first franken + bonus mess

I read a post from Amanda Panda that lead me to Rebeca likes nails blog on instructions how to create a franken to dupe Deborah Lippmann's Glitter is in the air polish. I love the original polish but right now is way out of my $$$ league, so custom dupe sounded great and a lot of fun. I read the instructions several times, checked what I needed and it looked very daring to dupe Glitter is in the air, but not impossible. I did it and while it didn't turned out as pretty as Amanda and Rebeca's version, I was quite pleased to be my first time making frankens :)

Didn't exactly measured anything, just added - shacked - tested and kept tweaking it until I got something of my liking. I need to add more clear polish or thinner because I went crazy with the glitter and its too thick, but like I said, its OK to be my first and super fun! :)

what I used:
Wet n Wild party of five glitter
Sallys mini glitter polish - no name
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in white out
Bettina: clear (not shown), pink and purple polish

I didn't applied it neatly because I was just trying it out, but you can appreciate the results
