Gifted Fraanken - My Favorite Creation

APPLICATION: Smooth
COATS: 2
TOPCOAT?: Yes - 2 coats
SOURCE: A franken made by Chris at Lacquerware for Tips and Toes and sent to me as a gift.
COMMENTS: My eyes fell on this one yesterday morning, and I did a quick swatch on a false tip and fell in love. I knew I had to put it on after work, and that's exactly what I did. The photos really cannot capture how sparkly this is, so I made a video. I also switched to using Youtube for the video and the quality is much better than previous videos I've uploaded. Please ignore the music in the background, my hubby had an old Star Trek on TV :)

  11. hi, your nails are lovely. Do you put gel overlay on top? cos they look so smooth and mine are always bumpy after glitter xx

  12. @Brenda: No, it's not gel. I put two generous/thick coats of topcoat on in the photos you see. I did apply a third coat the next morning as it settled overnight. This means now, 4 days later, I still have this mani on with no noticeable tipwear (unexpected benefit).

  16. Its taken me a while to get around to catching up with some of my favorite blogs (yours, of course is on the list) and I love the youtube video you made of my franken. Its true - photos do not ever do it justice, but the video WITH the star trek music was very awesome. I'm glad you like it and if you ever want more - I will happily make it for you. :)
