Must Have Halloween Frankens continued

So another one of Amber's fabulous Halloween Frankens has donned my nails recently.

Fairy Frightening is very dimensional. It's a deep purple base with flashes of blue shimmer and 2 sizes of fuchsia colored glitter. It almost looks like Bad Romance had a baby with something like Illamasqua Boo! haha. You wouldn't guess it from the first coat, but it's definitely pigmented enough to be opaque in 2 coats. Usually large glitter is hard to work with. This one isn't very frustrating. It's not like you can just throw it on but it's really not that bad. Of course the large glitter tends to give the finish a slightly lumpy surface. But I love Gelous Basecoat. You put it over top of any glitter and it smooths everything out. Then your topcoat can give it some shine. Two coats of your regular topcoat might work well enough though if you don't have Gelous.

So here's a few pictures. All are Seche Restore for a basecoat, 2 coats of Fairy Frightening, 1 coat of Gelous and 1 coat of Out the Door.

Flash (check out that blue!):

You can see what I mean about the dimension! Lots of fun little elements making this just pop. I was complimented several time the day I wore this to work. 

Again, this lovely polish was created by Amber and her husband over at My Nail Graffiti. This and the other 3 wonderful creations in this collection are available for sale. At least until her glitter supply runs out, so don't miss out!
