I recently made this frankenpolish (nail polish that you mix together yourself!) top coat of black and white hex glitter. As far as frankens go, this one isn’t particularly original or complicated; it’s basically just LA Girls Glitter Addict in Uninhibited, thinned out with some clear polish and with some loose white hex glitter added. I still haven’t decided on a name for this creation… I love making frankens; it’s so much fun!

The base shown here is Zoya Perrie, a warm toned, light yet bright purple. This polish is a one-coater with a great formula! The sun was setting when I took these photos, so apologies that the colour is a bit off – Perrie looks redder than she should. If you click on the large versions of the photos you can see where the glitter sort of sinks into the polish a bit leaving slight pock-marks… I’m not sure if this is just from not letting the base colour dry enough before adding the glitter coat, but a second layer of top coat would take care of it!

  1. Hi there, I have been looking for a white hex glitter that would work for Frankening. Do you know where you got yours/who makes it? Is it holding up well? I have tried a bunch but they have all melted 😦

    • Hi Gabrielle!

      I got my white glitter online from You Mix Cosmetics. It shows no signs of any changes after about a month in polish! They sell a variety of glitters and the site says they’re solvent-resistant; this is the only one I’ve tried so far out of the ones I ordered, but I’m hopeful that the others will be just as good!

      Hope that helps! 😀
