Abop Franken: Diamond Cosmetics (www.diamondcosmetics.com), Cosmetic Arts (Ross)

When I showed this other franken a while ago, I couldn't remember how I made it. I think I remember now though (black + Orly Green With Envy), because I have a similar one today. The recipe is really easy, and the photo shows exactly what I used. I started with  Cosmetic Arts - Wild Child?? (not sure that is the name) and added Diamond Cosmetics - I'm Raven About You - a few drops at a time till I got a color I liked. I've always wanted to take a set of neon colors and modify them with black.

** Cuando le mostré este otro franken hace un tiempo, no podía recordar cómo lo hizo. Creo recordar ahora, sin embargo (negro + Orly - Green with Envy), porque tengo uno parecido en la actualidad. La receta es muy fácil, y la foto muestra exactamente lo que yo hacía. Comencé con Cosmetic Arts - Wild Child?? (no estoy segura de que es el nombre) y Diamond Cosmetics - I'm Raven About You - unas gotas a la vez hasta que tiene un color que me gustaba. Siempre he querido tomar un grupo de colores neón y modificarlas con negro.
