Just guess what I've been frankening...

...hmm, a warm grey with creamy undertones.
Sounds familiar? Let's have a look.
 I think you already get the idea, yep? If you're not, let's go further.

Does that remind you something? :)

Yes! It's a Waking Up in Vegas franken! Go eat a candy if you guessed it right.
I've never seen the shade before I saw it on... well, I think you know who I'm talking about :)
And somehow it GOT me SO HARD, I couldn't resist but try how could it look on me. (DL don't ship outside USA and is pretty expensive, such a pity)
This is Orly Mirror Mirror + Avon Vanilla Shake mix. I'm not sure if I got the shade right, but it's how it looks to me. The swatches all round the nailnet differ from eachother like hell.
Actually, I've been searching for a look-a-like shade, really wanted Essie Body Language to be the lighter version to it, but it's just so pink. AND this franken looks a tad mauve, WTF. Maybe because MM is kinda bluebased or that sort of thing? I don't know. Still it looks real cooool (not in terms of tone) to me.
With my grandma's ring. I love it so much. Any huge rings fans out here?

Now onto the formula. It needed three coats too look pretty opaque, but at some angles it still doesn't look so. But I don't care. Really. I don't. Because just look how FAT at the tips it is! How would it look with a fourth coat? No, seriously, imagine. Gross.

Sorry for the dehydrated cuticles, remover killed them. Now they're all restored and pretty again!
Ah yes, don't buy orly's little bottles. They suck. I have less than 1/2 of the bottle and totally can't get any normal amount of polish out. Sec'n'dry topcoat in my case. And it smells ew-alicious. Any recommendations on safe and not stinking quick dry topcoats?

Thanks for reading and happy polishing!


  1. oooh, great franken! maybe a little more grey, and you're good to go! =D
    I recommend Sally Hansen Insta-Dri, ever tried that one out?

  2. Thank you! :D I think it's actually darker, too.
    Sec'n'dry was my first QDT, so I have nothing to compare it with myself!
    Hm...I like SH brush. Might try! Thanks for a recommendation! :)
