#FF : White Swan

This week's franken is a bit special. Earlier this week I was tweeting with Jeanette from the-swatchaholic and Adina, the creator of A England and one thing leading to another I decided I'd post a white holo franken called Unicorn's Breath.

One thing you should know about holo pigments is that they are silver and frankening a true white linear holo would be extremely difficult. No matter what you do, your white will turn grey...
So today I decided to franken a scattered holo to keep the base color as white as possible. That's why I didn't call it Unicorn's Breath, I'll use that name if I manage to get it linear.
Apart from clear and white polish, I used some loose holographic spectraflair pigment but the coarse 35 microns grade in order to interfer as little as possible with the base color.
Unfortunately, there's been zero sun lately so here's White Swan under my OTT light, way less holo than in sunlight :'(

  17. @Meeka @thenailaholic @cshannon26 It's actually a bit whiter in real life but I couldn't get it both the base color and the holo right at the same time :'(

  18. Girls, you always make my day (or my weekend LOL) after the Franken Friday posts. Thank you so much for all your support ♥♥♥
    @Emma I use Essence cosmetics bottles. Usually the clear ones since I use lots of clear for frankening, plus they are super easy to clean.

  30. Hi, im new around here, but immediately hooked with your site! One question, thought. My problem is my nails are too short to have a generous amount of painting surface. I love how neat and perfectly right sized yours are. Could you post a tutorial on how to get acrylic nails that resemble your own? And also how to paint them or clean afterwards so that it looks as clean as yours do.

    Thanks a lot. Im sure is will benefit a lot of more people as well! :)
