I hope you've all had a great week.
Mine was very busy, I worked a lot and broke my left index nail. That's my swatching hand so I was kind of bummed and had to file all my nails down :'(
I guess I'll have to buy me some extra polish shopping this weekend to make up for that...
Enough rambling, I know a lot of you gals have been waiting all week for this Franken Friday post and I need to say that I feel so grateful and overwhelmed every time reading your comments.
Gray Matter is a slightly green based gray packed with silver and light gold flecks. I had Orly Pixie Dust in mind and I wanted to franken a similar finish. Not necessarily an exact dupe but something close enough to satisfy my craving. After hesitating between a gray, a periwinkle and a mauve base, and with the unanimous votes of my best np friends, I went for this :
Here's what I used :
40% of well pigmented grey
40% of clear
10% of silver and gold foil in the same proportions
I also added 5 drops of OPI Bling Dinasty to add a bit more gold shimmer, that turned the blue based gray into a green based gray.
I really like how Gray Matter turned out and I hope you girls will like it too.
I also wanted to take this opportunity to tell you that I'm going to feature a small franken FAQ next Friday so feel free to ask me any questions you may have in the comments and I'll add them to the list.
