Franken with TKB 'Travel to Neptune'

30th Sep UPDATE: I got a tutorial request for this mani, so I included an IG tutorial at the end of this post.

It doesn't look like I can come up with anything worthwhile posting any time soon, so I decided to simply slap on my last of the franken I made from TKB Trading 'Travel to' pigments. This is the 7th and the last post of TKB 'Travel to' pigment franken series. Here are the links to previous posts:

I'm showing you 'Travel to Neptune' franken today. TKB's description says this pigment 'shifts from turquoise to blue to violet'. All my other 'Travel to' frankens are simply a mixture of suspension base plus 2 tiny scoops of Travel to pigment, but this time I added some black polishes too see how it goes. The swatch is one coat over one-coat black I made previously.

Unfortunately, I can't see the colour shift on this franken very well. It could be because I mixed with some black polishes in an effort to be able to use on its own, rather than layering over black. The blue colour is pretty and striking none the less.

After I took some photos on it's own, I made a galaxy mani out of it. When I feel uninspired, galaxy mani is good because it's easy to create and yet effective.

This concludes my Travel-to franken series. My first post was back in March. Geez, it took that long!?

作り方はこれだけ今までとは少し変えました。Suspension baseをボトル半分注ぎ、ピグメントをお手製ストローの先っちょに乗せて2杯投入してから黒のポリッシュを適量追加(分量失念)。カラーシフトはこんな感じ。

Humm.. where's the colour shift?? I can only slightly see the violet

Final product, galaxy mani!

久々の銀河ネイル。かな~り初期のころにやって以来でした。まず三角スポンジに白を取ってポンポンと乗せ、その上に黄色、コーラル、紫、オレンジ(少々)を乗せていき、最後にCiate Party Shoesをひと塗り。

Sponged white, yellow, coral, purple, and a bit of orange, then finished off with Ciate Party Shoes

手に持っているのがCiate Part Shoes。グリッタートッパーです。

Very quick mani, but I like the effect


というわけでめでたくTravel toフランケンシリーズの全Swatch終了!\(^o^)/ ということはDance LegendのGalaxyシリーズ、ようやく解禁できます(゚∀゚) てか、このネイルしてたときに右手には既にGalaxy塗ってたんだけどねw
