Breakfast Club Frankens: The PrincessSo before I do anything else, I want to call to your attention to the fact that I now have 70 followers! Yaaaay! Every time that follower number creeps up I feel great! Have I ever told you guys you are all supafly? Well, you are.
P.S. That also means we are 31 followers away from a contest/giveaway. So maybe you could help me out? I would do one sooner but I am a little short on cashola for prizes right now so waiting till 101 is a better option. Anywho, if you have any tips for politely growing a blog (i.e. no link h00ring, because nobody likes a link h00r) then I am your grasshopper and I have much to learn. If you want to be my sensei or something like that. That would be cool. I would appreciate being sensei-d.
I am very happy to share with you a collection of frankens that I recently made in honor of one of my favorite movies, The Breakfast Club. I'm going to show them to you in the order I made them, starting with The Princess.
The Princess is (hopefully) obviously inspired by Claire, Molly Ringwald's character.
And her pink shirt and princessy, prom queen ways.
The Princess is a medium pink with hidden gold shimmer and some intermittent glitter. I encourage you to click on the pictures in order to see my baby in its full glory.
And here she is on my nails. Continue to biggerize the pictures or I will send angry ogres with pitchforks after you.
This is the only half-decent shot I could get inside.
Lamp. I know this isn't usually my favorite place to photograph but she turned up surprisingly well here.
Here's the full effect, just so you get the idea.
The formula is a little thick and a tiny bit lumpy, but I added one generous coat of OPI topcoat and then a thinner coat of Out the Door on top just to speed things along, and it was smooth and shiny after that.
This is probably my least favorite out of the collection. It looks like a soft pink creme from a distance, you have to look up close to see the glitter. I added as much clear as I could to try to help the glitter show through, but I ran out of bottle space.
I still like it overall and I think it's a good representation for Claire. Man... I love that movie.
Here's the recipe if you so desire:
Yes, I was too lazy to type it out again.
Sorry I don't have the amounts for most of it, I wasn't keeping track, I just added as needed.
Just to keep you interested, here is the entire army:
And that's all you're getting for now. Tune in next time for the second installment!
