Anywho, I put a picture up on Facebook with a couple of polishes that I had recently made asking everyone what they wanted to see first, and the winner was the polish you are seeing today! I started off with a bottle of TKB's Luster base filled about 80% of the way. I then added a few liberal drops of Wonder Beauty Products Primary Red Color Base which is a red jelly-ish colorant that ships to you in a full sized nail polish bottle. Just a couple drops will color any base a gorgeous vibrant true red. Anyways, I followed it up with a few medium sized scoops of TKB Cherika Moon, a glass fleck like pigment that states it shifts from red, to purple, to blue. I was thinking it would end up bright red with glass fleck shimmer. Surprisingly enough, the polish came out almost a neon magenta pink color (stupid me, the base color for the shimmer is white and white + red = pink. Duh, Becca). I was happily surprised by this and decided to roll with it. I wanted to amp up the brightness and added a few drops of Tangerine Scream (a neon orange polish from the 2009 Color Club Electro Candy Collection). So what I ended up with was a gorgeous vibrant bordering neon magenta with blue shifting glassfleck. I called it Electric Tutu:
Swatches show two thick coats on all fingers except for the ring finger which shows one coat over Wet 'n' Wild Black Creme. I love that the color shift is so much more apparent over the black but is still gorgeous on its own. Self leveling was good and dry time was normal. In case you are wondering, I was wondering as well, this seems to be pretty close to Butter London's Disco Biscuit. However, the base color is a bit lighter in Electric Tutu and Disco Biscuit has smaller glitter/shimmer particles with no apparent shift. So they are not dupes!
Well ladies, that's all for Electric Tutu! I loved this one so much I wore it twice in a row and even attempted some nail art with it:
Now I know my place is not in the nail art world but I was pretty happy with this! See you back on Wednesday for a new franken recipe. Have a great rest of your day and remember to always keep it classy and creative!
