Rebecca Likes Cupcakes!

Hello everyone from Rebecca's world of studying! I've spent the last few days writing a paper and studying and I decided to take a break from studying to write a little post!

I've been meaning to post about this for a while, actually. Remember a few months ago I made my own franken? I posted about it here. I've since perfected the formula and I want to show it to you again!


Behold my franken, Rebecca Likes Cupcakes.
(A lovely reader/fellow blogger named it for me! The name is perfect because it is an ode to my blog, I do like cupcakes, and its initials are also my initials! It's perfect. Thank you Kim!)


My new formula ups the opacity of the polish a little, and adds a lot more glitter! It is just so squishy and cute.
I've actually made over 20 bottles of this sucker now for friends and fellow bloggers!
Here are some posts from other bloggers who love my polish:
Whitney @ We're Making History
Chelsea @ Pretty and Polished (also on her Flikr)
Natalie @ heartNAT
Destany @ Confessions of a Sarcastic Mom
Amy @ I'm Feeling Nail-Venturous 

(There could be more but this is all I can think of right now! If you have posted my franken, send me the link and I will link it here!)


This special franken bottle was made for me by Caroline at Shadow's Nail Art. It pretty much sums me up, don't you think? I adore it!

My swatches here are 3 coats alone, but you can also layer it over a light purple or a white for a more opaque look.


My franken doesn't always come in the same bottle, but they are always made with a cute cupcake sticker.

Dying to get your hands on a bottle of this? Keep your eyes open in the next few days and you might be pleasantly surprised... ;)

  6. How exciting! I would love to snatch up a bottle of this. It reminds me of Deborah Lippman's Glitter in the Air....only better. I'm not a blue fan so the base of this is much more appealing to me. Great job! :)

  18. This looks absolutely delibious! Kind of like one of those things I'd just have to taste! Like those Lush soaps.. you know they're not going to taste as good as they smell, but you can't help giving it a lick anyway... or maybe that's just me! Anyway! Great job and I LOVE the bottles.
