Here’s another TiNS by request. The color is sort of like glittering hard-boiled egg yolk, a sort of dusty yellow- but not dark enough to be mustard yellow. It’s called The Sweet Beast. This one is a hard color to pull off, especially on Asian skin, but I guess TiNS decided they wanted to be the first company to corner the coveted “Glittering Egg Yolk” market.
The coverage on this was fair, it took 3 coats and two coats of Seche to even this one out.
But the look was a little stark, so I decided to do a 1970s vinyl floor tile inspired design. When I was a kid, we lived in a sort of “loaner house” while our house was being built, and the outside of the house was this sort of mustardy light yellowish color (minus the glitter, of course). There was something a little scary about the house- there was a weedy backyard and some downed power lines that I was sure would electrocute me if they had half a chance. There was some pretty groovy 70s earth tones vinyl floor tile in the house as well. It was sort of a decoration nightmare: Early 70s Budget. I think the kitchen wallpaper had stagecoaches on it. The house is long since gone and has been turned into a parking lot.
So here’s my Ode to #810 New Haven Road:
I used Konad Wine Red special polish for this, and it rocks. It’s translucent so the sparkles show through, but the coverage is great. Sorry I forgot the plate number- it’s got a lot of cool geometric designs on it.
