Do you know the feeling when you see something so very beautiful online and realise you can't have it because it isn't sold in your country? Well, that happens to me a lot.
Last december, I started dreaming about China Glaze - Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away nailpolish called Trap-eze.
So, I ordered it online in an online shop called nailetc and it was supposed to come from the USA. I ordered it mid-December an realised in January that it's been a month and that I haven't received my package. So I wrote to the store and they were so kind that they sent the package one more time. Then, mid-February... I was still waiting in vain. The staff at nailetc was very nice, they answered my emails promptly and in the end, they refunded my money. I still have no idea what has happened to my nailpolish.
You can probably guess how disappointed I was when I didn't receive what I wanted, but finally, I said "to hell with it" and decided to make my first frankenpolish.
Those are polishes that you mix together in order to get a new one. I bought a cheap Joy nailpolish at Müller (for less than 1 €) and Essence Circus Confetti. I poured almost half of the Joy nailpolish away and poured some Essence one in. I tried to mix it a bit, but it didn't really work, the polishes mixed only at the top, but it doesn't really matter. If I'll run out of glitter I can always add more Circus Confetti.
This is how the new frankenpolish looks like on my nails. Pretty darn close to the original, wouldn't you say?
