I posted on twitter yesterday that I made a franken polish and the lovely Miss Theodora from redhairandblacknailpolish asked to see some pictures. I had some left over miss sport clear polish that I never use anymore. It was nearly empty so I added in some No7 clear polish (this polish is awful! Bubbles and never dries. Grrr I am so glad I never pay full price for these polishes). I mixed in a really old body dust powder that I got free in a magazine about 10 years ago? I never used it but it looked so pretty in the bottle so it seemed a shame to throw it out.
I didn’t measure any of these quantities mainly because I thought it would be a complete failure haha. That’s confidence for you right there!
Anyway, for these swatches I used my usual stargazer base coat. On my index finger I just used Mr T..(ea) time, on my middle finger I have 2 coats of Stargzer black, on my ring finger I have 2 coats of No7 white and lastly on my pinky finger I have 2 coats of Catrice I wear my sun glasses at night. As ye can tell (probably better than I can) It is a gold polish with tiny little glitters inside. It is sheer. I included some pictures of it on my naked-ish nail (I used a base coat). The first lot of pictures are without a top coat. The name stems from the legendary Mr T during his A-Team years. The kind of tarnished gold look of the polish reminded me of his chains and because it reminds me of teabag adverts so I combined the two....yeh I may have to rethink it haha.
Here are a lot of swatches:

|Another in the sun (it's rare in Ireland so I made the most of it haha)|
|Last one without a top coat.|
Are ye sick of it yet? Well here are some more with a topcoat!!!
So that's them all. I prefer it over Catrice IWMSAN. The Stargazer looks bumpy because the bottle is soooo old! I added so much nail varnish remover to ungloopify ( I know it's not a word but it works) it. It'll do me because I really don't want to throw it away. You can't buy them here anymore. I emailed them to ask but they never replied to little old me *sad face*. I really do not like it over white but I thought it would be a good way to show its true golden base.
What do ye all think of Mr T..(ea)time? Please be honest so I don't embarrass myself further by trying to do more haha. Ye can be as detailed as ye want :)
