Today I have a special franken creation. This is my answer to the new Deborah Lippmann polishes. You know the ones right? Happy Birthday in a Pink and Black base. I don't really know the names yet. Sometime ago the lovely Varnish Vixen posted about some franken dupes she had made and I decided to follow suit and create my own version of these DL polishes.
Cristina's Pink Thing is a mix of Ruby Kisses Hot Pink, China Glaze Rich and Famous, W 'n' W Party of Five Glitters, a whole bottle of NYX Carnival and some Orly clear. It's not a dead on dupe because my glitter is a bit more sparse and the Pink base is slightly darker but OMG do I freaking love this! For this mani I did Three coats of Cristina's Pink Thing.
Here is a swatch of my main base Pink. Hot Pink is your basic Barbie Pink jelly. It applies beautifully and is opaque at two coats.
I'm really happy with how it turned out. And I'm even happier about how much cheaper this alternative was... I just cannot come to terms with DL prices.
What do you guys think?
