Franken: I Am Not Yours

Today I have another Autism Awareness Month blue for you, and this time it's a franken - a choir franken, in fact. I started out wanting to make a jelly blue with silver glitter, and when I got done it reminded me of a line in a song we sing in choir called "I Am Not Yours" (the lyrics are a poem by Sara Teasdale), so that's what I named the polish. In case you're curious, the line is "Oh plunge me deep in love, put out my senses, leave me deaf and blind." Anyway, here it is at three coats with Seche Vite (which gave me a bit of shrinkage, as you can see):

outdoors, sunlight
indoors, artificial light 
outdoors, shade

I didn't take a bottle shot because the bottle I used (an old Seche Rebuild bottle) was made of foggy glass, and unfortunately you can't see the holographic bits, but I hope you get a good idea of what this polish is like nonetheless. For some reason I didn't write down the polishes I used when I made this like I usually do, but my best guess and remembrance is that I used Icing Electric Feeling, Wet n Wild Kaleidoscope, China Glaze Fairy Dust, Wet n Wild White Creme, and Wet n Wild Clear. I'm reasonably happy with this franken, though I feel like it lacks something at times...we'll see.

  5. I would love to see this without the glitter. I love glitter, but a plain jelly in this shade of blue would be so delicious.

  7. Thanks! The glitter and opacity are a little different, but the two are similar.
