franken feb friday... f**kers

>collapses onto keyboard

oh hello

SO today has been a fun day for me. I probably have never mentioned this before, but I can't drive. HAH

I know right it's pretty sad. The story is I went to driving school when I was 17, and I hated it, and driving in a car with a bunch of younger teens who I didn't know and a driving instructor who was mildly insensitive and pretty sexist was really shitty. Also I was dealing with a lot of ISSUES at the time. So I finished driving school and I ended up with a learner's permit but no license because I never pursued driving any further after that. 

Well I'm 20 now (my birthday is coming up in July wooo), and with some persistent nudging from family members and the realization that I don't feel as much anxiety towards driving at this point, I'm starting to actually practice driving yayyyyy. I know it's kind of a necessary skill but I've just never really been interested or motivated to drive, and it's getting to the point where it's a HUGE HASSLE.

So I'm with my mom for today to practice driving. I drove in a car for the first time in a few years, and I must say I did pretty well. I drove TWICE. (whoa) And I wasn't that scared. I'm hoping I can get my license in the next couple of months. D: 

Wish me luck heh :3

In yesterday's post I mentioned Franken Feb Fridays (that's just what I'm calling it) that I will be doing with Inky. The only problem is I'm still wearing Salon Effects, and in the interest of testing the "10 day wear" claim on the box, I refuse to remove my studly mani. 

So instead of posting a new franken, or new pics of a franken, I dug through my old pictures and found these pics of a franken I made last September. I hadn't posted this one, or even given it a name yet, so yeah that's what I'm showing y'all today.

yeah I still got it
Poor unnamed bb :'(

Lol my application was so different back then, and my nails were so much shorter! And why is there pen on my finger wtf

This is two coats of the franken, and I'm pretty sure I topped it with Seche Vite.

I don't remember exactly what's in it, but I'm pretty sure I started with about half a bottle of China Glaze Yellow Polka Dot Bikini and just started dumping stuff in it. There's some CG Prismatic glitter in there, and some blue polish of course, but I don't really know what else! It dries semi-matte because of YPDB, and I wish I had taken pics of it without top coat because it looks really cool both ways. 

Uhhhhhhhh that's all I got. 

Go check out Inky's blog! Even though she won't have her post up until late tomorrow (possibly?), her claws are so wonderful to look at, and she's the whole reason I'm doing franken posts this month!

I swear next time I'll actually have some new pics to share. In fact, I'll probably do another frankenpost before next Friday since I have quite a few frankens at this point.

Ciao for meow
