A closer look: the greens stash XI - and a franken

You are not going to believe me, but we're really closing in on the end of the greens. I know... You thought it wouldn never end, right? This is not the last post, but almost. I have only one more to post after this one. are you ready for the leftover bits and pieces?

The miscellaneous, not fitting into any other groups: Sephora by OPI Leaf Him at the altar, Creative Okie Dokie Artichokie, Sephora by OPI Absinthe Makes the Heart, Misa The Grass is Greener On My Side.

And here are the really dubious ones: the frankens.

Unnamed franken made by yours truly. Looks silver, but actually has light green tinted base. Unnamed franken by Amanda Frankenpolish, received in a swap. Crème de Menthe frankendupe by Monica of Wixology, this one is said to be really spot on the original! And last, a teal green franken by myself, Shady Spruce. It is half blue, half green, and very jelly-ish.

The recipe for my teal green franken is one half clear, a fourth Misa On the Edge, and a fourth BB Couture Poison Ivy. At three coats you can still see some visible nail line, so if you don't like that, just use less clear.

Swedish word of the night:
gran -noun spruce
Because we have 'em here in Sweden.
