Some New Polishes and a Chanel Mimosa style franken

I had another go at making a franken. I love the idea of chanel Mimosa but don't love the price. I'm sure one day I will splurge on a Chanel nail polish just to have one in my collection.
I used a little of collection 2000 lemon drop, Models own lemon and some of a yellow nail art pen which had some microshimmer in it. I also used quarter of a bottle of top coat as well to make it shiny and jelly-ish.

 I've also bought a few polishes which I thought I would share
Models own - Navy, Grace Green and silver shatter, Ruby and Millie in 610C and 600P and Bourjois Bleu asphalte

Ruby and Millie are currently £2.50 and the nail polishes seem to be the last bits left on the stand. The 610C is a creme polish and the 600P has a shimmer they are the same colour


I applied the shimmer over the blue as it is very very watery and would take 6+ coats to reach opacity which I would never ever bother with!
Next is Grace Green. As I have mentioned many times before I love Models Own polishes this is a great consistency and can cover in one coat

 Next is Models Own Navy

And finally is Models Own Silver Shatter
I do like this but it doesn't have the same silvery-ness (that is now a word because I said so) as it has in the bottle. I was a little bit disappointed. Which is a shame because as I have said I love Models Own polishes.
And finally Bourjois Bleu Asphalte

This is a lovely polish really nice and shiny with great colour and coverage. This was one coat.

Models own can be bought on the website or Boots. The polishes are £5 and the shatter is £6 and I got them on a 3 for 2 deal on Saturday.
Bourjois can be bought in most retailers I got mine from Boots for £5.99 but I got as part of 3 for 2 across beauty products.
Gosh that ended up being a long post! A couple more pics for luck XD

Stacie xoxox


  1. The Borjouis is lovely but I'm very impressed with that franken!

  2. Love the bourjouis polish too, that's a good yellow too. Mimosa is a bit too pricey for me too. I have one Chanel polish Vendetta, it's a deep purple love it! x
