Playing With The Queen of Hearts
It’s time for another frankenpolish inspired by the OPI Alice In Wonderland collection. I was so happy with how my Cheshire Cat franken turned out that I just had to try to make my idea of a white polish with red glitter come to life.
With the Queen of Hearts as my muse, I mixed up what I’m calling “Playing With The Queen of Hearts”. The song was running through my head while I was mixing/applying it so it seemed a perfect fit. Though I’m not sure I’m entirely in love with the color so I’d love your thoughts. Check it out after the jump!
After realizing how much polish I used to mix up my last franken I hunted down some baby polish bottles to make the process less wasteful. I can’t be dumping half a bottle of my fave polishes out just for a mix, especially discontinued ones. I purchased my bottles from The Supply Source for $5/dozen.
I had hoped to find a red glitter polish with a clear base in my stash but my bottle of Color Club Art of Seduction has found a new home. So while I was ordering polish bottles, I picked up some red glitter from The Supply Source as well. I mixed their Red Micro Glitter with Orly Gogo, a sparkly white.
I wanted a shimmery/glittery white because I thought it would suspend the glitter better and I was right. Even after sitting a few days, the glitter is still pretty well dispersed.
After adding some more glitter, the red is definitely more apparent though I’m still not sure I love it. It reminds me of this white chocolate bar I had years back. It had red speckles throughout the chocolate that looked a lot like this.
What do you think? I’m wondering if chunkier glitter would have been better. Maybe I should hunt down some actual heart shaped glitter, like those Maybellines. What would you suggest to make this a better mix?
