Empty bottle
Half fill with fumed silica
Add 3 scoops of holo glitter (this was a heavy pigment eye shadow)
Stir with tool to blend
Add some Clear nail polish slowly, occassionally stirring with tool.
Add more clear nail polish
Add 2 mixing balls
Continue to shake like crazy.
Take picture
Leave overnight to test separation levels
Compare pic to morning bottle of polish
Add more fumed silica if necessary.


I made this today so I still need to test separation but fairly confident of mixture as its the same quantity I used for a different polish yesterday.

Woah, thanks Jasmina. That sounds rather complicated! Shocked I was hoping it would just be as simple as shoving some glitter and fumed silica in a fairly full bottle of top coat. clown

You can do but I found it took longer to add powder to an existing polish than to start from scratch. Fumed silica is really fluffy and light.

Thanks Ninjajane. I have to thank BarryM for that one making yellow topaz so beautiful. Just glad the glitters were solvent proof as per the listing else I would have cried. I have made another with gold holo glitter, golden stars and a deep yellow gold hex glitter- I think it's amazing. When I feel better I want to take piccies of my whole franken stash.

Changed the title of the thread (It would have been a lie as I made these this evening lol)

My St Patrick's day themed polish - might be adding some green pigment to it, picture doesn't show the green shred well. I would have swatched but enjoying my current mani too much.

Nice website, liking the price for the Red mica to get red at the moment I have to use red polish. I had an idea to make the orange monster from Monsters inc with the yellow barry M texture (I don't actually want the yellow version for keeps) I just don't know how it will react with another polish, it was easy to make my purple one as I used pigments.

I use Fumed Silica for my suspension base - I don't have any fancy tools or equipment but I only make for personal use so I am happy with it.

Your Frankens look great Smile I look forward to seeing some swatches! Especially the moons and the black/ silver glitter/stars. I tried to get some spectraflair last year and gave up in the end as noone seemed to do it any more. I got a couple of bottles of Hits holo top coat instead lol xx

Swatches as promised:

Holo moons
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

Preferred this one over the silver- needs more suspension as it was a bit of a fishing expedition.

St Patrick's day
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

One coat middle finger
Two coats ring finger
Think I like it best over white polish and on its own with 2 coats
Can really see how stained my natural nail is right now Sad

Starry night
[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]

The black diamonds are totally lost over the black polish, might make another one with just silver holo glitter and stars.
One coat ring finger
Two coats little finger

You have been having fun Smile Very pretty. I love the moons - when I tried making polish with 'big' glitter, i came to the conclusion it would probably be easier to use loose ones and place them where you want over wet polish lol. They just don't seem to want to come to the brush! xx

Thankyou, they are not too bad, tend to break at the corner rather than a large split. Just a pain when it means a large file down. The peeling has really improved which I accredit to using a glass nail file.

Just need to think what to name then now.
Just update my catalog and I have 77 Frankens! I am impressed, if I added that to my actual collection I have over 600 bottles now whoops (luckily it doesn't count "in my eyes").
