... Franken Fail ...

Firstly thanks everyone for following FrankenMarch. I had a ball doing something different and having a series to focus on for the month. Apologies that my health played a part in not posting as regularly as I would have liked but it couldn't be helped. I picked up a lot of new readers and I really hope that you'll stick around.

For those following the Little Roo polishes I still have a few more metallics and other bits that I will showcase here in the next few weeks.

The Franken contest is now CLOSED and I am just double checking the votes and a winner should be announced today or tomorrow depending on how much time I get [I'm supposed to be getting ready for a wedding this minute - not blogging. Whoops]

I'll leave FrankenMarch with a fail ... an interesting fail but a fail. I come up with a lot of interesting concepts in my mind ... but generally putting them into practice turns into different results than I imagined.

Shatters always intrigue me ... partly because of their formula to actually shatter but partly because they are rather unloved in general. My question was this - could you make a holo shatter???

So I decanted a mini bottle of black shatter and got to work. Firstly add some SF ... now I had to use a lot to get the rainbow to appear as all my shatters are a lot thicker than polishes.
[dodgy fail photos to go with the fail polish]

And what happened was a big thick mess. No shatter [well it tried on one finger] but it's just disgusting. I'm embarrassed to even show you the mess. Also being a shatter it was a bitch to remove as it was just everywhere by the time I finished.
Gross .... so gross!
Even the holo couldn't overcome this chunky mess! Yuck!

The only positive I walked away with ... is the fact that this is still a dark black. Every other SF black franken I've tried to make has had a silver tinge to it while this is still definitely black. I may revisit this bottle another day armed with a heap of polish thinner as it does have possibilities but I think the shatter component is definitely long gone.

While this is a good idea in theory unless you have a heap of SF to spare I wouldn't recommend going for it. I wasted heaps on this and while I'm glad to have done it I know I wouldn't dare to it again.

... Little Roo - Budgie Smugglers ...

Litte Roo - Budgie Smugglers
As always - email me if you are interested
Another day another hilarious funny franken name.  "Budgie Smugglers" is slang for basically tight fitting mens Speedos. Budgie is the shortened form for the name Budgerigar [yes the bird] and yeah .... well ... I guess smugglers have to put them somewhere.
Opposition Leader Tony Abbott ... doesn't ever seem to wear much else apparently

Moving on ... so Budgie Smugglers is a beautiful metallic blue that reminded me of the ocean [hence the link to the name]. This is 3 coats and unlike the other metallic blue I made this one isn't a jelly but it does dry nice and fast and seemed to hold it's own without any lumps or bumps.
Oooh - glare! Sorry about that.

Before I go ... I think there is about 30 hours or so left to get your votes in for the franken comp! So exciting!! So there is still time for you to get some last minute votes! Thank you to everyone who voted so far! They are all fantastically wonderful.  I'll have another franken for you guys tomorrow!

... Little Roo - I'm Beached As Bro ...

Little Roo - I'm Beached As Bro
As always - Little Roo polishes are only available if you ask nicely ;)
Firstly before I go too far ... I'm asked this a lot so I wanted to point this out. My Little Roo labels are simply clear labels used with a laser printer. You can buy these sheets in a decent stationery shop or online on somewhere like eBay. I buy the full sheets and cut to size. If you enlarge the bottle you can see on this shot that it's a label not glass printed!  Okies ... onto the polish.

Firstly the name - this colour reminded me of the whale from the show Beached Az [which hopefully will appear as a clip at the bottom]. For those non-Aussies it's basically a show about a whale who gets beached in New Zealand ... but ... it's done by Australians so the accents are exaggerated and that kinda makes it funnier. [Yes Australian and Kiwi accents are different ... ] I chose the name in normal English simply as I was having a hard time deciding whether to write brew or bru! Ah the problems in life.  Now I see them side by side it's not the same shade of blue but too late - the label is already stuck on!

Now ... this is definitely the strangest polish I've ever made. I'm not saying it as a bad thing but just saying I don't have anything like it. It's a gorgeous metallic blue ... but ... it seems to be on the jelly side of life. Interesting. Don't ask how I did this - it just happened.

This is 3 coats as it is quite sheer but it is extremely smooth without a top coat. I would however recommend waiting between coats for it to dry a bit otherwise it dents easily even with a quick dry top coat.

