For Elmor

Hello, all!

Today I have a color that was a request by a friend of mine. She wanted something along the lines of China Glaze For Audrey, but with a squishy, jelly finish like RBL Bikini Bottom. This one was actually super easy to make, and I nailed it on my first try. My friend Elma was quite pleased with it as well, so I named it after her (Elmor is a silly nickname I have for her).

I used Wet ‘N Wild French White Creme, New York Summer Hot Sky Blue, Tropical Manicure #13, and NYC Clear.

I filled an empty bottle half full of clear, added in just a tad less of 1/4 each of Hot Sky Blue & TM #13, then added in about 5 drops of white.

I loved the color so much, and am glad I made an extra bottle for myself to show off on here! I used 3 thickish coats, because we all know how I feel about VNL’s. This one is very versatile, so you can wear it as sheer or as opaque as you want!

Thanks for stopping by! More coming up soon :-)

  12. This is one of my favorites of all your frankens to date! I’ve never heard of/seen the brand Tropical Manicure in real life before, though – would you be able to suggest any dupes for that color/ways that those of us who’d like to replicate the franken but can’t get that color might be able to do it? Thanks!!

  15. Wow, this one turned out really beautiful. Mine are always so dull. Maybe I should stick to a minimum amount of polishes.
