ABOP Franken - Black-ish holo

*Oops! - edited to add missing composite photo...
APPLICATION: Smooth
COATS: 2
TOPCOAT?: Yes -1 coat of Beauty Secrets Fast Finish
RECIPE: Sally Hansen - Pink Rose Diamond (the darker one) + Black
COMMENTS: You know how I previously mentioned that I prefer scattered holographic glitter polish to holographic pigment polish? Well, I changed my mind after making this one - I like them both! Pink Rose Diamond is one of the few older Sally Hansen holographic polishes that showed up at Dollar Tree stores last year. I picked up a few, and realized I have two different versions of it. I used the darker one for this franken and added black (don't remember which one, sorry!) polish until I got a color I liked.

INDOORS:



OUTDOORS:






UP NEXT: I don't know, but I got OPI - DS Original (Thanks K!) in the mail and it put this holo to shame in just one coat - I swiped it right over the existing mani:

  10. Thanks for all the comments ladies! I actually thought I'd gone too dark with the franken when I made it, so it sat unused for months!
