My third Helmer was overflowing (I know, I know), and I had all this drugstore/mainstream/dupes/etc. polish that wasn't getting enough love. I wondered, could they be upcycled, rediscovered, reborn? I had long dreamed of creating my own lacquers... And thus, yet another craftsy obsession ignited my imagination.
The frankening bug has hit me hard these past few weeks since I started. I've made over forty frankens already... jeepers! Halloween seems an appropriate occasion to debut my first franken polish monster, so without further ado...
>>> Pumpkin Juice <<<
This was one of the first polishes I envisioned when I decided to start frankening. Inspired by the favored beverage of witches and wizards, and an omnipresent staple in the Great Hall of Hogwarts, my vision of "Pumpkin Juice" was complicated and contradictory, but I eventually found the right elements to make all my wild wishes come true: "Ring the Bellini" to make it juicy, "Seismic" to make it bright, "Calabaza" to make it rich, "Magic Brix" to make it earthy, "Frosting" to make it creamy, "Cheeky" to make it sweet, and "Hocus Pocus" to make it magical. Somehow, it turned out exactly how I imagined!
1/3 bottle of Sinful Colors Citrustwist "Ring the Bellini"
1/4 bottle of Sephora Formula X "Seismic"
1/4 bottle of Rainbow Honey "Calabaza"
dash of Rainbow Honey "Magic Brix"
tad of Orly "Frosting"
tad of Orly "Cheeky"
dash of Girly Bits "Hocus Pocus"

Has anyone tried a pumpkin juice recipe that they love?? I've been meaning to try one... perhaps this last month of autumn will finally be the time!
