There are a lot of lovely purple holos available, but I wanted a very deep, rich purple. The best part about being a mad frankening fool is that if I can’t find a particular color I want, I can just whip one up…usually!
I used Sally Hansen Insta Dri Uptempo Plum, China Glaze GR8 gold holo, and Grape pigment from TKB Trading.
I filled an empty bottle with 3/4 GR8 gold holo, 20 drops of Uptempo Plum, and 1 tablespoon Grape pigment. Pigment is a bit stubborn when it comes to mixing it with a holo base, so it takes a lot of shaking…but once mixed well, it is fine.
It applied very smoothly, and was completely opaque in two coats.
This rich, regal purple needed an equally fancy name…so “Velvet Castle” seemed fitting! I have one more lovely holo for you, so stay tuned!
