Beauty Check - Part 6 and a DIY

Good morning girls. (Wow, I just sound like a strict, old princi of some 'girls only' school..uhmm I belonged to one :P :P ). Anyway, back to the series, today's topic is FRANKEN POLISHES and no, this is nowhere related to Frankenstein

Frankening is the process of mixing different polishes, pigments, glitter, etc to create a unique nail polish, or "franken polish". You can create jellies, glitters, and even mattes frankening. (Yes I am back on another nail topic...the series should be named Nail Check now :P)

So on a whim, I wanted to create a duochrome franken polish.The 'duochrome' part failed but I thought of sharing my naive experience and tutorial with you guys anyways.

First let's see, what you would need,
A small cap from any old bottle, a good applicator brush all cleaned up, 2-3 pigments (I used eyeshadow pigments that I might never use on my eyes) of your choice of colors, a new and clean toothpick :P

Let's get started with the experiment then. I used only the blue and green eyeshadows thinking of getting the duochrome effect. First, I added some blue pigment into the cap. Measurement is according to your need. I didn't do any specific measurement.

Then I added the green pigment in the cap and stirred both pigments with the toothpick to mix them.

Then add some clear basecoat/topcoat nailpolish.

And stir it well to mix using the toothpick.
I wasn't satisfied with the runny consistency and the green color so I added a bit more of the blue pigment and tada, I got my own franken polish ready but got disheartened when I didn't see the duochrome effect.

Anyways, it was my first experiment and I am glad that it didn't fail completely and turned out to be a nice aqua green/blue polish.

Here it is on my nails. 

These B.B.B polishes gives a matte finish to nails, dries up superfast, doesn't chip easily, and you can add an optional topcoat to give a bit of glossy look and to order this you can contact me on my toll free number 1234567890 (kidding :P).  Overall I really liked this but removing them takes a little patience.

Have you ever tried something like this? Do share with me :-*