Oh and cos I was bored ... here it is matted :) Pretty!


** I'll give a disclaimer as there is a single swear word ... although I believe it's  pronounced "shut" when spoken and not the other word!! **

... Little Roo - Ranga ...

Little Roo - Ranga
As always - Little Roo polishes are only available if you ask nicely! ;)
My sister came to visit last week and had fun creating with me. I think I've managed to pull together a collection of metallics but I'm not quite happy with it yet as I think it needs more colours and I ran out of bottles - whoops!

I was outvoted on the name for this but I present to you "Ranga". Like all countries we seem to pick on people with red and orange hair. Why is this? Every country seems to have their own word for redheads ... interesting. Are the rest of us that jealous that we need a special name for them? Over the last few years "ranga" has become the Australian term for someone with red hair. It's like a shortened version of the word "Orangutan". I will have to wait another day to call an orange polish "bluey"

My sister is the red head in the family and she chose this name. I guess with every name it may offend some but I will say now that I definitely don't mean to be rude or offensive ... just humourous.

Now ... back to the polish. This is 3 coats of metallic browny orange which has a slight golden glow in some light. I dunno why metallics are so unloved when they are so shiny and pretty!  As with majority of metallics there is some slight streaking that is noticeable when you look closely but apart from that this one worked out surprisingly well. I never knew metallics where easy to make from scratch!

I'll be back tomorrow with another from the metallic collection and leave you with some use of the word in question care of Summer Heights High [caution for some 15+ language!]  I hope this clip works worldwide.
I think we all went to school with someone like Jonah. I know I definitely did.

... Mandypants Frankenbutt ...

MandyPants FrankenButt
Made by Mandy!
Keep those votes for the FrankenMarch comp coming! There are 3 entries going head to head at the moment and every vote counts so please vote if you haven't already! I'm sure the makers will thank you for it!

Todays beautiful franken comes care of Mandy which I received this week and it's gorgeous. I have temporarily lost my piece of paper with the name on it but I'm pretty sure it's called Mandypants Frankenbutt [please correct me if I'm wrong!!] and what doesn't this polish have?  It has glitter, it has holo, it has hex pieces, it has diamonds, it has bar glitter, it has multi colour pieces in multi sizes, it has secretly hidden glitter that only appears in certain lighting conditions plus it's crammed into a purple polish. What's not to love as it has something for everyone!

This is 3 coats plain as I was too excited to find a base coat and this actually dried really smooth without a topcoat which surprised me as usually I will sit and pick at glitter pieces that are lumpy.
Check out the action in that bottle! Wowsers!
** Final Verdict **
I could never unlove a franken - they just remind me of the creator and I know it was made with love and that in itself fills me with joy and happiness everytime I look at my nails. This one is epic and has a lot of love to give. Thanks Mandy for sharing your fantastically awesome polishes with all of us.

... Love Thy Polish - Royalty ...

Love Thy Polish - Royalty
Check out the FB page HERE
Hi ya blogger! Miss me?? My reign of sleepiness has continued on unfortunately and I've not been able to concentrate on much lately which has included blogger. I'm having a decent day today so hopefully I'll be able to hang with you lot for the rest of the month - awesome!

Todays franken comes from the lovely Em over at Nails in the Desert. This is her line called "Love thy polish" and I give her credit. She actually goes out and sells these at a marketplace and doesn't rely on us online folk in regards to her sales. Good work!

This is Royalty and it's a beauty! It's a fantastic purple with a scattering of purple glitter through out that appears more predominantly in certain light. It applies like a jelly and it was fast drying and remarkably smooth which was a pleasant surprise considering the glitter. I've used 3 coats in the below swatch and I struggled with finding you guys the best photo as my cameras insisted that purple glitter was blue but I hope that you still see the beauty within.
** Final Verdict **
I've really enjoyed wearing this and let's face it ... you can never have enough purple polishes! Gorgeous bottle and gorgeous contents inside! Thanks for sharing your creativity with us Em!

FRANKEN COMP - PIC HEAVY!!!

Ok everyone here it is!! Be warned this is a LONG post! Well worth it though as I've never showcased so many pretties at one!

Some of the recipes were long and complicated - hats off to you ladies [and gentleman!!]! While I like frankening I draw the limit at a certain number as I just don't want to have to duplicate so many steps if it works out fantastic!  Due to this I've only listed the ingredients involved not the actual recipes - if you fall in love and want to recreate yourself then drop me an email for the recipe in full.

