Franken Friday--Crystal BALLZ

Hi Readers!  Welcome to another installment of Franken Friday.  I made this little franken awhile ago.  Several months ago I came up with a dead on dupe for China Glaze's Grape Crush and I thought geez if I can dupe Grape Crush shouldn't I be able to dupe Crystal Ball?  Well yes I was able to do it and really you can do it too!  I found a tiny red Sally Girl polish at Sally Beauty Supply a month or two ago and I felt like it was really close in color to Crystal Ball.  My wonderful friend Rhonni sends me nail swatches all the time of polishes she has I want to try to dupe.  Sure enough this little Sally Girl is a match for Crystal Ball.  All I did was add a tiny scoop or two of fine holographic glitter and BAM Crystal BALLZ was born.  The name Crystal BALLZ is courtesy of Sarah over at Chalkboard Nails.
Here it is readers what do you think?
Here's a full mani with it on
And of course I have to do some flash shots!
close up!
Then just to amp it up a bit I stamped using China Glaze Emotion and Red Angel plate RA102
What do you think readers?  Are you in love with this lovely sparkly red?  If you are remember what I said--you can make this as easily as I did!  All you need is the little Sally Girl red number 812039 (which my sources tell me is named Phat) and some ultra fine silver holographic glitter like the WetnWild Fantasy Makers glitter.

Are you a frankener readers?  If yes, what are some things you've made?  If no, why not!  It's fun and it's a lot easier than you might think.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you all have a fantastic day!
