Happy Friday!

Good evening, my darling readers!  I just have a quick post today.  I wanted to share a franken that I mixed together a few months ago.  I suggested to Zoya on their facebook page that they create a polish in honor of Etta James when she passed away, and one of Zoya's followers asked me how I envisioned Etta's namesake.  I thought about it for a little bit, and I decided I wanted her to be a steely bluple with a hint of sparkle, something strong, but not too flashy.  Zoya never did acknowledge my suggestion, and I decided that I was going to create it.  I mixed mica and shimmer powders into a bottle of clear L.A. Colors nail polish I had around the house.  This is what I came up with:

Inside
 Left to right: Finger Paints Comet's Collar (partial), Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Gunmetal, Etta Franken, Zoya Nephratiti, and Zoya Yara (partial)

Outside
Left to Right: Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Gunmetal, Etta Franken, Zoya Nephratiti, and Zoya Yara

This was my first frankening experience, and I absolutely love this colour with a passion.  I really wish I had Zoya's Tao and Marina to swatch this against!  I could not find my colour spoons to take a picture of the three of them together which means they will probably turn up tomorrow!  Ha!

I hope you enjoy your Friday evening and the weekend!  Anything fun planned?  Ciao for now!
