#FF : Sahara

Today I really wanted to share with you the franken I hesitated to post last week, the glitter had gotten the best of me but after a week of dark colors, a subtle taupe was a nice change.
Sahara is a very light almost nude taupe with a strong pink shimmer and lots of small, irregularly shaped, silver flecks.
This is two coats without topcoat :

Here's the recipe for Sahara :
1/2 Essence Princesses Rule
1/2 Essence Most Wanted
+ a few drops of white (I used about 6 drops)


I just love Essence Princesses Rule, it's a quite boring sheer french mani pink on its own but once mixed wih another color, it's amaaaaazing!
I might soon franken it again in a blue or green base...

That's it for today, I hope you liked Sahara and I wish you all the best weekend!

  4. It's by far the best taupe I've ever seen. There is something about it that moves me, gets to me. Maybe it is its delicate glow, or it's classy appearence, it's lemming alright!!! Which brand did you say it was??? ;-)

  13. This is so pretty!! I'm very much into nude colours right now, just can't get enough of them so your pics made my heart jump! This colour is super classy and with a twist that makes it a winner. Your frankens are usually beautiful, but it's very original to see frankens in pale colours, so as much as I loved the other ones, this is my top pick! Bravo!
