Navy Holographic Franken

I love navy, it's so clarifying on my skin.

Here is a franken that has been going around on the Makeup Alley board for a few weeks. A poster named JiLoverz posted some amazing photos in March of a purple holo franken and I really was excited to try it.

I mixed about 2-3/5ths of a bottle of Nocturne with about a tablespoon amount of Pink Rose Diamond then added some clear.





I think that I need more holo and perhaps a tad bit more clear.

This is really navy, the original was perhaps made with a darker Pink Rose Diamond, I used the lighter version.

Also, photographing holos is a challenge for me, this was no exception.

I love that it is truly blue, not purple or blurple.

I used an old Maybelline square bottle and only filled about a third of it, it was a spur of the moment franken.

Thank you for reading my little nail polish journal!


Update!
Well, Gotham Polish - a great little nail blog with some stellar swatches and some killah photoshop skills - asked me what I am calling this. I just thought, heck, I'll call it:

Gotham Nights

;D

    This is so beautiful.
    More holo and jelly-goodness would only add to its beauty.
