I have always heard about the term but i have never tried it out myself. For those who don't know what "frankening" means....its to mix your pigments to create a new nailpolish color!!!(or even 2 separate nail polish colors together). How cool is that?So yesterday when i was playing around with my "faces"(the canadian brand) stack of pigments i thought....why not????

This one is really finely milled and they do come in amazing colors.I have already done a look with it and will be posting it soon. By the way i am starting to loooooooooveeeeeeee these pigments. They have amazing quality,really pigmented and they show up real well on the eyes. I will review the pigments too real soon. Plus they are affordable as they come in stacks....so worth a shot for those who like pigments.

Now coming back to the post. Things you will need. Your fav pigment(color), a small plastic cap,15-20 drops of clear nail polish,a tooth pick and thats it. Lets start!

Can you see those little shimmery particles????

I chose this clear polish as it is real cheap.

Take a small plastic cap. Put a bit of those pigments and pour 15-20 drops
of clear nail polish and stir it with a tooth pick till you get the above consistency.
Now apply your new "new franken polish"(term used to describe nail polishes
that has been custom made) & ENJOY!

Doesn't that look great? I put another coat of clear nail polish
on top to get a glossy look

The great thing about this method is the fact you can create any color
polish you want and can also make those colors tat you find difficult
to get from the market. The downside is that you have to have the
pigments with you.The faces pigments if you buy them as a stack
then i think its a good deal! good quality, cheaper than mac &
they have some amazing colors!

So, ready to take out your fav pigments and start frankening?

C ya......
