Essie Starry Starry Night, say hello to A Midsummer Night's Dream! I made my franken because I decanted OPI Text Me, Text You after I dropped and broke the bottle. I know I'll never use it to layer over other n/p (layering just isn't my thing), so I decided to make a franken with it by using Wet 'N' Wild Nocturnal. The glitter was too subtle and it was wayyyyy too sheer, so I kept adding drops of Nocturnal, then added some silver glitter and gold glitter n/p (forgot the names, but they were China Glazes with clear bases), and ChG Golden Enchantment and Fairy Dust. It turned out into an AWESOME SSN-ish franken. It looks like the night sky during summer (hence the Shakespearean name :). It has so much depth, it's absolutely beautiful. The application was a bit horrendous, sheer-ish jelly streakiness, but it was worth the effort! The pics:

Happy St. Patrick's Day! The obligatory greeting and asking your friends after inspecting their clothing and accessories before pinching them is NOT something I do - I'm just to tired for that! I did, however, did an awesome patchwork mani with a green scheme, three different greens, Finger Paints Lucky in Love Lime for the Shrek-ish green part, China Glaze Emerald Sparkle for the deep dark but still glittery green, and Nubar Lime Green Glitter for the sparkly lime part (Hard Candy Sweet P is a dupe of it). I initially used Zoya Ivanka, but since I was doing my mani at night, it was hard for me to tell Ivanka and Emerald Sparkle apart (I couldn't make the lines straight if I can barely tell them apart in the dark). I'll stop talking about the festive patchwork and let the pictures speak for themselves!
This is so much green goodness, I feel like I've overloaded...on green. I never thought that would be possible!
