Franken rescue with Mia Secret Tint - Blue

I have a lot of nail polishes I made by mixing glitter with a sparkly base polish. Most of them I haven't worn yet. This one was a disappointment because the glitter was a pretty lavender color. The color came off, but I was able  to salvage  it by adding some Mia Secret tint - Blue.
**  Tengo un montón de esmaltes de uñas que hice por el brillo de mezcla con un esmalte brillante base. La mayoría de ellos no he usado todavía. Esta fue una decepción, porque el brillo fue un bonito color lavanda. El color se desprendió, pero fue capaz de salvarlo mediante la adición de un tinte Secreto Mia - Azul.

This looks nothing like it did when I made it about a year ago - then it was a pretty lavender color.
** Esto se ve nada como lo hizo cuando lo hice hace un año - entonces era un bonito color lavanda.

Here it is with two thick layers of topcoat. It's pretty, but not what I wanted.
**  Aquí está con dos gruesas capas de acabado. Es bonito, pero no es lo que yo quería.

I decided to make it blue.
**  Decidí hacer lo azul.

With topcoat:
** Con capa final:

I love using the tints to add color because they are clear. If I had used a creme nail polish, it would have clouded my mixture a little.
** Me encanta usar los tintes para dar color, ya que son claras. Si yo había usado una crema esmalte de uñas, se han nublado mi mezcla un poco.

If you'd like to try the Mia Secret Tints, I still have them available - check out my blog sale

  1. Both are beautiful. From my screen the lighter one looks a light beige/pink and it looks like Revlon's Starry Pink :)

  2. I like them both too, very unique! =))

  3. Very lovely, too bad it bled :-/ the new is superb also!

  4. I like them both, maybe I like the blue one a little bit more! :-)

  6. The blue one is just amazing *-*

  7. Am I the only one who's never thought that one could mix two different bottles of nail polish??!!
    Very cool idea
