Marilyn & Me and a Franken



Catrice - Marilyn & Me is a gorgeous red with small glitter in it. You only
need a couple of coats to make it opaque. It is really easy to apply. I wanted
to spice it up a little bit with a FrankenLet's see what I came up with.



What do you think? Do you want to know how I did it?

 Here's how:


 I started out with Catrice - Marilyn & Me as the base color. Then
applied large and medium gold hex glitters randomly on the nails.


 Then it was time for my Franken (no name). It is a red jelly base
with medium holo hex glitter in it, medium square silver glitter,
black micro and small hex glitter, and silver and gold micro glitter.


To smooth it out I applied at least 2 coats of Seche Vite.

What do you think of my manicure?
Do you have any name suggestions for my franken?

  2. This is so gorgeous! What a great idea to use loose glitter in a jelly sandwich. The franken is beautiful as well!

  4. Really pretty! I'd call it "platelet", as it reminds me of blood (not n a gory way).
