Franken: Luxuria / Lust

Hello lovelies! A huge welcome to all the new followers who have found your way to our blog through the giveaway or from the awesome LTHP spun sugar mani! I'm really humbled and glad that you've come to join us in our little polish well. I truly hope that you'll enjoy yourselves here! :)

It's a glorious sunny day for swatching but I'm still growing out the nail break on my index finger so I didn't get any swatches or nail art done this week too. Instead, I put on my lab clothes and tried my hand at frankening again. I simply couldn't get the 7 Deadly Sins off my mind! >.<

Unfortunately, my frankening attempt this time didn't turn out to be as great as I'd hoped but I thought I should still share it and ask for your opinion :et

Here's what I got when I tried working on Luxuria / Lust:


Since I've already used red for Ira / Wrath, I went with a deep plum/purple jelly this time for a more seductive and mysterious look. When I was happy with the base color, I started adding glitter polishes - purple, red, black, gold... And then I thought... hmmm, maybe I went a little overboard with the glitters. lol! :f


What do you think?
Is it seductive enough or a little too much for you?

On a side note, I've been looking around for frankening supplies such as suspension bases and solvent-resistant glitters to make more polishes for you (since some of you have asked for Ira/Wrath) and me. Do you have any sellers to recommend? Any help will be greatly appreciated! :k

xoxo,
mich

p.s. There are still about two or three more days to enter our giveaway and nail art contest for a chance to win awesome polishes from OPI, Orly, China Glaze and even some of my exclusive frankens! So what are you waiting for? Head over here for more details!

[edit 29 July]
Due to the positive response that I've received for this franken, I have decided to include this in the prize pack for the nail art contest too! So go get your nails painted! Contest ends 31 July! ^_^

  1. This is lovely, Mich! <3 I think adding a little more gold would help making it pop more, but I think you nailed the sultry, seductive look. Can't wait to see the rest of the '7 Deadly Sins' series! x)

    How could lust have too much glitter?! I think it's perfection. I wish you could sell these new ones you're making to me too! Invidious and the Virgo one are just too awesome, I'll run out in no time!

  6. I love the complexity of this and the color! I think it invokes lust very well! Unfortunately, I don't know offhand of anyone who ships base internationally right now, but I can look around. I think someone I bought from a few times was looking at getting hazmat certifications to do so, but I'm not sure if they're ready yet. I'll send you an email later with what I find!

  9. Thank you Camila! <33 I was thinking the same when I added some gold glitters. But the gold glitter polish I used had the larger hex glitters that I don't really like in this mix so I didn't add too much of it lol! I will definitely try adding some more gold in the mix the next time I tweak the formula! xx
