AKA Franken: Inception

I am such a bum! Seriously, I hate not posting every day and I feel crummy leaving you hanging for so long without a genuine post. It's the end of the semester for my university career, the last one EVER before I earn my degree. WOW. It's pretty crazy to say that. I have worked a looong time to earn this Bachelor's degree and I am gonna cherish it :)

This is a little baby franken I made, to wear on my nubby nubbins. I can't stand it when my nails are different lengths, so when one breaks or tears, I have to cut them all down :/ I made this out of the Revlon paradoxal dupe, called Perplex. I have wanted a holo color like this forever, so I decided to make my own. I added some of China Glaze's OMG, but not wanting to run out haha I also put in some OPI DS Shimmer. I tried to add flakies, which would make this even more epic, from CND's Sugar Sparkle, but they all fell to the bottom :P Oh well, this is my creation; I named it Inception! (p.s. if you haven't seen that movie, you need to seriously RUN and get it! It's in my top 5 of all time!)
 
Will be back to posting regularly soon soon :)

*P.S.  You may notice that I have discontinued using "Intense Debate" as my commenting system.  It just has too many bugs and makes my site run slower.  Unfortunately, this has made me lose ALL of my old comments from all of my cherished readers :(  This makes me epically sad and believe me, I wrote a very strongly-worded email to the ID people.  Hopefully they will find a way to fix this soon.  I am planning on writing back on the previous posts, answering questions, etc. but they will be on the blogger system.  I apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

  1. You are so brave using OMG to franken with! I would seriously waste it trying to franken anything wearable.
    It's a gorgeous color, makes you look at it and think is it tapue or is it purple? Is it a glitter or a holo? Am I dreaming or am I in real life?!
    (I think he was still dreaming)

  11. Sorry about the comments!

    When I saw this post on my blog updates and I instantly thought that looks like Perplex!

  14. Not only is that one of my favorite movies (what happens to that top...eh??)of all time too, but I love what you did to Perplex. Too bad about the flakies. I wonder if that's not why we don't see more of them; they don't float easily.

  15. Lalalala LOVE this. I actually have a holo franken I'm sending you to thank youuuuuuuuuuuuu for the super duper awesome package you sent me! So be prepared for a pkg of frankens :)

  16. I love your franken! Is this one of the little bitty Wet n Wild bottles? I used a couple bottles of Prancer to try to make a Deborah Lippmann Ruby Red Slippers dupe, so I'm going to use both of them for future frankening attempts. :)

    Congratulations on getting your bachelors, by the way! Job well done! :)
