Glitter franken polish swatches from Lush Lacquer

After lusting for ages over all of the amazing glitter franken-polishes on offer in the US, I decided to take the plunge and place a little Lush Lacquer order on Etsy in time for Christmas.  I'm sure you've heard of franken polishes before, but if not it means home-made polishes created by either mixing two different polishes together or adding glitter to a nail polish.  Sadly it's not as easy as adding your own glitter to an old clear polish, I've looked into it and you need a special type of glitter and a special type of polishes, so I gave up on that and decided to just buy some!

I ordered some of the Lush Lacquer Christmas themed polishes as well as some of their regular range in mini 5ml sizes and got 8 polishes for around £30 with the postage.  Kind of pricey for the size, but they're amazing glitters and not like anything you can normally get in the shops.







Aren't they stunners?  Although I cheekily did a swatch of each of these for the blog, I actually gave most of these as Christmas presents to my two besties.  They won't be surprised about the sneaky swatching!  I kept ho ho holidays and mr bubble for me.  

Here's ho ho holidays over a shimmery silver polish - sorry my hands are covered in nail oil here.  I wore mr bubble over a pale blue polish but stupidly forgot to take a snap so I'll have to show you that one another time.  


Are you tempted to try franken polishes?
