Aztec Gold

Posted in Black, Gold with tags , , , , , on June 1, 2009 by Amanda Frankenpolish

I’ve been busy catching up on reader requests, and I just wanted to take a moment to thank all of you that have written in with ideas. My next set of frankens was inspired by a request I received from Sara, who asked if I could make some darker, “almost black” colors with shimmer. I had a lot of fun making these, and am quite pleased with how they turned out!

For today’s franken, “Aztec Gold”, I used Sally Hansen New Lengths in Tapestry…a shimmery gold color, and Wet ‘N Wild black creme.


I filled an empty bottle with 3/4 of Tapestry, and 1/4 black creme. I shook this well, and let it sit for a while before shaking again. Mixing with a rich black such as the Wet N Wild black creme usually take a little extra shaking, but it’s well worth it!


I am head over heels in love with this color! It is so unique and glowy!


Now you know I have more of these dark colors up my sleeve…so check back soon!
