My First Nail Polish Franken

For those not familiar with nail polish blog vernacular, here's a crash course.

VNL- visibile nail line (specifically in reference to a polish that is sheer enough you can see the white part of your nails)

Lemming- A term for a polish you've been wanting for a long time.

Franken- A mix of two or more polishes, glitters etc. Basically taking existing polish and mixing them together to come up with a different color.

Franken two nail polishes I was never a big fan of is exactly what I did.  Yodel Me On My Cell and William Tell Me About OPI are both from last years Swiss collection.  Yodel Me On My Cell is a shimmery medium blue with green undertones.  It's pretty but not really my cup of tea.  William Tell Me About OPI is a dark plummy creme color that looks black unless in direct sunlight. And.... not that it really matters but they both have pretty stupid names!

Sorry it's a bit messy, I was in a hurry. But holy cow! So pretty! Just a few drops of WTMAO made YMOMC (see how stupid these names are?) so much more intense and gorgeous!  I'm so glad that I'll finally be using up two polishes that would otherwise be gathering dust. What do you think? I'm tempted to name my creation but I'm not sure what. Any ideas? Certainly just about anything would be better than the names of its parents!
