Frankenstine Polish:
Forrest Gump Collection, Part 1

So.. I basically failed my 31 Day Challenge. To make up for it at this point, I'm bringing you a sneak peek at the latest collection by Frankenstine Polish: 
Forrest Gump Collection

First off, I have Life Is Like... Based on the memorable Forrest Gump quote "Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you're gonna get." 
Life is Like... by Frankenstine Polish

This polish, like the quote describes, contains black microglitter and brown holo microglitter in a chocolate brown to copper-y base.
Like the quote says, you never know what you're gonna get. Bam! This baby also has a subtle holo shimmer to it as shown below:
I used:
Sephora by OPI Base Coat
2 coats Frankenstine Polish Life Is Like
Essie Good to Go Top Coat

Next up from the Forrest Gump collection, I have Lt. Dan:
Lt. Dan by Frankenstine Polish

Lt. Dan is a glitter topper inspired by the character of the same name: Lt. Dan Taylor. This topper contains large gold hexes and red stars, medium green hexes and blue microglitters in a clear base. I did experience glitter curling with the larger glitters (i.e., the gold hexes and red stars), but this was fixable with a good coat of Seche Vite. Considering the color scheme of the glitters involved, I thought this topper would be perfect over Life Is Like:
Don't you think Life Is Like accentuates each aspect of this topper amazingly?!
I used:
Sephora by OPI Base Coat
2 coats Frankenstine Polish Life Is Like
2 coats Frankenstine Polish Lt. Dan
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

These polishes can be purchased (as a set) directly from Christine. Send her an email at or kik her at FrankenstinePolish, and she'll set you up with an invoice. Check out the Frankenstine Polish Facebook page and Christine's IG (@christineambrosia) for other swatches and announcements.

Keep a look out for swatches of the other polishes from this collection in Part 2!

NOTE: These polishes were sent to me for review. All thoughts and opinions are that of my own.
