Every now and then I get a feeling where I must.do.something.creative or I feel like I'll explode. I'm terrible at art, so I usually do the closest thing I can to art, mixing random nail polishes together. Like my attempts to paint or draw, my polishes usually look a lot better in my head than they do in real life. I KNOW this is going to happen everytime I attempt "art" but it still manages to surprise me every time when it comes out looking like poop. Oh, well, at least I am a talented artist on the inside. It's the inside that counts right? Oh wait, that phrase only applies to beauty. Well, crap.
Anyway, I'll subject you to some of my franken attempts. Like the post title mentions, I have a failure, a (semi) success, and one I am ambivalent about. I'll go from ugly to pretty, just because I like to save the best for last. Oh, and only one has a name, mostly because i'm terrible at thinking of names and also because I don't really care about names anyway!
Oh, and these swatches are obviously from when my nails were longer than my current nubs.

So there ya go. I have 3 more frankens I took pictures of, so I can post those sometime if you want. I'm really itching to make more frankens but I ran out of bottles! The little bottles you see here were from packs of three water-based polishes from the dollar store. Since the polish was water-based (and completely useless) I was able to just wash these out, dry them and reuse 'em.
Thank you for reading and have a great day/night/whatever!
