TBN Ultramarine blue

Today I have a frankenpolish that I made up ages ago and never got around to posting.

I made this up using a bottle of white polish from Totally Beautiful Nails (a cheap Aussie brand) and then added about a teaspoon of Ultramarine Blue pigment that I got from TBK Trading.  It made a a strong creamy bright blue polish.  A really simple frankenpolish that anyone could do.

Below shows the first time I swatched this.  This was two coats without a top coat.  As you can see, there were still tiny granules of pigment left on the nail which made it look slightly rough.  A nice layer of Seche Vite covered that right up, as you can see in the top picture.


  1. This is gorgeous! I love how bright it is.

  2. Oh my word!!! What a gorgeous colour, I am so in love with this shade. Jealous. xx

  3. I'm on the lookout for a perfect blue, and this comes damn close!
