I wanna RBL No More War.
I missed the sale!!! Didn't I read *somewhere* that it was 5pm-10pm EST on Tuesday? I closed the restaurant early and rushed home only to be sorely disappointed.
I can well-afford $18 for a bottle of nail polish, however, unless it has flakies or super special glitter or something- I refuse to pay that much for a "plain" polish.
Anyway, I spent the rest of Tuesday night sulking, then getting angry with myself for being such a baby over something so silly.
I'm over it now, and all I can say for myself is that for a few hours, I forgot where I came from. There are much more important things in this world than a missed sale for nail polish. Which brings me to my Franken. I Don't Iguana This.( I know, I know...stupid name.) From the pictures below, it's pretty obvious where I was trying to go with it- dupe NMW. I worked with what I had, knowing full-well that I would not come as close as I had wanted. It's okay, though... I was going to be happy with any olive green I came up with. Once that was settled, I even added a bit of shimmer. :)
Although it is no NMW, I actually really like what I made. As I gave it a final shake before the last swatch, it came to me what my next mani would be -with my Franken as the base, of course. I'm actually sporting it right now, and I absolutely love it. There is a story behind it which means a lot to me. Pictures will have to wait for daylight. (I *hope* we have sun today in New Jersey.)
Pre-clean-up & no top-coat. And yes, that is a "picking" boo-boo you see on my middle finger. *Sigh* I really was doing so well...7 months no picking or gouging.
