Playing with Pigments- Part 2
Back for more? 🙂
As I mentioned in my previous post, I received a ton of lovely pigment samples from a friend, and have been having a ball with them. Lately, I’ve really been liking shimmery white polishes, so I am going to try out one of the white pigments. This one, called “Inter Gold Sparkle Mica” is a pretty white with fine gold shimmer.
For the base, I’m going to use a combination of 2/3 clear (NYC Clear) and 1/3 white (NYC French Tip White Creme).
After adding ballz and shaking, I let the polish mix sit for a few minutes so I could accurately gauge how full the bottle was. You want make sure there’s enough room for the pigment.
I slowly added the entire packet of pigment (about 1 teaspoon full) into the mix using a paper funnel, then followed up with another bout of vigorous shaking! Now we have a soft white polish with a subtle golden shimmer.
It’s hard to capture the shimmer, but it really softens up the white and adds a touch of glimmer to the polish.
