Deborah Lippmann and Franken Frosting

Hi everyone!  Today's post is going to be a little different.  I have 2 different cameras, and 3 different batteries, but they're all dead, and I can't find a singer charger.  I'm useless. lol.  So, I had to resort to my phone and instagram.

The first couple of pictures I have feature Deborah Lippmann's My Prerogative from the She's Always a Woman limited edition set from Ulta and The Red, White, and Awesomely Blue Nail Polish by Franken Frosting.



The She's Always a Woman set is my first Deborah Lippmann purchase.  I was in Ulta looking for my brown polish for my last post, and I saw that they started carrying DL.  I couldn't decide which to get so I figured I'd try the little mini set. :)  My Prerogative is nice royal blue creme that applies super easily with its little brush. Personally, I think it would be nice if all nail polishes came in minis and/or had little brushes.

Then, in the spirit of Election Day, I used The Red, White, and Awesomely Blue Nail Polish by Franken Frosting to spruce it up a bit!  This polish has a mix of red, white, and blue glitters in different size round shapes as well as bar glitters and a few squares.  I think the base is red.  I mean it is red, but I'm not 100% sure if its suppose to be or not.  I think it is, but I'd probably like it just clear.  That's me though.  I definitely had to use a couple of coats of top coat.


 Next, we have another DL from the set, and it is called Putty in Your Hands.  It is a GORGEOUS creme taupe. In my opinion, it is an elegant work safe option.  (I tend to wear all kinds of polish when I go to work though)

 

While, this manicure would have been perfect on its own, I really wanted to try out another polish I purchased from Franken Frosting called Hey Cutie.  It has blue bar glitter, hot pink holo glitter, and tiny light purple glitter. I like it on the taupe, but I think it would look best on white or another bright color. :) I had to use a good amount of top coat with this glitter as well. Bar glitter can get crazy!


I purchased Franken Frosthing on Etsy.  and my Deborah Lippmann trio (I'll post about the 3rd polish, Raspberry Beret soon!) at Ulta.
