Cloudy weather and franken fun!

So all week I've been dying to show you a franken I made on Monday evening. But I couldn't because the weather here has been the suck! This was the view outside my door up until this morning:

Pretty sucky, huh? Don't get me wrong, I love the rain and cold weather. But it's not so great for taking pictures of your nails. So thankfully today the sun finally came out in the afternoon, giving me enough light and time to show you guys what I cooked up :)

I'm not really in love with it like I was with the idea of it. I think I'll end up changing it. But I still like it :D Let's just say I thought it would come out a lot differently than it did! And I think I know how to make it come out how I had imagined. Of course that would require buying another polish. But I think it'll be worth it in the end.

Without further ado, here is my newest mix, Rain Clouds (yeah, cheesy name, but it's mine!)! :D

Indoors without flash

Out in direct sunlight

In all photos and the video I have 3 coats of the franken on my index and ring fingers and on my middle finger and pinky is 2 coats of the franken over 1 thick coat of black. I used OPI's Black Onyx, American Apparel's Factory Grey and China Glaze's Fairy Dust to make this. I think to get the result I want I'm going to have to add a holo silver nail polish to the mix like Milani's HD. But that's going on the backburner until next month.

Also, I wanted to mention that I'm probably going to start uploading videos to youtube for the simple fact that flickr has a 2 video per month limit and that's just not gonna fly. So I created a youtube channel in case you guys are interested. The only downside I can see to this is that the videos appear a lot clearer on flickr than they do on youtube. So if I ever think a video looks too crappy to post here from youtube, I'll probably upload it to flickr as well to show it better. Whoo, that was a lot, huh? Anyhow, sorry if that was TMI. Just wanted to let you guys know what's going on :D

Have a great weekend and hope the weather is nice for you guys!


  1. Love it! Love it! Love it!

    Have you checked into for your videos? I've used Photobucket for pictures and graphic signatures for a few years. I hardly ever upload a video but haven't had any problems with the ones I have.

  2. Thank you so much, I'm glad you guys like it! :D

    And Marsha, I do have photobucket, but for some reason when uploading videos, it crashes :( I've tried and I have 2 that took a really long time to upload. But I guess it just doesn't agree with my pc. But thank you for the suggestion! :D You ladies have a great weekend!

  3. ABOP - Thank you for visiting, I'm glad you like the franken! :D
