Wet n' Wild Night Owl Coloricon polish came out recently as a limited edition part of the insomnia collection. I got it for $2.99 and honestly was disappointed in it. Although the colour is very halloween suitable- a dark almost black burgundy-plum, that sometimes looks like dried blood- it just didn't work well. To get it completely even it really needs three coats, it drags and it goes on unevenly, it also dries a strange half-matte finish as well (thank goodness for top coats). It chipped fairly quickly as well even with my top and base coat, it only lasted about three days (with Gelous base coat I usually get a minimum of four). So unless you love the colour, I don't recommend it it didn't live up to Black Fog's formula unfortunately.

However, I was in Zellars today and they had just put out the Wet n' Wild Fantasy Makers display out, a Halloween display made for wacky costume make-up and I found a little gem.

So I made a Franken because I was so enthralled with this little beauty! For those of you who don't know a Franken stands for a nail polish colour of effect you've made yourself- it stands for Frankenpolish. I took Night Owl and made it into my new polish which I've names Owl Eyes.
Gorgeous right? I am loving it! I decided to name it Owl Eyes because the original was Night Owl and the sparkles kind of look like eyes in the dark. Silly, and overly dramatic but that's just the type of person I am :D. I only did one nail as I'm about to do my nails in Sephora Sample Sale (an awesome Candy Apple red) for Thanksgiving this weekend, but I'm really pleased with the colour now, so I can put up with the not so great formula.
