Small Nfu-Oh haul & Frankening a Scrangie dupe

I was hoping that I'd get to the secret contents of that box I posted days ago and work on my concept nails. Unfortunately, my time was spent tackling a different project...Hanging a new bedroom door in an old, not square or level jam. Not an easy job- even for experienced carpenters...and I am not a carpenter.
While dh slept on the couch, (where he was safe from me), I hung the door, *and* it only took me 6 hours.
~It was quite fitting that as I was hammering the last finishing nail into the molding, the postman came with a package.
My Nfu-Ohs!!!

Before the postman was out of my driveway, I had my pinky swatched with #51. Picture taken after construction clean-up.

For the rest of the evening, I played around with pigments and glitter, taking a stab at duping Scrangie.
I need to work on it some more... Am I on the right track?  Don't forget- click on pics for largest size!

Those nfo are very lovely polishes!
And your francken looks good!

But where is the picture of the door? O:-)

Wooohooo! Congrats on your new NfuOh polishes! =) I bet they'll all look stunning on you. I love the franken you made. It really looks like a Scrangie dupe.
That's one of the reasons why I love you so much. You're so good at so many things. Creative woman! =)

I can't wait to wear #211, a slightly greyed out periwinkle blue!

That is the highest compliment ever!
I've spent my entire adult life learning how to do things on my own so I don't "need" a man.
Even more than that- whatever I do, (from the simplest to most complicated), I do to have a sense of value-self worth.

Lucky you! I long for NfuOhs. Nice reward for all the work you did. Door hanging is not something I will even think of attempting. Good thing my brother-in-law is a master carpenter!
(I did install a new thermostat but my dad the elctrician supervised.)
You are amazing.

I need to send you a swatch of Scrangie for comparison. It looks like you are on the right track, maybe a bit darker base.
Nfu-ohs are the best gift a hard working, door hanging girl can get!

You go girl! My mother is like that too! She always fixes things herself. =)
