Scrambled Eggs

Posted in Glitter, Yellow with tags , , , , , on May 26, 2010 by Amanda Frankenpolish

Good morning!

Ok, be warned…today’s franken is definitely a weird one, in case you couldn’t tell by the name! My sister actually gave me the idea for this one. A good majority of my frankens end up going home with her whenever she comes over, and last time she visited she said I should make a “scrambled eggs” color…yellow with black glitter, like pepper! So I figured, why not? I like weird colors anyway!

I used Zoya Creamy, an unlabled orange shimmer I found, and fine black glitter from TKB Trading.

I filled an empty bottle with 3/4 of the orange shimmer, added in a teeny bit less and 1/4 of Creamy, and mixed in 2 teaspoons of fine black glitter.

Oh yes…this is weird, for sure. Maybe even hideous looking! I can honestly say I have never seen a polish like this…so at least it’s an original LOL. I actually kinda like it! But again, I like weird things.

Up close:

Thanks for stopping by! I have a bit more “normal” coming up next, so check back! 😀

Baby Chickadee

I received a request from reader Carrie, asking me if I could make a “baby chick” soft yellow. As you all know, I love a good challenge, so I got right to work.

I used Wet N Wild French White Creme and Zoya Creamy yellow creme. I was originally going to use the same white I used for Orange Julius (Sally Hansen Insta Di Whirlwind White), but I wanted this polish to be a bit softer & the WnW is not quite as stark white as the SH.

I added 3/4 of the white into an empty bottle, and topped it off with 1/4 of Zoya Creamy.

The result is a soft yellow non-chalky pastel. It does look like a little baby chick, and I hope this is what Carrie had in mind.

I have some more reader requests coming up, so check back soon.
