Franken Sunken Treasure

I found myself in a common situation in the nail polish world recently. An indie nail polish seller put LE bottles of nail polish on their etsy site, and I missed out on this amazing bottle of polish I really liked. This polish was called Super Moon, by See Sarah Swatch/Two Birds One Stone. Isn't gorgeous?!? Well, I messaged Sarah, and asked if she'd be making more, and the answer was sadly no. Then....I pouted. I wanted to try and make my own, but I did not have the same type and color of glitters. I really wanted a polish like that though, so I took a stab at it. It doesn't look much like Super Moon, but it did cease my pouting. I'm pleased with my result. I'm calling this one Sunken Treasure. I do owe Sarah a thanks for inspiration though, if it weren't for Super Moon I never would of come up with this.

Sunken Treasure


Sunken Treasure is a bright blue jelly with silver holographic glitters, copper glitters, and gold/copper micro glitters.

This was actually fairly easy to make. I just used clear, Revlon Royal, Icing Frost Yourself, Sephora by OPI Traffic Stopper Copper, Jordana Copper Blaze, and Tropez Sassy. I do not recall the exact measurements, but it's a majority clear and glitter with a little of Revlon Royal mixed in. I think this looks cool! My only disappointment is it doesn't really sparkle like Super Moon, but that's ok. I love a jelly glitter, and it's awesome how the glitters from previous layers peak through the base. It reminds me of sunken treasure hidden at the bottom of the ocean. It's definitely a cool polish. It may not be Super Moon, but it's special in its own right. 

Happy Tuesday!

  13. Haha, probably not. I've made handful of frankens and majority of them are complete failure. I got lucky this time. Thanks!
