Juggle-not The Clown

Good morning, all!

Today’s franken was inspired by my silly and lovable sister during a slightly tipsy game of Scattergories. The name made me laugh a lot and I knew I needed to incorporate it into a polish.

I used LA Colors Red Glitter, Sally Hansen Glossy, and Jade Meteorite Showers.

I filled an empty bottle with 2/3 Meteorite Showers, slightly less than 1/3 of Red Glitter, and 5 drops of Glossy.

Definitely fun looking!

The multi color glitter really stands out nice against the reddish pink base, and I couldn’t help but smile every time I looked down at my nails.

Up close to show the glittah:

Thanks for stopping by! 🙂

Lost Treasure of Atlantis

Happy Memorial weekend! On this lovely Saturday, I have a pretty blue glitter for you.

For this one, I used Color Club Sultry Diva gold glitter, Jade Twilight Blue, and Maybelline Bolt of Blue.

I mixed 1/3 of each glitter into and empty bottle, added ballz and shook well.

I will admit, I was kind of on the fence about this color. I wasn’t sure I liked it, but I gave it a try anyway.

It definitely looks better on than in the bottle! I wasn’t sure how the blue and gold glitters would look together, but it’s definitely unique and pretty. I had to settle on indoor pictures, since it decided to rain! Here it is close up…

I have one more super glitter for you, then we will move on to some more reader requests!

Bad Medicine

As promised…I have another mega glitter for you today!

For this one, I used Color Club Sex Symbol silver glitter, Jade Asteroid Caress, and Martha Stewart fine glitter in Garnet.

I filled an empty bottle half full with Sex Symbol, then added 1/3 of Asteroid Caress. I then added in 2 tablespoons of Garnet glitter, and mixed it well.

I was a tad let down because this one doesn’t look very impressive in the bottle. On my nails, however, it really dazzles!

There wasn’t much sun today, but here is a close up in overcast natural light…

Now, I had a lot of trouble thinking of a name for this one. After staring at the picture for days, the song “Bad Medicine” by Bon Jovi (yes…go ahead and laugh…I was totally born in the 80’s!) popped into my head. I have no idea why, but it seemed like a fitting name.

I have more glitter coming up, so check back!
