Even though she had announced it a while ago, I'm still super-sad that Amy at I'm Feeling Nailventurous is no longer making her awesome creations. I had so many of them on my "Want" list. But she has made the decision for herself and her well-being, and I am really glad she was able to make that difficult choice...nail polish is not worth anyone's happiness. She's such an awesome blogger, I'm glad she's still swatching away!!
So I'm trying frankening dupes of my fave polishes on my wishlist. I have already taken a stab at making a polish similar to Nailventurous's "Granite" in THIS POST. Here's how it came out (with different undies):
I liked it a lot, but I wanted to add extra glitters to make it look more like the original "Granite".
I didn't want to go too crazy, so I just added small black glitter along with some white matte glitters for more texture. Here's what I got:
This looks more like stone! It looks lumpy, but it's totally glass-smooth! This is 2 coats over China Glaze "White on White". Not a dupe, but it is truly a franken "inspired by" Granite. I think it came out beautifully, which is interesting considering it's supposed to look like rocks! :-)
