Day 12 of 31 Day Challenge:
Frankenstine Polish
"Shift Change at Merlotte's

So depending on how you look at it, this post is either really late or really early. Either way, I just decided to call this Day 12. I had this idea since I received this polish from Christine, and I finally had a chance to try it using:
Shift Change at Merlotte's by Frankenstine Polish

Christine did it again with this True Blood inspired glitter topper. Shift Change at Merlotte's, inspired by the restaurant uniforms that Sookie wore in the ever so popular TV series, contains a combination of green and white micro glitters, white hexes, and mini holo green bar glitters! When deciding what base colors to use this over, I figured what better way to let these colors stand out than dark shades; thus:
I used:
Sephora by OPI Base Coat
2 coats OPI Black Onyx (index/pinky) - BO
2 coats theBalm/Hot Ticket The Grass Is(n't) Always Greener (middle) - GIAG
2 coats Frankenstine Polish Shift Change at Merlotte's 
Essie Good to Go Top Coat

While I was photographing different aspects of this polish, I thought I'd try out some close ups:
                   Over Black Onyx              Over The Grass Is(n't Always Greener)

Here's a comparison of Shift Change at Merlotte's over the 2 colors 
(L: GIAG, R: BO)

Like the other Frankensine Polishes that I have, this one did not disappoint. One coat of this glitter topper was enough to cover the whole nail, but I added an additional coat for evenness. I didn't experience curling with the large, white hexes like I would typically expect with larger glitters so that's definitely a plus. 

You can purchase this polish from Christine directly. Just email her at, and she'll set you up with an invoice. Check out the Frankenstine Polish Facebook page and follow Christine on Instagram for other swatches of this polish and others that this line has to offer.

NOTE: This polish was sent to me for review. All thoughts and opinions are that of my own.
