Doctor Who Franken Collection Swatches and Recipes - Part Three

New Who I

(Eek! I lost most of this post and had to redo it.)

All swatches are over Gelous and topped with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri topcoat.  The first two pictures in each set are taken in a lightbox, the last is under a lamp. Click to enlarge pictures. 

I used 0.5 fl. oz. bottles to mix these. I recommend adding the most abundant color or clear (if it's used) last to prevent overfilling.

Bitchy Trampoline- cream jelly with hidden pink and orange shimmer, 3 coats

under lamp, enlarge to see shimmer

30 drops  (1 part) Sally Hansen Pale Lilac Opal
30 drops (1 part) Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Peach Daiquiri 
60 drops (2 parts) Finger Paints Warm He-art-ed
60 drops (2 parts) Orly Lemonade (China Glaze Lemon Fizz dupe)
60 drops (2 parts) Maybelline Sheer Shining Star
180 drops (6 parts) clear
240 drops (8 parts) Confetti White Wedding

Odd Ood- grey leaning taupe jelly with red glitter, 3 coats

1/2 bottle Maybelline Sheer Success (most sheer peachy pinks should work)

I would not call this a frost. There are not visible brushstrokes, though some may be apparent in the macro shots.

100 drops Revlon Hot for Chocolate
80 drops Jordana Mellow Yellow
70 drops Wet 'n' Wild Black Creme
40 drops Wet 'n' Wild Metallica
30 drops Chameleon Blue Frost  (this is a good way to get rid of frosts)
20 drops Maybelline Gold Star
fill with white ( I used both Confetti White Wedding and Wet 'n' Wild French White)

Thanks for looking.

  1. Yay! They are fabulous!

    Bad Wolf is exactly the color I imagined - and now I have a visual every time I see a Dr. Who Bad Wolf episode.
