ABC Challenge 'G' - Pop Beauty Grass (and Glitter!)

Hi all!

First off, I'll admit I don't like these pictures. I was literally sweating a fever out when I took these and they just don't look as good as I'd like. This cold (or whatever it is) has kicked my ass so hard that on Monday I was bedridden all day because my body ached so much I could barely move so I feel I couldn't do this awesome mani justice. 

Now for polish! I started with two coats of Pop Beauty 'Grass' (of which I don't have pictures alone because they turned out horribly), then added one coat of 'Algae Bloom', a beautiful franken by Mimi from Makeup Withdrawal! I was so excited to get some of her frankens as a bday present, I've long admired them from afar. Grass is a neon green and the perfect base for Algae Bloom's radioactive green base but it looked a little too neon for me so I added one coat of Zoya Frida to deepen the color.




Like I said, this mani was so much better in real life and could have looked better in pictures but I just wasn't up to it :\.

Unfortunately, Mimi has no plans as of yet to sell any of her pretties because she's like Gollum and wants to hoard them. I have a few more frankens that I'd like to share with you and I hope you don't hate me because they're not readily available.

Have a great day lovelies!

    1. Sadly, it was too neon for my camera! When I tried to take the pictures they came out funky and oversaturated :(

  9. Oh, Mimi....please!?! Think of what a fine and decent thing it would be to whip up some polishes for the hungry. :) You're going to work on her, right, Kat?

    The whole mani is, as usual, yowzah. I don't see any issues. It's typical Kat Super Stuff. And...the polish is I Want.

    Feel better. Your hands, though typically gorge, are very expressive. They seem to be saying, "We have a cold. Sniffle." Either that or the power of suggestion has gotten to me. I suspect it's the power of suggestion. ;)

    Night.
