My First Franken

Hi dear readers :)

I finally decided to try some frankening. It all started with Kittie's blog, More Nail Polish, and especially this post.
I didn't wait a lot and bought the Star Bite powders from TKB to create the same top coats. And as I'm not a logical person, my first mix wasn't made of these :D

I wanted something pink but not too bright, and I especially wanted to include some black glitters.
I mixed some black, pink and red together, and added pink and black glitters. I even wrote the quantities I've used, so if you're interested, you'll find my recipe at the end of this post.
But let's see the pics first :)

For a first try, I can say I'm happy of how it turned. I like that dark raspberry jelly a lot, and also like how the glitter add a little something to it !
I had this opaque result with two coats, the bigger glitter made it a bit gritty but a coat of Seche Vite made it smooth.

The bad point, it didn't stay very well on my nails, it started to chip the second day of wear, the kind of big chips you can't hide in any way :(
I don't know where it comes from, I'm such a novice in mixing nail polish ! Maybe it's the quality of the polish I used...
Anyway, I still like it and will try frankening again :)

Do you like it ?

Here's my recipe ... I used a syringe this time, so the quantities are precise lol ...
1.5ml red polish (NYC Chelsea Cherry) - 1.5ml pink jelly polish (Essence Sweet as Candy) - five drops of black polish (NYC City Blackout) - 0.1gr black glitter (unknown brand, I bought it in a Spanish dollar store) - 0.3gr fushia thin glitter (Isis from NaildeRoyale)

Tell me what you think of it :)
