Franken: Welcome to the Twilight Zone

Supplies for Twlight Zone Nail Polish Franken

Happy Thursday! Hope y'all are having a fabulous week! Hang in there, it's almost Friday. Sorry for the lack of posts. It's been a super busy week, but I'm getting back on track. Today I'm bringing you a Franken that I created a couple of weeks ago called, Twilight Zone.

Ever since I started messing around with Frankens, I've learned it's much easier beginning with an existing base color like, Petite's Night. Creating Twilight Zone was a sinch! All you need: 1/4 tsp MAC Gold reflects, 1/4 tsp MAC 3D Silver, Petites Night and mixing balls.

Suggestions for Glitter: For best results, I suggest using any cosmetic glitter opposed to craft glitter. It's dense, fine and perfect for creating frankens.

Let's get to the swatches. 

Twlight Zone Black Franken with glitter

Twilight Zone, black with gold and silver holographic glitter. What you can't see in my swatches, the gold glitter. It's really pretty, alot like Sephora's 212 minus the red flakies.

Have a fabulous night!

You make me want to try frankening. Is it difficult to pour nail polish into another polish bottle? I am clumsy, and am thinking I will need to wear a hazmat suit for this!

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.
