Green of the Night: Goddess of the Forest

Dark Green Franken using MAC pigments

Happy Sunday ya'll! Hope you had an awesome weekend. It's another segment featuring my newly found addiction, making Frakens! Today I'm bringing you a creation that's oh so heavenly for any green lover! 

It was only a matter of time before I tapped into a dreamy dark green...I'm really, really excited to show ya'll this one! The turnout was unbelievable with MAC's Forest Green pigment.

Let's do it, to it! 

Goddess of the Forest franken nail polish

Dark Forest Green nail polish

Goddess of the Forest is pretty simple..No brain work needed! The name was inspired from the riches and darkness of the forest combined with gold and glitz of a goddess. Another potential name, Green of the Night...It was a toughie. Which one do you guys like better?

It's described as a deep forest with green and blue micro-shimmer and gold glitter. This one applied similar to OPI's Jasper Jade, black and semi streaky. But after the third coat, my application evened out completely.

What I used: Petites clear polish (mini size .25), 1/4 tsp MAC Forest Green, 1/8 tsp Reflects Gold glitter. two nail polish balls (aka bb's) and mix together.

Here's a comparison of some look alikes. Goddess of the Forest is a tiny bit blackend with gold glitter.

I plan on posting a Franken tutorial soon. Have a wonderful day!

And yep, I love it! I like the Goddess of the Forest name best, I think it's a tad more poetic, which this deserves! It's just a shade different than the other two polishes you swatched it with.

I agree, frankening is so much fun! I am upset that I recently threw away a ton that I decided I hadn't worn in years, but now I found frankening and I love it! This is beautiful!

Hi Steph,
Love your blog. You wrote: Always wrap the free edge or tip throughout each step. I didn't see this step in the video. Could you please explain how to do the wrap process and with what material. Thank you.

I am wondering if these gel polishes can be used with other gels. I have a different system with a different brand of base coat and top coat, can the different brands of gel mix?

I've had my kit for a couple of months now and love the way it lasts; but the Structure and Brilliance brushes are starting to stiffen and so is the gel in the bottles. Anyone else having that issue? Is there a way to thin them out?

Hi, does anyone know if I can thin out the red carpet base coat so that it is easier to apply?

Hi Prinzy,
It was a gorgeous color! I remember picking up a few bottles because I loved the color so much! lol! Actually, yes, I'm launching a store in the next couple of weeks. I have everything built, I'm just working on the Terms and Conditions right now, so it should be very, very soon.

I only have about 10 Studio M colors in the store currently, but I will be taking special pre-orders once it opens.

Hi Sarah,
I'm not sure about retail stores, but you can still find them on

Sarah said, on Jun 12th, 2012 2:19 pm regarding Summer Collection: China Glaze Poolside
Can I still buy them in the stores now?

I've been playing with this system for about a month now. I love it! When I first started I used the clear just so I could get a feel for it. Then I got adventurous and tried a "sandwich" with a China Glaze color. It probably would have stayed on longer if I had been able to seal off the edges, but my nails were so short it was a bit difficult. The next time I used RCM gel polish in Simply Stunning (a pale slightly shimmery nude color). This time I had gotten enough practice to really make my coats thin and it worked out fabulous. I'm trying to send all my friends the Ulta 20% coupon (5/26 is the last day) so they can get a kit for about $64. :) Now I hope to get a little creative with color combos and nail design. Thanks for the review.
