So I have been wanting the Illamasqua- Load nail polish for a while now, and I figured it wouldn't be too hard to franken one, it's just a creamy off-white. And it was pretty easy. I used a 6ml empty bottle I had, filled it 1/4 full of clear ( I would use less clear next time, it was a bit streaky.)
Added another 1/4 of shimmery white, and filled it almost full of white. There isn't any shimmer in Load, but i wanted to add my own touch. It doesn't show up on the nails at all, but it adds a bit of texture. I added about 10 drops or so of China Glaze- Lemon Fizz for the yellow part of the color, and here you have it:

These pictures are 4 coats of my dupe, I should have added less clear. I had to cut my nails a bit because one broke 2 weeks ago, so i just put a gel nail on, and then the one next to it broke yesterday and I was like ugh I should probably just cut them.
Sorry for the totally dreadful pictures today, work in progress!
What do you think of this ruffian style manicure? I would love to do something like this with gold, and purple as the main color. Do you ever franken a polish you can't get?
