NOTD: Garbage Pail

Hi everyone!  Today I have a franken that I made after seeing someone make one from every glitter she owns.  Mine is 1-3 drops of EVERY polish I own (excluding crackles, hence the name)! I only did it because I was bored and curious.  Truth is though, I really like it!

Inside, fluorescent lighting

Outside, sunlight

Inside, natural light

Outside, sunlight, closer look

This baby is a chameleon!  Do you see how it changes colors in the different light?  It totally adapts to it's environment.  :)  I love how when it's sunny it shows a really pretty purple, then in crappyish lighting it's a stormy, moody greyish purple.  Amazing!  Do you see that multi-colored micro glitter?  I am in love with this polish.  Seriously.  What do you guys think?  Let me know!

Thanks for looking!


  1. You used every polish you own to create this?! How many polishes do you own and how big was the bottle? Haha, I think I would need a 50ml bottle to do this.

    Did you start with a base or an empty bottle? I want to try this too! (I will link your blog to give you credit when I do!)

  2. I love it! it came out great!

    Also check it out! I nominated you for a top 10 blogger award! http://lacqueredlover.blogspot.com/2011/06/top-10-blogger-award.html
    You were also added to my new "Other Lacquered Lovers" blog page!

  3. Fun idea--it turned out nice! I wonder how big a bottle I'd need to combine even a couple drops of every polish I own. :)

  4. @A Polished Touch
    Honestly, I haven't counted. I can get back to you later today though :)
    I used an empty bottle. I only had a few drops of Seche Vite left so I cleaned it out and went to work!

  5. @Lacquered Lover THANK YOU! I just filled one out that's going to post on Monday that I tagged you in! LOL

  6. @KarenD
    That's why I did it now, it's almost full and could have held maybe MAYBE 20 more drops...

  7. This is freakin' awesome!! I love grey-- gloomy colors, and for this one to switch up colors like that! Awesome franken.

  8. @FOREVER '92It was perfect for this week too. That was the ONE day of sun we'd had for awhile, and I think it lasted about two hours.


Even though I will read every comment you leave (I love them!), please do not leave spam (such as links) or disrespectful comments. They will be deleted. I have an email, you can always send links there! Thanks everyone <3
