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.

how the heck do you keep your glitter from not going to the bottom...!ReplyDelete
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: http://anotherbottleofpolish.blogspot.com/2010/06/frankenglitteration.html
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!
