My First Franken!

I wanted to do something a little different, and I thought I'd try making my own color in an attempt to replicate the Chanel Jade shade. Here's what I used and how it came out!

 

What I used:
1. Rimmel Wear 10 w/ Lycra in Insolence (#414)
2. Essie Mint Candy Apple
3. Orly Enchanted Forest
4. Seche Vite Top Coat (which I didn't take a picture of until AFTER I made the color. Sheesh.)

How did it come out?

 

It's got a little shimmery flash that I love, and it's the closest I've found to Chanel Jade. What do you guys think? Do you like it? Have any recommendations on how I can get it closer? Let me know!

Love,
JP

I don't know how close it is without seeing the two together but it is a pretty mint green!

Kirsten - ALU has a good swatch: http://www.alllacqueredup.com/2009/09/chanel-jade-nail-collection-swatches.html

Mine is a little bit creamier (is that a good descriptive word in this scenario? Hm. :)

I can't say for sure how clost you are to Chanel's jade but your franken is definitely pretty :)
I'd never buy Jade anyways, I have a couple Chanels and hate them.

I've never seen the jade in real life, it's one of the prettiest greens I've seen in swatches though. I really like your franken, it looks great!

I nominated you for an award on my blog, go check it out!
