2-coats swatched over American Apparel Cameo Blue
Here's my first attempt seen here in the afternoon sun. Cameo Blue looks most color accurate here.
Here's the second attempt photographed under artificial light. This is 1-coat, no top coat.

How I mixed it?
All frankening supplies can be found on TKBTrading.com. It's a supplier for people interested in making their own soaps, makeup, fragrances and nail polish. It's open to the public, anyone can order. I bought the glitters that make up Connect the Dots, the black/white hexes and string glitter. Yes, when it was all said and done the initial start up was quite costly.
Basic Frankening Supplies:
- Glitter Suspension Base
- Empty Nail Polish Bottles
- Steel plated ball bearings to mix the polish
- Patience and skill.
I know custom frankening might not be your thing. Please below for similar colors from other indie sellers:
- Sticks n Stones by Cover Band
- Dots n Stripes by SparklesbyJulie
- Spotty Dottie Light by All That Glitters
- Spotty Dottie Dark by All That Glitters
- Valentino by Pretty & Polished
Some of these might be out of stock but are easier to obtain than a Lynnderella.
Again, it was not my intention to infringe on Lynnderella's original creation. I'm not going to sell these as Connect the Dots dupes. This was a challenge to myself to see if I could franken and dupe Connect the Dots in which I had a snowballs chance in hell of ever getting!
I will have a more in-depth post about frankening and how to create a glitter mix. Let me know if you'd like it in video format or not.
Thanks for reading!
