Franken: My Kind of Unicorn

Hi everyone, happy Thursday!

I've been bombarded with family issues for the past week, so I may be posting a bit more sporadically than usual. Due to these circumstances, I'm most likely going on a no/low-buy in the future -- I have to save up in case something bad happens!

But today we're talking about polish! I finally got around to making a franken that I've been thinking about for the past few months. For some reason, I always thought Clarins 230 aka "Unicorn Pee" didn't really remind me of Unicorns. I've always associated Unicorns with rainbows, and I found that Unicorn Pee missed part of the rainbow.

Long story short (most of it thinking on my part), I decided to mix Girly Bits Shift Happens, Street Magic, and Cosmic Ocean together in a bottle in order to create something that was more Unicorn-y in my opinion. I loved how it turned out!

The pictures below are two coats of my franken over China Glaze's Elephant Walk. These were all taken under various lighting - under a daylight lamp, bright indirect light and full sun. Sorry for my oddly shaped pinky finger... I got frustrated at the length of my nails while I was on vacation and I did a rough clip with nail clippers. I ended up cutting my pinky nail too short to even out using a nail file! Also ignore the printing on the side of a bottle - the only empty bottle I could find was one for a base coat.

Hope y'all have a great week and weekend!
