from the book Middlesex: "It denotes the first fever of human pair bonding. It causes giddiness, elation, a tickling on the chest wall, the urge to climb a balcony on the rope of the beloved's hair. Periphescence denotes the initial drugged and happy bedtime where you sniff your lover like a scented poppy for hours running."
Got it? Sorta? Good, me too! I thought it sounded utterly poetic and definitely challenging, so I decided to take a stab at turning this idea into a polish. Check it out! I started this polish off with TKB Luster Base. When I think of love, feverish and new, I think red. So in turn, I added 2 medium scoops of TKB True Red Orange Powder pigment (which has a small sheen to it). Next, I added multiple drops of TKB Black Nail Polish colorant (not pictured) to give it more of a deep lit from within color. Then, I added one medium scoop of Glitter Unique's .004 Garnet Hex, 2 medium scoops of .008 Fire Red Holo Hex, and finally, one small scoop of .004 Shifting Rainbow Hex to help give off a tickling sensation as mentioned in the description. What I created was a deep purple toned red shimmer base with burning red glitter and tiny sparks of iridescence:
Check out that iridescent micro glitter popping out!
So, that is my interpretation of periphescence! Formula is a little sheer at one coat but builds up nicely by the second thick coat. It does dry to a somewhat gritty finish due to the glitter so I added two coats of Glisten & Glow HK Girl top coat. I like it and I hope Alyssa does too! What do you think? Is it a decent interpretation?
Well that's all for today's stump the femme! See you back next time for more franken awesomeness! But until then, remember to keep it classy and creative!
