Laid-Back 31 Day Challenge: Purple

I'm so excited about today's post not only because purple is my favorite color, but because I have a very special polish to show you. This polish was created by Becca from Franken Femme. She's just started a new blog about frankening. Besides being really informative about the whole polish making process, Becca has created some truly gorgeous polishes. I'm always curious to see what she'll come up with next.
When I opened the package Becca sent I was almost speechless. It was like someone had created my perfect polish, probably because that's exactly what happened. I gave her a few hints about my favorite things and she whipped this up. I think that's the beauty in frankening. You can take all your favorite elements (purple, duochrome and flakies in my case) and smush them together into one amazing polish. Becca sent me a cute recipe card along with the polish. It says this polish was created using "suspension base, purple jelly polish, blue jelly polish, flakie polish, and duochrome glassfleck."

This bottle shot does a great job of capturing the color shift and showing how truly beautiful this shade is. I had a slightly harder time getting a good shot on my nails.
I'm still traveling and made the difficult and shocking decision to bring only this one bottle of polish with me (plus base and top coat of course). All the pictures here show two coats. It has great coverage and is completely opaque in two coats. Despite layering it on a bit thick it dried really fast. I'm curious to see what it would look like with a darker base coat underneath though, so you'll probably be seeing this one again soon.

Here's my attempt to capture the color shift on my nails. The picture above is indirect sunlight and below is direct sunlight.
