As you may know, one of my favorite colors is periwinkle- real periwinkle, not the fakey lavender or wimpy light blue ones that often pass for the real thing. There are a few shades of it in the nail polish world, but it is rather underrepresented. I’m not sure if it’s because it doesn’t look good on people, or if it’s just a hard color to get right, but I’m always on the lookout for a good periwinkle.
I thought I had it with this Fyrinnae pigment, Helena and Demitrius. (Apologies if I spelled that wrong.) It’s a cornflower/periwinkle blue pigment with a gold flash. Gorgeous. And lumpy as all get out. I mixed the pigment with some clear polish and could not get the lumps out. I mixed the pigment with another brand of clear, still no luck. It’s lumpy. Dang.
What a shame! I tried two coats of Seche but…as you can see, still lumpy.
In fact, the only thing to do was cover it with glitter and a few stars. I added two coats of Pa Celestial Glitter and used a toothpick to arrange the stars on my nails. Glitter camoflauge for the win!
Too bad this was so lumpy. I do have a tiny mortar and pestle for grinding pigment, but I’m not sure I’m willing to go totally mad scientist just yet, but I do have a couple experiments in mind for this one…
