Fuscia with Silver Microglitter

Another pretty simple one. I mixed a darkish neutral medium pink (think of a petunia), flat white pigment and added some navy creme to it drop by drop until I got a color that blurred the line between pink and fuscia. This is one coat. I added some silver microglitter on top. I like neutrals and I try to make my base color neutral and creamy. I can make the mix-in color warm, cool, shimmery, glittery or glossy to change the look of the polish. Then I can add a glossy topcoat, glitter, etc.  If any pigment is mixed into the color, you will get a matte nail with really intense color. It takes a couple coats of topcoat to counteract the matte-ness but the color is very rich with only one coat.


About nevertoomuchglitter

Nail artist. Wanderer. I'm a color-holic, in fact, it was my love of color that brought me to the nail art world. Well, that, and the fact I was too cheap to pay crazy Japanese prices for nail polish while living in Tokyo, so I had to start mixing my own. That's how NTMG began.
