Futuristic Fuschia

Purple week rolls on! Here’s a warm purple that’s headed into the fuschia territory but is still purple. This is a warm shade, so it is made with more red than blue.

This was made with ten drops crème red (Essie Jelly Apple) and five drops of Misa Pour Me Something Tall And Strong, a medium slightly neon blue. If I had done half and half with those two colors, I would have got a sort of grape-soda purple, more towards the cool side. But for this one, I wanted a warm purple.


This color was pretty by itself, but I wanted to add some blingtacularity to it. I combined large chunky silver glitter and fine silver glitter with some clear topcoat to make a blindingly shiny manicure.

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.

    Amber- Glitter will make polish dry faster, since there’s less polish in it. Have fun with the glitter!
