This is not a fall color at all, let’s say this one is for the gals down under! I had a frilly Easter dress when I was a kid that was exactly this color.
I’m always on the lookout for a good, safe pink that goes with my ghostly hands, but I’m not really crazy about pink. The pales blend in with my skintone, and the beige-toned ones make me look ill. Forget about the corals!
But a cool-toned slightly blue-based pink works for me, and I got to make one out of a polish I had almost given up hope on: OPI Movin’ Out. It’s a really sheer purplish/pink duochrome with teeny red (!) microglitter. It’s just milky enough so I’m not crazy about it over darks because it can look streaky, but there is no hope of this ever being opaque.
I added some (no-name dollar store) eyeshadow to Movin’ Out and mixed them in a muffin tin. The rather hideous lavender shadow (what was I thinking?!) was a little lighter than the base color of the polish, and then I added some bluish microglitter. It was still too sheer, so I painted it over a base of bright white (OPI Alpine Snow Matte). This is three coats.
Blurred to show the sparkle, but didn’t really work out.
I think it’s still too much trouble, but I wanted to use Movin’ Out. It’s such a nice color, but why did it have to be so sheer?
