Frosted Cake

I`m sure that by now everyone has seen all the beautiful swatches of Lippmann`s Glitter in the Air. When I first saw this polish I was intrigued, it`s not really the look I would usually go for, but the more swatches I saw, the more it grew on me. And then inspiration struck as I was wearing my previous mani. I present to you my franken, Frosted Cake. The name came from a co-worker tonight that said that my nails looked like frosting on a cake :D

This franken is not meant to be a dup (as it isn`t near), but it was inspired by Lippman`s polish. It is a blue based (a lot more so then the picture portrays) milky jelly with multiple glitter in it. I used close to 1/4 of a bottle of Essie Waltz, about the same amount of a clear polish, 1/10th of a bottle of OPI What's With the Cattitude?, and 2/3 of a bottle of Wet N Wild Party of Five Glitters. The glitter does sink, so I basically shake it a bunch, do one coat on one hand, shake, do a coat on the second hand and repeat.

Unfortunately my middle finger on my swatching hand got a huge chip and is now nubby. I have a nubby nail on each hand now, looks so out of proportion :/
