Frankenstine Polish
Forrest Gump Collection, Part 2

I give you Part 2 of swatches from the Forrest Gump collection by Frankenstine Polish. Let's start with:
Bubba Gump Shrimp by Frankenstine Polish

Bubba Gump Shrimp, inspired by the seafood restaurant in the film, is a glitter combo of medium blue hexes, small red hexes, blue and red microglitter, and white bar glitter in a light pink base that has a subtle gold shimmer. To illustrate the versatility of this polish, I've swatched it both alone and over a coral base (OPI I Eat Maine-ly Lobster):
I used:
Sephora by OPI Base Coat
2 coats OPI I Eat Maine-ly Lobster
     + 2 coats Frankenstine Polish Bubba Gump Shrimp (index/pinky)
4 coats Frankenstine Polish Bubba Gump Shrimp (middle/ring)
Essie Good to Go Top Coat

Here are a couple of close up shots to show you the difference between the polish alone and over the OPI base:
Here, you can see the subtle golden shimmer this polish has:
Next up from this collection is:
Jen-nay by Frankenstine Polish

Jen-nay, named after Forrest's childhood friend, is a glitter topper containing small pink holo glitter, yellow flower glitters, and blue-green/teal-ish holo bar glitters in a clear base. I love the girly-ness that is this polish, and I decided to layer this over Essie Play Date:
I used:
Sephora by OPI Base Coat
2 coats Essie Play Date
2 coats Frankenstine Polish Jen-nay
Seche Vite Top Coat

There was some curling with the flower glitters, but the usual fix (a good coat of Seche Vite) worked fine.
Check out the holo goodness in this glitter topper!
Last but not least in this collection, I bring you:
Forrest Gump by Frankenstine Polish

Forrest Gump, whose inspiration is self-explanatory, is a combination of medium periwinkle and navy blue hexes, medium and small white squares, and blue microglitters in a color shift base (to blue). The following swatches shows Forrest Gump over OPI Black Onyx and alone:
I used:
Sephora by OPI Base Coat
2 coats OPI Black Onyx/2 coats Frankenstine Polish Forrest Gump (index/pinky)
4 coats Frankenstine Polish Forrest Gump (middle/ring)
Essie Good to Go Top Coat
