Guest post: Sam from Fashion Polish mesmerizes us with her #FF Toxin

Oh my.. be prepared to see the most awesomesauce duochrome shimmer topcoat franken that ever existed: Let me present you the one and only Franken Queen and one of my biggest nail crushes Sam from Fashion Polish!

Hi girls!
I don’t know about you but I’ve been stalking nail blogs for ages. There are so many blogs out there now but very few with impeccable swatches and really pic oriented like Jeanette’s. Actually she’s been one of my biggest nail crushes ever and when I finally jumped into the blogging bandwagon, I had the pleasant surprise to discover that she’s also one of the sweetest girls ever, always a nice word for everyone. Imagine how honored and thrilled I felt when she asked me to write a guest post for her!

So, here we are. If you don’t know my blog, which is very likely, if there’s one thing I love, it’s duochromes, that and frankens… And layerings too. Oh and probably anything blue… And vampy colors, apart from holos of course! Ok, I admit, I’m a nail addict ; ) I hope you’ll enjoy this post just as much as I enjoyed swatching and writting it.

It all started with a layering idea: shimmer, multichrome glitter and duochrome topcoat. But I needed a base color, the newly acquired Yves Saint Laurent Wintergreen was the perfect pick. Here it is alone:

Isn’t it the perfect teal shimmer? Formula was amazing too, 2 nice and easy coats, it applied like butter. But as “perfect” as it is, I had to spice it up a bit.
Venom is a franken I posted a few weeks ago, it’s a multichrome glitter, green/purple and a little bit of pink and gold. But I had to do something new for Jeanette so I frankened Toxin, a duochrome shimmer topcoat, small sparse particles shifting from green to purple.

Here’s the final result, first in full lighting. The green glitter and shimmer are the most obvious in this angle but if you look closely at the edges, you can see how they’re just waiting to come to life.

This is 2 coats of YSL Wintergreen and one of each Venom and Toxin:

    Would you please tell me how you made and what colors and brands are in the Toxin and Venom frankens? I love this look so much!!!

    • Hi Kimberly! :)

      Sam is a franken genius right? Sadly Sam doesn’t share her recipes for Toxin and Venom but in my nail polish dreams I wish she would sell her creations one day. A girl can dream right? :)
