Here is two coats of my unnamed franken!
I have been inspired by two blogs, Another Bottle Of Polish and Karinea0a! So I decided to make my own franken! If you are looking for a simple way to make your own polishes for fun, this is the perfect approach! You have the supplies already. So its free! Its been at least six months since I did this! It was fun! You just throw a bunch of stuff in a bottle and see how it turns out! Of course this polish wasn't my first attempt! I made about three or four, and this was the best out of those hahaha. I have to admit this was a little harder for me as opposed to using raw materials. Maybe that is because I am familiar with how my pigments and glitters work with suspension base. Therefore, I have a good idea on the ratio of materials.
I started with a touch of Kleancolor White because I love white "jelly" polishes packed with glitter. (A little white goes a LONG way). If you don't have empty polish bottles, try emptying an old bottle and cleaning it out with acetone or start saving your empty bottles of top and base coat.
I added a little bit of each of the following: China Glaze Glam, Orly Spazmatic, Icing Lemme See Your Peacock, and Sinful Colors Call You Later. I topped it off with clear suspension base. If I didn't have suspension base, I would probably just add more glitter polish or try my luck with adding some clear top coat (Depending on how much of the glitter polishes you added, the glitters would probably sink to the bottom. Nothing a little shaking will not fix). You could try finding a glitter polish that doesn't have a lot of glitter in it such as Kleancolor Chunky Silver or Wet N Wild Hallucinate. That way you can use most of that as a suspension base without the glitter overpowering your polish.
I then stamped it using Konad Blue, Konad Green, and Bundle Monster Stamping Plate BM- 323.
