I have a small obsession with indie/franken polishes that has almost consumed what little free time I have. I haven't purchased any because I know I can make some. I do, however, love coming across different lines and seeing what each polish maker comes up with.
I didn't realize how big this world really is. I got really excited when Amerikan Body Art started offering the products you need to make your own. I've found a small company ran by a cute little couple that sells pre-mixed glitters called YouMix.
I have all the things you need to make the actual polish but I haven't taken the plunge yet. I like the exclusive aspect of it. It's something no one in this area is doing. My goal is to market it for birthday parties, bridal parties, and anyone else that wants one of a kind nail polish.
Who else out there dabbles in the art of indie/frankness polishes? What companies do you order from?
