My first Franken: Frank-Lynn

Hello guys! Today's post as you probably figured out by the title is about my first franken. Some of you may have already seen the swatches on my facebook page but this post will show you how it looks in a full blown mani! I decided to name it Frank-Lynn because it is a clash with franken and the creator of Lynnderella because her work is one of the first I've seen in the world of Indies.

Frank-Lynn is a light blue jelly-like polish that is PACKED with glitter. It wore very well with no base coat or top coat (shame on me, I  know) and had a good amount of colour after 2 coats.

Here's a close up of what the polish looks like. I really enjoyed making this franken and after this one I started considering if I should do custom made polishes for people since it got such a positive response. What do you guys think? Tell me how you feel about it and have a wonderful day :)

OPI: Just Spotted the Lizard

"Spiderman, Spiderman, does whatever a spider can!" Hahaha ! Today I have swatches for you guys of Just Spotted the Lizard from OPI's new Spiderman collection.
This colour is said to be a dupe of Chanel's Peridot (which sadly I do not own), but from what I've seen they are the exact same. This is a duo-chrome that flashes between yellow and green, and might I say this is truly GORGEOUS.

Here's what it looks like indoors:

Now where the magic happens, to the sunlight!:

I tried to capture the colour from all angles so you guys could see the difference. As you can see it goes from yellow, to yellow-green, to a metallic looking green.

I think this is one of my favorite OPI's as of now and it is versatile for any skin tone and time of the year. If you missed out on Peridot, I recommend getting this as it is not as costly and you get the same beautiful colour. Thanks for reading!

China Glaze Glitter Crackle

This is my first blog post people!!! Today I'm here to show you these beauties known as the China Glaze crackle glitters. I won these from a giveaway on their Facebook page and wanted to share them 
with you. :)

(From left to right): A light green glitter with a hint of yellow, light purple glitter, fuchsia/purple glitter, ocean blue glitter.
The names of these polishes from left to right are:
L-R: Jade-d, Luminous Lavender, Glam-More, Gleam Me Up

I was hoping that these colours looked as good on the nails as they did in the bottles so I put them to the test. I swatched these four crackle glitters over black, white, and 4 random colours I chose, here's what they looked like in the same order listed.
In my opinion, Glam-More and Gleam Me Up crackled the best. The colours looked just as bright and beautiful on the nail as they did in the bottles and cracked to my liking. My least favourite of the bunch is Luminous Lavender. It didn't crack very well and the colour is very faint over light colours.

Hope you enjoyed my very first review/ blogpost and I hope to be doing many many more! Like me on and follow this blog . Thank you and have an amazing day :D
