Franken: Purple Rose of Virgo

I'm back at it again. I couldn't help it! Frankening is too fun ;p
I've so many franken ideas running through my head and it's killing me because I have no idea how to source for supplies in Singapore - especially the suspension base, cosmetic glitters, etc. Any suggestions? :(

Anyway, back to the polish. This time, I dabbled with glitter:


I apologize for the lobster claws. It didn't look like this IRL but my camera decided to give it a reddish hue. =x The nails and bottle are color accurate though.

Purple Rose of Virgo is a mix of micro, small and medium blue, silver, holographic and largely purple glitter and some shimmer suspended in a sheer purple base. Since it is too sheer to build up opacity, I layered one coat of it over black for the swatches in this post. Not only does that make the glitters stand out, it made removal a piece of cake too! No need for foils! :D

*bam* Instant galaxy nails! Yes, that was the reason behind the name.



Here's a look at it in the sun.
Look how bright some of the glitters are! They are literally glowing on the nails!


Here's a blown up of the nail *drools*:


Like a proud mama, I wore this as a full mani to my school and received quite a few compliments! I didn't think the glitters were that obvious but apparently it was quite eye-catching :D

What do you think of my Purple Rose of Virgo?

  12. Thank you!! I'm really flattered that you're willing to buy it! I haven't really thought about selling my frankens because I will have to source for more materials, etc. But I may consider that if I can find more supplies! Will keep you posted if I do :)

  13. Wow! This is incredible. It's the perfect "galaxy nails" look, in my opinion. I like how the glitter isn't too chunky.

    Unfortunately I haven't been able to get my hands on some of the glowy holographic glitters so I might not be able to reproduce this :(
