I hope everyone isn’t getting tired of seeing my iridescent pigments yet! Today I’ve given the iridescent glitter treatment to China Glaze Ride The Waves, a medium blue jelly. This color does not photograph well- it is slightly darker in real life than it appears in my photos. It is a lovely summer color, but a bit sheer. It took me three coats for full opacity, but I might have been able to get by with two if they’d been a little thicker. Since I live in a sticky climate, I go for the thinnest coats possible.
Here it is, in close up. These blue shimmers just scream out “summer” to me. I want to do some mermaid designs on them!
As usual, one small pea-sized scoop of pigment in a quarter-sized dollop of polish, mixed up in my silicone baking cup. Shown here is two coats of mixed polish, topped off with a coat of Seche Vite.
