I Don’t Think This Is Mars

I am really excited about the “Planetary Sampler” pigments I got from TKB Trading! I haven’t attempted any duochrome polishes yet…so these are new territory for me.

For the first one I have up, I used Wet ‘N Wild black and Travel to Mars pigment from TKB Trading. Travel to Mars has a lovely blue flash to it. Now when I think of Mars….I think red. But hey, it’s still a neat color and gives me an excuse to use another silly name!

I used the smaller, 0.25 oz sized bottles for these, since this was a test run. I filled the bottle 3/4 full with black, then added 1 teaspoon of Mars pigment.

The end result is a shimmery purple with blue flash. Just a note…my pictures don’t do these justice! I have such a hard time photographing duochromes, but hopefully the color shift is noticeable!

The Planetary Sampler came with seven lovely colors, so you can expect a bunch more of these!
