Erica's Nails & More February Nail Art Challenge! Day 3: Glitter Loaded Nails!

Hello everyone and welcome to Day 3 of Erica's Nails & More February Nail Art Challenge!

I like to franken in my spare time :) Mostly I make polish for friends as gifts with names from our inside jokes... or I add them to swaps when I don't have any cool extras or candy around. I thought glitter loaded nails would be the perfect opportunity to show you guys one of my glittery frankens!

I have an obsession with Tolkien. Lord of the Rings is one of my favourite adventure stories in the whole world. Most of the polishes I make for myself, I name after Tolkien related things. I was originally going to name this one "Courage For Our Friends". Eowyn says this is Merry before the great battle for Middle Earth when arriving at Pelonnor Fields. Neither are even supposed to be fighting in this war but both end up playing important roles in the battle. I'm still a little unsure of its name but I will stick with it for now.

I used a clear base so I could layer it and:
Micro squares of light pink and copper
Medium bright pink, light pink, magenta, apricot squares & gold hexes
Larger matte pink & purple squares
I am thinking of adding some gold shimmer to it to spice it up some more!

This polish is my untried considering I just made it ;)

What do you think of my franken?!
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check out the other awesome nail art from the challenge!!


  1. OMG I am in LOVE with your franken! So pretty!! And I love LOTR too!

    1. Thank you!! I love making little LOTR polishes! So fun! Im happy someone else loves LOTR too :D

  2. GORGEOUS polish. The fact that it's named after LoTR is even better! I'd love a Gandalf the Grey and Gandalf the White polish.

  3. This is amazing!! You did a super job with your franken!

  4. This is ah-may-zing!!! I need that polish in my life! I'm not a big Lord of the Rings fan (hopefully I don't get shot for saying that, lol!), I had such a hard time getting into the books so I never read them, and I didn't really enjoy the movies (I only watched them cause it was for a school trip ;) ). HOWever! This polish rocks my world, and that's all that matters :D

  5. Absolutely gorgeous - I NEED this glitter!!! :)
