Another Update

Posted in Other on October 15, 2010 by Amanda Frankenpolish

Hello, everyone!
Yes… I am still alive, and I am very sorry for neglecting my blog lately. I haven’t given up and do intend on returning shortly. The truth is, I’ve had some things going on in my personal life and unfortunately had to put my blog on hold for a little while. Hopefully I will have the issue with the pictures fixed soon, as well as some new stuff to show you. I sincerely thank all of you that have emailed me…sometimes a few kind words can really make a huge difference!

Giveaway! Some Barielle goodies!

Posted in Other with tags on April 24, 2010 by Amanda Frankenpolish

I have some goodies to giveaway today from Barielle! I’m very excited to share these with you, because these are some items I use myself, and really like them. One winner will receive one each of the Nail Rebuilding Protein, Nail Strengthening Cream, and Ultra Speed Dry Manicure Extender.

The mani extender is a godsend! It work great as a refresher, dries quickly, and leaves you nails super duper shiny. I use it under my SV occasionally too, because it helps with the shrinkage that SV is notorious for!
The contest will run for one week, and a random winner will be selected May 1st. International readers are welcome to join in as well. Good luck, everyone! 🙂

Pale peach has seems to be a popular color this spring, so I decided I may as well jump on the bandwagon and franken one up! I also tried to tie in the Twilight/vampire theme again for all you fans, so hopefully you like it!

I used a shimmery sheer white Revlon Colorstay (the bottom label was missing so I am unsure of the name, Wet ‘N Wild French White Cream, and Taylor Made pigment in High Lite.

I poured half each of the two whites into an empty bottle, then mixed in 1/2 teaspoon of High Lite pigment. This one required a LOT of shaking for the pigment to blend in, but it was worth the workout!

I was afraid this wouldn’t look good on me since I am so pale, but I really like it! It is smooth and “clean” looking.

Thanks for stopping by! I have a ton of cool things coming up, including the king (queen) of all greens, a giveaway, and something special on Friday! 😉

Wicked awesome mail day!

Hi everyone!
Thank you for all the kind comments and emails…it really means a lot to me that you actually miss my franken posts! 🙂
My nails are healing a bit, and I have made a bunch of new frankens that I will have up soon. But I absolutely HAD to show you all the goodies I got in the mail today!

First of all, let me just tell you that as a polish-oriented blogger, I’ve never received polishes from a company. I know many bloggers get promotional samples to try out, but I would never expect to receive promo polishes because of the nature of my blog…I’m just a crazy polish mixing fool! 😛 And to be honest, I’ve never been that good at describing colors/finishes/etc and don’t fancy myself much of an interesting writer. So you can imagine my surprise that I received a package in the mail from ManGlaze! Marc, the owner of the company, had sent me a message on Twitter asking for my address, and I figured it was probably for a mailing list or something.

But low and behold, look what came today.

Hot Mess, which is a sparkley silver matte…and Matte is Murder, a shimmery matte black. I adore the art on the bottles, and ManGlaze really has some amazing mattes!

But that’s not all. I received three “Franken Juggs”, too! Let the pictures do the talking…

Yes…those are empty franken bottles! Look at the labels!

I LOVE the artwork on these…I want the franken-lady as a life sized cutout! 😛
A huge thanks for ManGlaze for sending me these…I cannot wait to try them out.
Thanks for stopping by…you can expect some frankens real soon! ❤

Hi franken-friends!
I’ve been super busy lately, and had an unfortunate nail accident. Booo!
My nails are realllllllllly short right now, and it makes me uncomfortable just looking at them. So I am going to take a little blog vacation until they grow out a bit more. I’ve also got a ton of things to work on around my house, and now that the weather is warming up, I have some gardening to do!

I’ll be back very soon, I promise! ❤
