Desire so strong you had to have it yesterday...Franken- Greyvid Copperfield by Lacquester

 Seen on Instagram, maria_bloodrednails
*EDIT* Can be purchased here
 Perhaps these are different batches or a revamp, or photographer skills...they do not look like the same polish. I LOVE the instagram version, so I frankened one up.
I used- Sally Hansen Extreme Wear in Grey Area #330, Kleancolor Chunky Copper and Wet n Wild Clear.
I really shouldn't post minutes before I leave for work. I made an error on where to purchase Greyvid Copperfield....fixed now. Seems it's out of stock. I WILL be purchasing the original when it becomes available. In the mean time, I'll enjoy my franken.

Purchased this Orly DADA years ago in some hole-in-the-wall beauty store in Philadelphia. Purple jelly and warm pink it. No number or name on the bottle.

I think I will stamp over this soon. I have these fimo pieces that remind me of peacock eyes, that I might add. Purchased three wheels of them because I liked them so much, at that same store in Philadelphia.

Tinkering with stamper holders

 This is what I did to my Wistonia holder. (All the gold pieces to the FCC polish on left are removable. I used the bottom half as a sheath.) While the holder itself works better with my hands, and isn't top heavy anymore, I still spend a lot of time getting the head in just right. This holder needs an inner lip.

 Found this item at work (I'm still managing the same restaurant). I think it came from the 5 gallon cooking oil cartons we order.  My XL stamper heads fit just right...and there's an inner lip, so I cut it down and sanded the edge.

The Clear Jelly head fits as well. I've been having trouble using my CJS due to glare. I actually thought it was my lighting, however, when I look through this holder, I can see my nail perfectly!
