This Christmas

Merry Christmas and happy holidays to those who celebrate the holidays! Today's quick post is a swatch of OPI Warm & Fozzie from their Muppets Collection. This is one of my favorites from the collection, that I knew I had to get. It's a warm brown copper with hints of gold and purple specks.

Thanks for stopping by and happy holidays again! :)

[Franken] Twisted Fantasy

Hello everyone! I hope you all are doing well. I'm doing so so... procrastinating from studying for my accounting final that's on Thursday, fml. I have no idea how to use the finance application on my TI 83 to find the bond issue price etc on it... and I can't seem to find anything (ie youtube videos or google links) that would help. What sucks is that the video with the guided example just tells you the input and the output but doesn't show you through an actual calculator. This whole semester and I haven't learned :X I knew I'd hate accounting from the start too.. :( Thankfully it's my last final of the semester... yep, since I go to a "public" college in NY, the school semester runs later than other colleges and universities in the country and NY area.

Anyways, last week or so, I wanted to make a franken since I purchased some base to use with glitters and mica powders, fyrinnaes, etc and wanted to give it a try. So here's my first end product that I'm excited about.

This was the first picture I took after I made it. This shows 2 coats with base and top coat as well. It's a darkened base with a slight blue shimmer, then I added a mixed blues eyeshadow glitters and silver holographic glitters into it and created Twisted Fantasy, I don't know why that name popped up but I just thought since it was dark yet I wanted something holographic with glitters that's what I got. :P You can't really see the mixed blue glitters (brand: Medusa Cosmetics) but I wish it showed a bit more. Sometimes you can see it here and there but the holographic glitters shine out more.

Despite it being winter, I did my nails again yesterday and found the perfect timing when there was some sunlight coming through my window. This time I layered it over black, to save on the polish since I used the last bits of the fyrinnae to create this. The following pictures are the results, which makes me proud of my franken! :) On another positive note, I FINALLY FOUND THE FOREVER21 HELLO KITTY RING!! Which makes it debut on my blog. An the fuzzy fuchsia is my Lotso bear the bf got from the Disney Store for me! :)

Thanks for stopping by! Happy polishing and happy holidays! :)
