The rose mallow is a flower in a sort of dusty pink shade, just like my nails. Of course the real thing doesn’t have any glitter, but the color needed a little something. This is a shade with just a touch of gray in it, which is one of my favorite kinds to make because it’s very flattering on ghostly pale skin tones. I have to be conservative at work today, so I reluctantly took off the Moonpool that I had on yesterday.
This is 5 drops of Orly Pink Chocolate, 5 drops of white creme, and one tiny drop of black creme. Mix the white and black to get gray, then add the Orly Pink Chocolate. Kind of an odd name, I guess. It’s a medium/pink with a brown tone to it. Sort of a faded berry shade, I’d say. I’m not making it sound very appealling but it’s a nice shade and something a little different from the usual berries. Worn straight, it’s very autumnal, which is not exactly what I was aiming for today.
I can never resist adding a little glitter! This is sort of juicy looking and reminds me a little of raspberry sorbet.
