Franken Time! Irish Gold

The other day I was pulling out my franken supplies and my husband came in and said "Are you making a zombie?" Um, yes hun, a zombie :P He then decided that I needed to make "a green that's a little darker than your shirt with gold flecks and those flaky things from that other polish." That other polish being Hidden Treasure. So I gathered some polishes and here's what I came up with, it actually turned out really nice! You will have to excuse the pics a bit, there hasn't been a lot of sun around here the last few days.

I made him name it too :P

I know this looks horribly bumpy or gritty but the polish really wasn't. I'm not sure why it looks like that *sigh*

I think this one would really benefit with some sun to show off the gold glitter and flakies better. I started with a base of a random bright green dollar store polish, I added a little bit of China Glaze Jolly Holly to darken it up and a tiny bit of Revlon Beach to yellow it out. I also added some China Glaze 5 Golden Rings for some gold shimmer/glitter and of course some Hidden Treasure for the flakies! The only sad part is the flakies end up showing mostly gold in this polish instead of the different color flashes.

I'm really happy with how this turned out, this color screams spring to me :) I hope you enjoyed checking it out!
Thanks for looking!
