Day 14 of 31 Day Challenge:
Frankenstine Polish
"Welcome to Bon Temps"

As I have previously reviewed, I have another True Blood themed polish by the lovely Christine of Frankenstine Polish:
Welcome to Bon Temps by Frankenstine Polish

Welcome to Bon Temps, named for the city in which True Blood takes place is a pretty, pretty red jelly polish with various types and sizes of red glitter throughout. This would be great to top over a red creme, and it's buildable on its own. I swatched both alone and over a red polish below:
I used:
Sephora by OPI Base Coat
3 coats Frankenstine Polish Welcome to Bon Temps (index/pinky)
2 coats OPI Color So Hot It Berns/2 coats Frankenstine Polish Welcome to Bon Temps (middle)
Essie Good to Go Top Coat

Accent nail:
Sephora by OPI Base Coat
China Glaze: Pelican Gray
OPI: Color So Hot It Berns
Essie Good to Go Top coat

There was a difference in results between the 2. I did notice slight curling of a couple of hexes when I used this polish over the red base, but when used alone, this wasn't an issue. As always, the glitter curling can typically be resolved with a good top coat. Here are a couple of comparison shots of Welcome to Bon Temps alone (3 coats) and over Color So Hot It Berns (2 coats/2 coats):
In the following swatch, you can better see the jelly consistency compared to over the red base:
This close up is a better view of the holo nature of some of the red bars present in this red jelly:
