Ion

Good morning!

Today I have the final installment of my Overall Minerals pigment frankens. These have been so fun to make, and I saved my favorite for last!

Ion was the color I was most excited to play with. I actually had another pigment from a different brand that was very similar in color, but sadly turned into a messy lava-lamp like monstrosity when I tried to add it into a polish base. Ion worked beautifully when I tried it in the same base, A Perfect 10 brand color called The One, which is a sheer with blue shimmer. Also, I discovered a few days later that the Pure Ice color called Oh Baby will achieve the same result. I used about one full tablespoon of Ion pigment in this.

Can you see why this is my favorite?

The polish base was a bit thin, so I did three coats of this to make sure it was completely opaque. The color just pops out at you and screams for attention!

A gigantic thank you once again to Kim from Overall Beauty for sending me these pretty pigments to play with! ❤

Elf Toes

Posted in Pink with tags , , , , , , on June 28, 2010 by Amanda Frankenpolish

Good morning!

I have the first of my week-long frankens made with my cool new pigments from Overall Beauty Minerals! The names were so cute on the pigments, that I decided to leave them, rather than come up with new ones.

For “Elf Toes”, I mixed the pigment with two different pink Revlon Colorstay colors- Endless Pink and Extremely Pink. I used approx. one teaspoon of pigment.

This looked incredible in the bottle, but I wasn’t sure the color would suit my skin tone…

…I was proven wrong! I really love the golden sheen in this. And who doesn’t feel pretty in pink? You all know I’m not a huge pink lover, but the girlie-girl inside me was jumping for joy when I wore this. Plus, it’s named “Elf Toes”. That will make just about anyone crack a smile!

Thanks for stopping by! I will have more for you tomorrow, so please check back!