I'm totally jealous of all of these as they look really beautiful. Now onto the entries! [How to vote on a winner is at the bottom of this post!!]

Verily Verdant by Jme
"Verily Verdant is the colour of lush, rolling mountains - if your average mountain had countless hidden gems, that is! Blue-toned holographic glitter catches the eye among the bright green hexagonal sparkles. A turn of the hand into the light will reveal a mesmerizing flash of ever-shifting blue, green and gold shades from the fine triochrome bar and hexagonal glitters. All this shininess lie suspended within the mid-green jelly base, giving the polish a layered depth. This franken polish looks stunning on its own and when layered over other colours as well. One layer of Verily Verdant over black allows the green-themed glitter to glow in beautiful contrast."

... Quick contest related post ...

Howdy everyone

I've been getting many emails asking if the contest is still open ... YES! But only for about 3 hours.

Everyone who has entered and I have received should have a confirmation email.
[except Destany, Catherine and Elizabeth ... it is coming!!!!]

If you don't have one please resend! I am cleaning out my inbox as fast as I can but if anyone is having issues sending please leave me a comment here and I will sort it out!

Cheers! Bring on tomorrow! So many pretties!!

Oh and a standard amusing photo for your enjoyment ...

... Move over Glossybox ... it's Shatter me Claire ... in a box ...

COUNTDOWN TIL NO MORE ENTRIES!!! <--- Ooh timer removed as it was glitching!! Having a mid Franken-March breather today ... only a few more hours to get those submissions in to be in the running for a great competition prize!! So if you haven't entered already then what do you have to lose? Go for it! I've added a ticker to count down and hopefully that will work in each timezone *fingers crossed*  I'm accepting until the 14th has clicked over in every timezone. Anyway - for the last few months I've brought to you the contents of various sample boxes and this month I thought I'd go head to head with them to see if I can buy a better box by just heading to the local shopping mall with $15.

Ooh - funny coloured plastic money!!

Right - so armed with my $15 I headed out with a few rules.
#1 - I had to buy a minimum of 5 items
#2 - I had to buy things that were discounted/on sale
#3 - I had to buy things that I would actually use or really wanted to try
#4 - I could buy anything beauty or items that I had received in previous boxes
#5 - I had to get as close to $15 as possible without going over budget.

So ... let's go shopping! I'll admit I had a ball. Rummaging through clearance bins. Looking for items on sale. Comparing items store to store. Like the boxes ... I had no idea on what I was going to get! The hardest part was staying on budget. I saw a lot of gorgeous items but it would have put me way over budget if I'd purchased them all.

Here's what I ended up with ...
Fruit and Nut Picnic [on nom nom]  - $1.00 [was $1.80]
Lipton English Breakfast Tea Bags - $2.11 [was $3.67]
Face of Australia Polish Remover - 93c [was $3.93]
Pomegranate and Grapefruit Bath Bomb - 99c [was $3.99]
Lemon and Lime Bath Bomb - 99c [was $3.99]
Lux Body Wash Tahitian Escape - $2.99 [was $5.49]
Face of Australia Polish in Angel Baby - $2.90 [was $6.45]
Peel off Masque - $2.99 [was $3.98]

Total Spent - $14.90
Total Full Price Value - $33.30
Total Savings - $18.40

I'm quite pleased with myself and I definitely managed to hit all 5 of the criteria I set myself and at least I know that this time my $15 has gone towards products I'll actually use! That delicious picnic has already gone ... mmmmmmmm!

If you have the time I highly recommend trying this for yourself. Pick a mall that has a lot of selection and go for it! I'd love to see what you end up with!

... Little Roo - Spit the Dummy ...

Keep those beautiful entries coming!! Not long now until submissions are closed! Go for it! The original post is HERE if you need a reminder!

Todays franken is one that I made a few weeks ago. Enjoy!!


Little Roo - Spit the Dummy
Spit the Dummy: explosion of anger, tantrum. A "dummy" is a baby's pacifier ("He spat the dummy when I turned up late")
Type - Custom Polish
I seriously struggle with green polishes. I struggle with making them so they don't look like Shrek or the colour of his swamp is hard!! A pretty green - not booger green! So after many failed greens I arrived at this which is a green with a tinge of yellow and green, silver and blue glitter through out.

