Alice Imposter- A Tale of a Franken.

Once upon a time there was a little girl named Rini, and she had a strong infatuation with nail polish. Well, Rini got into the polish game a little late, and she had missed a lot of really awesome collections, including the OPI Alice in Wonderland collection. She had a very strong lemming for the two glitter polishes in that collection, Absolutely Alice and Mad as a Hatter. Well, after seeing some swatches, Rini got an idea. She ran out and bought Blue Flash, a Milani nail polish in a similar shade of blue as Absolutely Alice. Rini added some gold Martha Stewart glitter, and magic happened. Blue Flash transformed into a mythical polish...very very similar to Absolutely Alice! In fact, Rini claimed that she had frankened a dupe! Not only did it look exactly the same, but Rini managed to make a ONE COAT dupe! She was THRILLED! So thrilled, in fact, that she wanted to share her new magic polish with all of you. Here are the pictures she has for you all:

Rini says she's sorry for how out of focus these pictures are, but her franken freaked out her camera! In any case, there is one coat of Alice Imposter, which is what this baby is called, sandwiched between Gelous nail gel, topped with a coat of Seche.

Do you like Alice Imposter? Do you have Absolutely Alice? How does this compare? Let me know! Thanks for reading! :D 


  1. WOW so similar. I have absolutely alice and love it!!

    This is identical! Love it.

    Happy holidays!!

  2. I'm not sure it's identical.. I'd have to have AA in front of me... but close enough I want the recipe! PLEEEEAAAAASSSEEE!?!?!?!?

  3. @ Selene and Theia: Really? It's that similar? YAYYYY! Thanks so much and happy holidays to you too! :D

    @ thenailaholic: It's close enough to crush my lemming! :) And the recipe is SUPER simple: A bottle of Milani Blue Flash, minus a teensy bit to give room for the glitter. Martha Stewart Glitter in 'Yellow Barite' ... add enough gold glitter til you're satisfied. I would say I added about one teaspoon of it in total :x by the way, the Martha Stewart glitters are PERFECT for frankening because they don't melt! :)

  4. This is beautiful!

  5. Thanks so much, imfeelingnail-venturous! I'm glad you like it :D
