couple cuz they really didn't want to be moved plus I highly recommend using a pva glue base coat when using them cuz they don't play well with acetone. They're on a plastic-y material that doesn't dissolve well but isn't impervious to da remover, so I had bits of sticky plastic to remove from my nails that were worse than glitter to deal with. I got them in a set of 10 packages on Amazon & they have a really nice assortment of designs that are different than many I've seen (I am so not into lil girly flowers, ya know?) at a reasonable Add-on price.  But I will have to remember to use da pva bc or I'll be saying bad words every time I have to remove them cuz I like da designs enuf to use them again.
Thanks for stopping by!
(My gaw has ended, da winners have been notified
& are listed on da gaw page. Thanks to all who entered!)
