Frankens are fun for everyone!

I really love when people post pictures of their frankens. I've always been intrigued by the idea of making a totally unique polish, but the idea of figuring out what works and what doesn't stresses me out. Crazy? A little bit, but I'm working on it. So anyway, Alexandra (who does the awesome nail art posts here) posted pictures of a couple of frankens she did on MUA one day. And I fell soooo in love with this one I'm about to show you. I messaged Alexandra begging her to make me one haha. I sent her the ingredients to mix, thanked her roughly a thousand times, and now am the proud owner of two bottles of this gorgeous franken!

more sunlight (too pretty for just one picture)


The sunlight pictures are pretty accurate; it's a darker purple holo. This is one of my top five favorite polishes EVER! It's a mix of Milani - Hi-Res (the purple holo) and OPI - Lincoln Park At Midnight. So it's easy to make, which is excellent because I feel like I need a few more bottles... I wear this a lot! I think it would be fun to use all of the Milani holos to make frankens... I want to make a dark blue holo! Any suggestions on what to mix with it?
Have you made any frankens? What are you favorites?


  1. Gorgeous! I've made four frankens, and my favorite (by far) is something I made to be a dupe of Chanel Khaki Vert. I don't know if I succeeded or not, but I love the color!

  2. Wow, that is gorgeous!
    I love Frankens, always wanted to do one, little too messy for my liking.

  3. Ooooh dark blue sounds nice! That is a pretty color.
