Today is the first Franken-cense Friday here on my blog. Franken-cense is the name for my indie polish brand. I mostly just dabble, but occasionally sell or gift, and love to share swatches.
Today I have Maku'e Ao, meaning purple illumination in Hawaiian. Maku'e Ao is a greyish-purple holographic polish with gold/orange/green flakies, and a slight duochrome. Maku'e is opaque in 2-3 coats depending on your application style, but also looks great layered.
In the following swatches I used three thin coats on all my nails except my ring finger, in which I layered one coat of Maku'e Ao over a black creme.
|L to R- Yellow light with flash, Under Fluorescent Light, Yellow Light no flash|
|Inside, no flash|
PSA- I know these pictures look like I'm wearing different polishes, but I assure you they are all pictures of Maku'e Ao.

So, what do you guys think? Do you love Maku'e Ao as much as I do? Let me know below in the comments, and don't forget to hit follow to see more of my creations!
