My Third Franken: Peacock (and a FAIL pic)

Hi! Today I have my third franken. After Emerald City I wasn't sure if I could top it, and this kind of turned into a fail. I was using various blue hex and bar glitters (all by Recollections, purchased at Michaels) when I decided to spice it up and add a few pieces of purple. Within second, the purple literally took over and caused a mess. This is not what I envisioned. To make matters worse, I added some of the loose WnW holographic glitter that has shown up on Halloween displays and it took it over the top. I'm unhappy with this, too much holo and too much bar glitter. Oh well, you live and you learn.

Here's another fail pic of another franken. I did mostly magenta/pink glitter and wanted to add a few black, and it also became a mess. Damn bleeding glitters. And even though I'm using Confetti Tiara (which I read on MUA was good for frankens) my glitter is still sinking.
Help! Any frankeners have advice?



  1. While I'm not a big fan of glitter, I actually really like the base color of your top franken. Blurples are always cool :)

  2. I love the top one! If it were me, I would split it between a few bottles and add some clear polish to them to thin it out a bit if you wanted to.

  3. I love the top can always send it to me if you don't like it.

  4. Thanks ladies!
    @ Whirling Dervish - I think I may try exactly what you suggest. I'm not ready to give up on it just yet ;)

  5. Oh, I LOVE that top one! :] it's sooo pretty. It kind of reminds me of Dare to Wear glitter polishes
