ABOP Glitter Franken - Carnelian

APPLICATION: Okay for a glitter - just had to try extra hard not to get it on my skin as I polished because I wouldn't be able to do regular cleanup.
TOPCOAT?: Yes - two coats.
SOURCE: ABOP Franken (using Martha Stewart microglitter in Carnelian from Michael's)
COMMENTS: For some reason my photos of this always make it look super bumpy, but I don't have a chance to take them in full sunlight so these will have to do. This was nice and sparkly, but I don't like it as much as this previous glitter franken.

UP NEXT: OPI - On The Same Paige


  1. Love the color...great franken! :)

  2. Yeah, it looks quite bumpy unfortunately but I like the orange color.

  3. Very pretty! I like red/orange glitters a lot.

  4. how the heck do you keep your glitter from not going to the bottom...!

  5. @Pretty:

    To keep the glitter suspended, I start out with a polish that already has bits suspended in it - I showed which polish I used as my base in the following post on my blog:

    I don't know if you can find these discontinued wet n wild polishes in particular, but I know Wet n Wild has a widely available suspended glitter polish that is good as a base. I think it's called Hallucinate. Other brands have something similar, so just pick one you like to start with. Good luck, and have fun frankening!
