Digit-al Dozen Does It Again--Blue!!

Hi Everyone!  Welcome to September!!  We might have had about 2 hot weeks in August and that was about it for summer.  I am definitely not complaining! September is full of lots of cool things--cooler weather, the start of the squash season, and of course the fabulous Spectacular September Giveaway from the Digit-al Dozen!!  As promised we are recreating our entire year so today starts with blue.

Waaaaaaay back when all the indie craze started there was such a thing as frankening.  There still is such a thing as frankening it just sort of imploded into hey I want to make a few cool polishes for myself into hey I think a lot of people might like what I can make.

While I really enjoy frankening I haven't done it in a very long time.  It might just have something to do with how huge my stash has become LOL!

Today I'm featuring the very first franken I ever made.  I call it my dupe of Essie's Starry Starry Night.  There is just no way in hell I'm spending $300 on a bottle of nail polish and that's what I've seen it going for on ebay for crying out loud!

I duped it, at least in my eyes it's a dupe, for less than $10.  It's the first one I ever made and I named it Natural Law.  It's a stunner if you ask me
Not sure how a blue with silver glitter can be so beautiful, but it just is!
As you can see I add some accent nail stamping
The stars on my swear are from BM21 and the ring accent is PUEEN08


Let's see what blue my fellow cohorts have chosen!






Don't forget about the Spectacular September Giveaway!!
