Franken Time! Amalthea (As seen in Laura's contest)

Hello ladies! (And gents if there be any <.<) I've been mia but I have a good reason I swear! My husband and I were taking Scuba diving lessons and we are now Open Water certified, which is super fun and exciting! We live in one of the best diving spots in the world so I'm really happy we are getting out there to take advantage of it :) Unfortunately, spending a lot of time in the salt water like that is hell on my nails. I did a super cute mani last weekend but didn't have time to photograph it that day, then we went diving the next day and it was shot. Tip wear and chips all over the place, very sad really.

Aaaanyways, enough about that! I've entered in another franken contest (I do love those!) and now it's voting time. Am I trolling for your votes? Why yes I am! However, there's some super awesome frankens in there so I'd understand if you voted for someone else (I did :P). The contest is being hosted by Laura over at Laura's Lacquers, and she made it a theme contest called As Seen In Theaters. You can check it all out here. I loooooved the theme for this one and I really enjoyed making my franken. I will admit though, I had another movie in mind partially that I'd considered making one for but I couldn't decide what color to make for ROUS's hehe.

And now onto the franken! This little beauty is called Amalthea. I was a huge The Last Unicorn lover in my childhood and as I said in my blurb on her post, this movie popped into my head complete with a franken idea so I had to go with it. I'm really glad I did as I love how this turned out! So, without further ado, here she is!

I hope you like Amalthea! I could do a whole set for The Last Unicorn now, I mean the Red Bull is pretty obvious but I also have an idea for Schmendrick which I'd have to name Magic, Magic, Do As You Will. I have to work on these :)

Again, go check out Laura's post and vote for your favorite here and seriously consider following her if you don't, she's got a great blog!

Thanks for stopping by,
Meeka :)


  1. So pretty! You did really good and this is a perfect unicorn-y polish. Good luck! :)

  2. Looks great! I adored this movie too, and now it's also one of my all time favorite books! There's some great Schmendrick background in the novel that might help you come up with an idea. 0_~ I think this is perfect for the unicorn-as-Amalthea.

  3. Thanks so much for the comments ladies! I'm quite proud of this one :) Nothing over the top flashy but it's quite pretty I think.
    Rebecca: I haven't actually read the book which is odd considering how much I read. I should probably pick it up!
