Kisses in the rain

OK I know that is beyond sugary sweet lame.
I got a wild hair to franken tonight and I made a happy! A greyed blue with mega pink sparkling shimmer.
I let someone help me name it (not mentioning any names) and HE (hint) had a mental laps and got all sweet and gushy and the color reminded this person of a very sweet memory. So I'm keeping the name.
The pink shimmer did not show well in the pictures, oddly since it's very obvious in person.

How on Earth do you ladies that reuse bottles get the lables off? It was torture.

Oh and washing the car is not great on the cuticles or skin! :(

And then my camera went insane.

Oh look you can sort of see the pink shimmer here.

Here is the shimmer all blurry.
I am trying to franken more and get less pefectionist about it.

Any ideas on frankens?

    Awwh, both the colour and name are sweet :3

    I remember having to go around and remove the sticky labels off shelves at an old job once, we smothered them in eucalyptus oil or something, left them for a while, then came back and they scraped off pretty easy.

    I'd like to see you do a bright pink with green sparkles :D

  4. What a chic franken! Very in vogue right now. :)

    I use Goo Gone to remove sticker residue.

  8. The color is lovely and what a sweet name! Nail polish remover and a straight edge razor will remove those pesky labels. Just take a piece of felt and soak the label real good and take the razor (which has been placed in a straight edge razor holder) and scrape the label off. And if the idea of a straight edge razor freaks you out, something similar that is used for scraping will do.

    Love you on the nail board

  12. That is such a sweet name. He must've been thinking of you when he named it. I've never frankened before so I'm no help. Soak your nails in some warmed olive oil. That what a friend of mine said to do for dry cuticles and problems with your nails. She's been a beautician for many years. I love that shade. Looks really pretty on you.
