There is a surplus store near me that has a giant bin of Essie ridge-filling basecoat for $.25 each! I bought 10 of them just so I could use the bottles for frankening and I'm down to about 3 bottles left. So here is my fave so far:
I don't name my frankens nor do I write down what I'm adding as I go. I basically have an idea what I want and try to execute it. Sometimes it doesn't work and sometimes it does, like this one. I was going for a lavender with blue shimmer and this is 3 coats. It was a bit thinner than I'd like but it's worth it.
I first sponged a bit of Sinful Colors Verbena and then Pure Ice Busted over it.
Then I stamped it with Kleancolor Metallic Purple and BM208. I should have just left it alone :p
