Blue Shimmer Franken

Hiya Readers
I love making frankens! But usually they turn out like sticky tar balls in the ugliest colors. This time, the formula seemed to turn out great!
However, I'm not sure about the color.
It sure has depth, every time I look at my fingers I see a different color, which is always captivating (Warning: Do not drive and stare at your nails).
I combined all of my duoshimmers along with Orly 'Dazzle' and Sally Hansen 'Silver Lining'. I think I was expecting a deep shimmery gorgeousness. Kind of turned into a blue Dazzle.
Thinking about adding maybe a creme like OPI 'Russian Navy' to add depth. Not sure how that will look.
Like blurple steel. Awesome color, but I just don't know if I like it on my nails. I'm sure there are lots of people out there who would love this, just not my type of shimmer that I love. As for the name: I would love to name all of my frankens something related to the book/movie/phenomenon that is The Monster of Frankenstein.
Here it is, with all the colors it takes to make them! Seemed like a great idea, but I expected something a little different. What do you think? Names? I'm thinking
"Monster of Frankenstein"
"Blurple Monster"
"It's Alive!"
"Friend, Good"
"Mad Scientist"
"Blurple Shelley"
"Lightning of Life"

    jaljen - thanks. Nice name

    Aurora's Nails - I agree, it's a great name. And thanks for reminding me fall is coming up, my favorite season!

    Starlight - Thanks so much for the compliment. I put it on my nail expecting the usual tragedy and I just thought "I made this?"

    Jackie S - Thanks, it seems to me to be a pretty original blue!
