My Failed Franken Nail Polish-Iced Root Beer

*Post originally written by Olivia J on The Unknown Beauty Blog. If you see this post elsewhere, it has been stolen!**

I knew I shouldn't have frankened during my blog hiatus.  I wasn't up to par in thinking or health and the result is a color that really is bland.  It feels as though I didn't put much thought my energy into this polish because I knew from the beginning it would be a dud.  Again, I used ManGlaze Franken Juggs and I wished I didn't have to waste this one.

When I franken a polish I really need to be inspired and not medicated.  I really need to see the colors and not be blinded by thoughts and images alone.  This one is a pure dud because for two reasons: my fault and not concentrating on the creation and the polishes I used were not great either.

I won't mention the polishes I used because they are good when used on their own.  However, I have noticed after frankening many colors; the quality or the mixture of the polish does matter.  The end result can end up either fantastic like Tom Sawyer or just murky, dull, and flat like this one.

I called this one Iced Root Beer because that is what I was drinking when I thought of the swatch.  The color is a warm slightly red brown with shimmer and silver sparkle (as the ice).  The sparkle never distributed itself evenly due to the mixture of the polish I added.  I had to use the polish as a topcoat as you see in the pictures for the actual end result I was wanting.  The shimmer of the polish fell flat because the brand I used is not really the greatest to franken with another brand.

All in all a disappointing result for me and I think I will stick to music to inspire my frankening (Is this a word?).
