Franken: Leaving Pine Valley

This polish has a forest green base with light green, silver, and pink shimmer.

Two coats, Revlon topcoat.

With flash

My original franken was called Pine Valley, and it looked like this (two coats, Seche Vite topcoat):

The recipe for the original was three parts Icing Envy and one part Color Club Naughtycal Navy. I made this years ago and only wore it once or twice. I was going through my stash today, saw it sitting there, and decided to do something with it.

I added about 20 drops of Wet 'N Wild Hallucinate, which is has pink, silver, and light green glitter in a clear base. Next I added about 10 drops of Maybelline Go Go Green, 10 drops of Zoya Bailey, 5 drops of Sinful Colors Mint Apple, and 5 drops of China Glaze Naked. I shook it all up and got a dusty forest green with subtle shimmer.

The formula was pretty darn good, I must say lol. It dried to a sheen rather than a shine, and it was a tad on the grainy side, so topcoat was a must.

Happy painting!
