One of Michelle's (from All Lacquered Up) wishes this year was for an emerald green holo. I found a gorgeous forest green holo on Konad-licious the other day (here), and absolutely HAD to have one, so I decided I'd try frankening one. I've only made one or two other frankens that were nothing special, so I didn't have very high hopes for this one...
But holy gooses, it came out SO AWESOME! I was able to capture some of the rainbows in this, but not as well as I'd liked. Imagine this looking a lot like a green version of DS Glamour. It's kind of in between a smooth (Nfu-Oh) holo and a scattered holo (like DS Extravagance).
And of course, the recipe! I think I used about 1/3 Nfu-Oh 62 (though I think any Nfu-Oh holo would work) and 2/3 Nfu-Oh 569 (Nars Zulu close dupe). Then I added just a couple drops of China Glaze Calypso Blue (you can use any dark blue jelly) to even out the green and give it that perfect emerald hue.
I'm pretty sure the key to making darker holo frankens is to use jelly polishes instead of cremes. I only made a tiny bottle of this, and I'm wishing I made more. I might actually buy more Nfu-Oh's just to make more of this one!
Now I need your help in naming this beauty! It deserves a freaking cool name, but I haven't been able to come up with one yet... help me out!
So what do you think of this green holo? Have you frankened any awesome brightly colored holos? What other bright holos would you like to see?
