Bronzed out in Bling: Pink Sands Franken
Happy Saturday, ladies and gents! Hope your having a wonderful weekend so far. After having so much fun with my first Franken last week, I headed directly to my makeup closet to see what supplies I could gather up for the next one.
If you're a MAC junkie like me, you probably have boat loads of pigments and glitters that's been collecting dust. It's time to blow off the dust and put these multi-purpose pigments to good use making your own polish!
Making glitter nail polish is a breeze with the help of MAC's fabulous glitter reflects and a clear bottle of nail polish. The brilliants are fine, micro-glitter texture that's loaded with bling and gorgeousness.
Before I get to the deets, let's check out Pink Sands.
Naming your nail polish is actually really HARD, believe it or not. A big shout to the product guru's at OPI! My inspiration came straight from Pink Sand beach in the Bahama's. If you've never been, I highly recommend it.
Pink Sands is a sheer bronze with pink and gold micro glitter that's really gorgeous. In direct light you'll notice a bronze, pink foil effect that reminded me of Pink Sand glistening in the sun.
What I used: Petites clear (.25), 1/4 tsp antique gold, 1/4 tsp very pink, dash of gold reflects, 2 mixing balls (or bb's) and shake, shake, shake Senora.
What do you guys think? Have a wonderful weekend!

I love it! What a great name too, I'm glad you said how you came up with it - I've always wondered how the makeup companies do it :) I have a couple questions - do you pour out any of the clear? And can you buy BBs or do you get them from other polish bottles?

Very pretty franken Steph. Amazing how you can see little sparkles of pink and gold. Turned out nice. Good idea to use the Mac pigments. Do you know if Mac's regular pigments work also?

Thanks so much guys!! XOXO :) Hi Judy, Yes, I pour just a tiny bit out of the clear nail polish to make room for shaking and mixing up. BB's are super easy to find...and to my suprise my husband had a ton from his BB gun, so it really worked out! You can find them easily at walmart in the sporting goods/hunting section :) Hi Lucy, Thanks Lucy! Yes, MAC pigments work perfectly!

I think you should definitely start selling your franken polishes.
