Franken - My moon and stars

I got some new solvent stable glitters the other day and decided it was time to make up some new custom polishes.  Here is the first polish I made up, which I have called 'My moon and stars'.

It has small and medium sized turquoise hexes as well as turquoise holo moons and silver stars.
The base is a dark blue jelly which is made with suspension base, a few drops of Blue 1 tint concentrate, two drops of Ferric Ferrocyanide tint concentrate and one tiny drop of black tint concentrate.

This is two coats on its own, and while it might look like the edges of the stars are sticking up, they are actually smooth beneath the glossy top coat of Ulta3 non-chip x2 and Seche Vite.

I have a whole range of other franken polishes / custom polishes in mind, I just need the time to make them and wear them.

Our Aussie supplier for suspension base (or untinted lacquer base as they call it) has recently set up a section on their website with all their franken supplies listed. The suspension base they sell is really fantastic, it suspends glitter really well, dries glossy and is big 3 free.  I'm a huge fan of it and have personally used more than a litre of the stuff for just my own mixing.  I also highly recommend their tint concentrates.  I purchased some of every colour and they make the most amazing jelly colours.


They do ship overseas, but only items that are not classed as dangerous good such as glitter and the like, so please don't ask them about shipping suspension base overseas.

  5. Would you consider, for a fee, making a bottle of that for a fellow Canberran? The polish is drop dead gorgeous.

  20. Beauty World states that only beauty trained professionals will be supplied, so I guess I can't buy from them :(

    1. I'm not trained and have no problems purchasing polishes or franken supplies. I imagine they are referring to Salon supplies rather than nail polish. Send them an email and ask info@beautyworld.com.au

  21. Wow, that's beautiful! The title sounds a bit Game of thrones-esque too. I'm looking at starting my own Aussie nail blog and experimenting with making my own polish and this has been so helpul :)
