Week 12: Shopping my Stash for Untried Polish- Holographic Glitter Frankenpolish

Here is a polish I made and then promptly forgot about.  I actually wore it on my toes after I made it, but never on my fingers.  Glitter is such a PITA, but I've been wearing it a lot lately because I don't have time to change my nail polish every other day like I used to, and glitter stays on my nails forever without chipping. I've been resorting to peeling it off when I get tired of it, which isn't doing my nails any favors, but it is rather satisfying.
This franken was incredibly easy.  I have a little glass vial of holographic glitter from Wet n Wild (I think it was from one of their seasonal collections- maybe Halloween?) and I just dumped a bunch in some clear nail polish and added some metal balls to help with mixing.  It's gorgeous but it dries as gritty as sandpaper.  I think I used 3 coats of top coat to get it smooth enough to satisfy me. I've been wearing the polish for over a week now and I only have the tiniest bit of tip wear.  This glitter sticks to my nails like cement.  I am not looking forward to removal!  Although I'll probably give in and try to peel it off.  I actually took a picture of my non-swatching hand.  It was awkward, but I managed to sacrifice my comfort in the name of the blog! Oh, and click here to see untrieds from previous weeks.

This is two coats with base and top coat.
