It looks like the rainy season has settled in here in Tokyo…it’s either steaming hot with drizzle, or freezing cold. But I guess it wouldn’t be Asia without a little rain. Today is kind of a gloomy Monday, so I came up with a sort of putty gray/purple color.
This is Fyrinnae’s Glass Coffin pigment mixed with clear nail polish. (And no, they’re not paying me for this- I’ve been going through my pigment stash lately and doing some experimenting!) It’s a silvery gray shimmer with a hint of lavender in the mix. Most interesting is the tiny red micromicro glitter, but it didn’t show up on the nail.
It yielded a sort of very slightly speckled putty color. The finish was smooth- this is 2 coats. It sort of reminds me of tweed suits and actually would be a much better fall color than summer, actually!
So it got the Konad treatment with sort of a damask pattern that reminds me of old wallpaper. Confession: I flubbed on one nail, so I painted a long “v” french tip that extended all the way across the nail vertically. I like it- reminds me of old Art Deco doorways. I’m sure I didn’t invent it, but I like the look of this extended tip a lot and it covers up my boo-boo, so it’s a double win!
Finished off with a coat of Seche.
