Frankenpolish attempt #1

Hi everyone!
Well my husband has decided that if he can't beat em join em :)
As many times as I've heard "Don't you already have a blue nail polish!!??" He's now joined the dark side lol
He has tried his hand at frankoning and this is the result, a very glittery jellyish purple.
I'm not sure what all went into this but I think for a first try and no knowledge of how to make a  frankenpolish its pretty nice. :)

Have you or anyone you know tried mixing up a polish?  How'd it turn out?

Franken Polish! :)

Hi everyone!
I'm so sorry about the stretch in-between posts, school is still new to me, but I'm loving it!
I got a lovely package from The Spooky Bones Company
with this pretty sparkly pink called The Speckled Heart.
Its a nice bright pink with alot of glitter in different sizes and shapes
round and some bars too which is a fav of mine!.
A really cool thing about this polish is it was a bonus with my purchase!
I have a few more pretties from Spooky Bones to share soon too so please stop back :)

Sorry about the couple days with no postings, I'm getting back into the swing of school after a very long time :).

Hunger Games 'Girl on Fire'

Hi everyone!
I'm a little late on the bandwagon but I've finally done my version of the Hunger Games manicure :)
I used China Glazes collection ( of course lol) in Electrify and Stone Cold.

Lace and corset

Hi everyone!
Here we have my first attempt at lace and a corset mani. Not a great success but not a complete fail either because I did get some practice :)
I used Sinful Colors in Ciao Bella a very pretty blue with some very nice glitter in it and then NYC in Cashmere creme. 
Used a dotting tool and a white stripping brush for the details.
I have a friend who wants a sneaker or corset mani, Kelly I promise I'll do much better on yours :)

In the attempt at one thing it turned into another lol.

Hope you all had a great day!

Halloween in spring

Hi guys!

I was in a Halloween mood today. So I did a Frankenstein spooky stitch mani with Sally Hanson 'Grass Slipper'

and a purple I couldn't find the name of ( sorry about that ) then I used some acrylic paints for the rest of the design. Hope everyone likes it. Has anyone else ever felt like Halloween or Christmas when it is totally the wrong time of year?

Facebook Page :)

I have also started a facebook page for the Charm of Nail Polish, please feel free to visit there and comment or show off your manicures, nail art, or just ask a question if you feel like it :)

Dollishpolish Zombie Flesh

Today's mani is from my first frankenpolish purchase from a month or so ago. I really like it, but am a little disappointed in the way the black glitter sticks to the sides, and no amount of shaking or leaving it upside down seemed to help. My bigger problem though is i didn't get the big bottle :)
Love the grey/green base and the smaller green and gold glitter is very even and great looking.
The photos are 2 coats of Zombie Flesh and one top coat of Seche Vite.
Has anyone else tried frankenpolish?
What did you think of it?

Summer Time Glitter gradient

It was another pretty day yesterday so I wanted another summer mani :)
This is Sinful Colors in Why Not and Courtney's Orange (had to buy that one when I saw the name! ) then Pure Ice in Beware for the glitter.

Wednesday, March 21, 2012


Woohoo I have 10 followers :) and that makes me think I'll have to start planning a givaway!
When I have 50 followers I will have a nice givaway, not sure what all will be in it, but I defiantly have a Sinful Colors Cinderella to put in it :) I'll add as I find stuff and gain followers!

Sinful Colors Sugar Sugar

Hi! For today I used Sugar Sugar  which is a great red with some glimmer to it. And then I added some flowers with China Glaze White on White, they turned pinkish, but I kinda liked the effect :) added a little Dollishpolish in 'I wanna do bad things to you' for some glitter and there you have my entry for the Purple Fairy Challenge  'Big Flowers' day tomorrow.
Hope you like it!  :)

China Glaze For Audry and Sinful Colors Olympia

Well today's mani is inspired by a beautiful weekend full of sun and a wonderful time with a group of mommies. 
Sorry I missed a couple days, but I was off having a couple days to learn and grow as a mama  :)
The For Audry is a great blue and just right with the pale green of Olympia for a fun summertime mani, which the last few days have felt like is well on its way!  :)
You may notice my nails are not all the same lenghts anymore. I decided to soak off my acrylics and let my nails relax for a bit, hopefully grow out some too :)

Pure Ice 'Kiss me here' and Essie 'shine of the times'

Today's mani has the 2 polishes listed.
The Pure ice is a nice creamy grey and the irridesent of the Essie with the gold and pink goes really nicely with it I think. I topcoated with Seche Vite to add to the shine
What's on your nails today? :)

This is one of my first attempts at nail art, I got inspired by watching a Robin Moses youtube tutorial.
Not the prettiest, but hey neither are zombies ;)


First Blog, heres to a long and happy blogging career

My first blog is just to say what I hope to do on this blog.
 I love all things zombie, and nails, I'm also a Mom, which is what I love the most.
I also like to read, not only zombie books, but they are in the top of my reading list, I also like to knit, not any good at it but I like to do it when I have the time.
I'm hoping to post mostly my nail experiments, and swatches when I find goodies, I love to try nail art, and I will on anyone I can get to hold still long enough :)
I'm hoping to go to school for managing aesthetics/nail tech as soon as I can.
I will always welcome peoples thoughts on my posts and hope to hear from as many as possible :)
