Howdy everyone! I have a confession to make that I’m sure will surprise no one: I have too many red glitter polishes. This admittedly gorgeous yet not terribly unique shade is put out by almost every nail polish company, particularly around Christmas time, and I always buy a bottle! I just can’t help myself, it looks so festive and fun. But I’ve a LOT and have to do something with some of it, because I could probably paint my entire apartment in red glitter and still have some to spare.
So I fiddled a bit with some Color Club Ruby Slippers which is just a standard red glitter- nice, but standard and added some MAC Reflects Pearl Pigment to it. As usual, I poured out a half-dollar sized puddle of nail polish with a small pea-sized scoop of pigment. I only mix enough for a single manicure since I get bored of color quickly!
I wasn’t sure what the end result would be, but it yielded a very sparkly fuschia. I’m not quite sure how it worked- I expected to have the red glitter stay red with bits of pearl shimmer, but it all mixed together nicely to create a fuschia glitter with a few specks of red here and there. You can see the original color in the bottle.
Not an earth shattering color, but it opens up some possibilities as to what I might be able to do with some of my red glitter polishes.