I really like this - I wore it for a few days after I made it! YAY!
3 coats - no base colour

You can see in the bottle the yellow change in the sun. I'm not sure where this has come from as zero colour change pigments were used in this franken. Interesting - something to work out in the future I think.

Glitter removal wasn't too painful. Slight smell due to stinky suspension base.

... Guest Post - Lab Muffin ...

Todays Guest Post is from Lab Muffin! Seriously go check it out as it is not just full of fantastic nail love. It incorporates some fun scientific beauty facts that I know I for one have never thought about.  Thanks Michelle for writing this!

Also  - keep those FrankenMarch entries coming!!!! I'm loving seeing them all and there is definitely room for more!

~*~*~*~
I recently opened my mail to find China Glaze CG in the City, a gorgeous mix of small purple, silver and bronze glitters in a clear base. Naturally, I had to franken with it!
I mixed CG in the City with ulta3 Twilight Fever (purple shimmer in brown creme, Paradoxal dupe) and ulta3 Berry (purple creme) in a ratio of about 5:4:1 to get this dusty purple-with-glitter-bits colour, which I'm calling Mercury (after both the planet and the Freddie).


It dries a bit rough, but it's easily fixed with topcoat. I love how the little bits of glitter make the polish look like a perfectly clear starry night sky.

... Guest Post - Nails in the Desert

Todays guest post is from the beautiful Em at Nails in the Desert ... and don't think it's just a pretty name! She really is in the desert parts of Australia!

*~*~*~*
Hi everyone!
My name is Emma and I'm an Aussie blogger. I blog over at http://nailsinthedesert.blogspot.com!

Sarah Claire is a good friend of mine and she inspires me a lot with her innovative ideas with polish and blogging. Her idea of having a "frankens month" theme for March is fabulous and I jumped at the chance to be involved.

I have recently started my own custom nail polish line, Love Thy Polish. I've been selling them mainly at the markets in the small mining town I live in. It is so much fun creating polishes :D I thought I'd share one of my recent creations with you.

This is Sunday, Bloody Sunday:
Two coats. This is a gorgeous deep red jelly with a touch of purple. It has candy apple red glitter throughout which gives it a glowy effect.

Here's another look:
I'd like to see more glitter on the nail ... it looks like there is plenty in the bottle but I'm not entirely satisfied with how much came out onto the nail.

I created this custom polish with a suspension base and a combination of two red tints. I then added in the candy apple red glitter. A simple polish but a striking one :D

Thanks for reading, Shatter Me Claire followers.

... Girly Bits - Sailors Delight ...

Firstly ... my inbox is now free! Sorry to anyone who tried to email their franken entry only to have it bounce back. I'm extremely sorry that this happened and hopefully I've rectified that so please send your entries in!! Can't wait to see them.

Also I'm replying back to those entries I've received and added to the list. If you haven't heard from me in the next 24 hours please resend! Cheers.

Secondly ... I've been rather unwell as of late and sleeping a good 20 hours a day and still feeling lowsy so hopefully I'll be back on track soon. Thanks to the wonderful ladies who sent me guest posts to use during this time.  Luckily the only polish I've managed to put on my fingers lately was a custom polish made by Pam at Girly Bits.
Sailor's Delight is a beautiful orange that likes to change to a red depending on the light. It also has pretty gold micro glitter throughout. I used 3 coats in this pic but although there isn't a visible nail line in real life showing the camera seems to believe there is. It was fast drying with no unwanted surprises!
It's hard to photo when you are unwell :( 
The shimmer is there but I couldn't capture it beautifully :( Sorry

I'll be honest - something I don't like is the bottle and that's only because majority of my homemade frankens are in similar bottles and therefore the few Girly Bits I have in the 5ml range have gotten lost more than once in my own collection.  I'm super glad that the new full size bottles have the logo and name on them though! I always love to know who made what!

Apart from that I like this polish. It's vibrant and bright and I admire anyone with the guts to release a polish range and push to be successful.

Girly Bits is available from Llarowe so if it interests you then you might want to check it out. Oh and I'll leave you with some friendly advice - if you decide to search for swatches from this range do not use Google Image Search if you have kids around or are easily offended by pics of "girly bits" on celebrities.
