First Friday Frankens ~ Sweet Thistle with Racing Stripes!

Hello Dahlings!
Today is da 1st Friday of da new month & y'all know that that means...right?
A new franken polish show & tell! (Woohoo & da crowd goes wild!!! LOL)
This is one of my earliest attempts at mixing a polish from near scratch
rather than mixing existing polishes to make a new color or finish.
So here we go!
 Da line up: Sweet Thistle Bar franken, Sinful Colors Lazy Girl nail art
& Stripe Rite silver nail art
 2 coats of STB. This dahling started out as the last of the top coat that matched my fav base coat. After 20 years it had picked up a pink tint & was too low to easily use for a top coat, plus it was not a fast dry tc.
So I decided to putz with it...
 I added Sweet Thistle craft grade pigment powder from LuminArte', lavender holographic bar & fine purple glitters from da craft store. I really need to get me some suspension fluid cuz having to shake da beejeebers out of my frankens is a pita.
I then used da nail art polishes to add racing stripes!
Followed by a coat of Seche Vite.
It's still rather textured, but doable. 
Lookee at da cute Hello Kitty Halloween candy tin Mr Inky brought me from Archie McPhee's ! He found himself in Wallingford by mistake during lunch on Friday & knew he better not come home empty handed. He also bought me one of their grab bags full of all kinds of wacky toys, including a St. Anne statue. She's da patron saint of lost stuff...anybody know where my coffee is?
Now for your Ciri spam:
 What? I'se sleepin.
 Why did you turn on da flash & wake me up?
Never mind. Zzzzzzz...
Thanks for stopping by!
