Red Green Color Shift Franken #1

I'm on the color shift pigment bandwagon and this is attempt number one.

I made a few at a time so I am not 100% what formula this is. It is either Avon Vintage Vamp or Mode Mulberry, some clear and a few tiny scoopfuls of the red/ green pigment from More Nail Polish. The above photos are taken in the shade with no flash. The photos below are in sunlight with a flash.

It does have a color shift.....but only in the right light and if I stick my tongue out at the right time while hopping on one leg.

I'm still playing, more test results later!


  1. Reminds of an unripe apple for some reason! I love this - definitely a creative way of using color shifting pigments instead of just having it clear and on top of a base. Good job! Hope you find a way that works.

  2. Thanks Suki! I do have a topcoat version coming tmrw.

  3. Great franken! I'm waiting for my powders to come in. I read somewhere (can't remember where) that using a jelly base helps the pigment shine through. Hope that helps! I can't wait to see what else you come up with! :)

  4. That's an amazing & beautiufl polish. You need to make this & sell it!

  5. Thanks All the Pretty POlish for that tip, will stick to jellies form now on.

    Thanks Sarah!

    Lucy. Thanks! The topcoat is much nicer tho.


Thanks so much for commenting! I read each and every one, even if I am slow to respond sometimes!
