Twinsie Tuesday - Franken

Good morning, dear readers!

Today is Twinsie Tuesday again!!

This Twinsie Tuesday edition is all about frankens.  Man, do I ever love frankens!! :D

I would like to apologize in advance for the crappy photos... my cables for the light box are still not with me, so I took these photos at night in my bedroom and kitchen.  :S

This franken was made by my sister, and is called Luster.  I asked her to make me a polish based on the world Luster in the Unicorn Chronicles from Bruce Coville.  I absolutely love those novels, and grew up with the first book in that series.  My wonderful ex bought me the whole set a couple years ago for my birthday, and it makes me so happy!  My sister captured the world perfectly with this polish!!   Lots of silver and purple in this... if only I could have taken better photos!

I am definitely going to have to re-swatch this when I have my light box up and running!  This looks so much more beautiful in real life!

Now to take sparkle to a whole different level...

WHEE!!! :D  This was super fun to do!!  I used about 4 more different frankens for the sparkle and glitter, then added a ton of rhinestones to the tips.  XD
