Give Me Gallifrey

It's been four days. Oh my. I'm sorry. *blinks* Part of the reason is that I've been wearing my most recent franken that whole time and the sun didn't come out until today and I really, really wanted sunlit pictures of this one. I named it Give Me Gallifrey because 1) it looks kinda like space and 2) I love Doctor Who. I think this might be my franken with the most number of polishes in it: I used Ulta Devious, random clear polish, Love My Nails Angel Baby, Sinful Colors Frenzy, Sally Hansen Diamonds, and Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure. This was three coats. (I changed the size of my pictures for this post - what do you think? Do you like them bigger or do you want me to change it back?)

I really, really, really love this polish. It's by far my favorite franken that I've made, and I love all the different kinds of glitter and flakies in it. I'm also really happy with the application and wear - since it's made up of a bunch of different brands' formulas, I thought it might be a pain to apply and wear off quickly, but it's done well. I only have a bit of tipwear after four days, and usually by this point my polish is really coming off. 

And here are some new polish blogs I've found recently:
The Polished Perfectionist
Frankenstyna
Kiss My Acetone
I Wish I Were Kali
Bad Luck Baby

I love the name "Kiss My Acetone," don't you? Until next time (hopefully much sooner than four days)!

  1. Thank you so, so much! Nfu Oh 51 is a HUGE lemming of mine, so that is
    really high praise.

  2. Thanks so much! I think I'm just going to use the bigger pictures for
    polishes that I feel really benefit from it.

  4. This is so pretty! I like the bigger pictures, especially for polishes with glitter, flakies, shimmer, etc so it's easier to see them :) It looks so great on you

  7. Thanks! I keep changing my mind about the picture size...I may do it bigger
    for some (probably more detailed) polishes and smaller for others. Who
    knows!

  9. Thank you! I'm really happy with my nail length right now...the only bad
    thing is when I have to play piano, the clicking sound drives me a bit nuts.

  10. Pretty franken!

    I like smaller, clickable pictures better (bigger ones I feel like I'm too close and don't get a sense of how the polish looks on your hands), but of course it's your blog so do what you like!

  17. Thank you! Now that you said that, I realized that those are all the things
    I like, too...I guess that's why I'm so happy with this one! Thanks for the
    input on the pictures, as well. I think I'll probably continue with the
    larger size.

  19. Thank you! I have worn this more than I've worn any polish in some time. And
    I was sooo happy to see the sun! Here's hoping for some sunshine where you
    are, too.
