Frankening: In The Beginning
Posted by manicuremania on August 1, 2009
I’m dying to find smaller bottles for this, but I can’t find them anywhere. I think 1/2 ounce bottles are just too big, since I’ve never in my life finished a bottle of nailpolish. Not to mention that I will probably screw up and make some that are completely crappy. I’d love to get 1/4 ounce bottles, but I just can’t find them anywhere! I did find some 1/8 ounce bottles, but those…I think are just too small, plus the one site I found them on looked slightly shady.
So, the stuff I bought just for frankening:
I figured I’d get some $1 polishes to start out with and see how it goes. The three on the bottom I got just cause I liked them! Also, some supplies:
I found a ton of other types of glitters that I’d like to try, but I read a post on one of the nail blogs I read, that warned about using toxic pigments and stuff in frankens. I don’t remember which blog it was but it involved cadmium making your bones dissolve, so now I’m all freaked out about toxic ingredients. Cadmium is like an artist paint ingredient I think, so I assume any glitters are probably fine, but some of them were making me suspicious because they didn’t specifically say that they were non-toxic. Some even just said “Don’t ingest.”
Geez, glitter is going to be covering everything I own.
