Most of you know what it means, but for those who don't, the term frankening refers to mixing colors and/or loose glitter. The problem is that some loose glitters melt or bleed. If they melt, the can be used for sprinkling (which I'll show tomorrow) if they bleed then the glitter looses a bit of color into the base and if it was clear to begin with, then you end up with a colored nail polish, and with a less intensely-colored glitter in it. Yesterday's franken was made with a glitter nail polish from Claire's, all I did was add some blue and red cremes to it. For today's franken I used loose glitter on a clear base, this one bleeds a bit, but it was ok because I liked how the base color turned out. If the glitter does not bleed it's a bonus, and it can be used as a layering nail polish. The second problem is that glitters sink to the bottom, so I recommend using a "suspension base", Orly Etoile, Orly Love Each Other or Sally Hansen Hard as Nails 300 Rock Candy. If you have free time, I highly recommend this activity.
