My hand is still not as steady as normal, so I hope you can forgive the kitty on my ring finger. When I text my BFF a picture, she said it wasn't bad, HK just looked like she's melting... In any case, voila, some freehand art again!
I really wanted to use my bottle of Mermaid's Tears by OPI because it was so nice and creamy when I swatched it.
Also, I wanted to show you where I stand with my frankens! If you follow my page on the FB machine, you'll have seen most of these next pictures. They're bottle shots of the polishes that I blended today. Not all of them, only four, but over the next couple days I'm going to show you more! I got a big package this morning with half of the bases that I ordered and a huge selection of pigments. The problem is that I am still missing the other bases and can't actually finish most of my recipe tests and then go on to bottling. It'll probably take another week and a half to get everything...
But I am completely covered in glitter, thanks to this hobby of mine!
This is my new and improved version of Expendable Crewman. I'm still on the fence about keeping their Star Trek names because I'm worried that they don't appeal to as many people as I would like. Perhaps I can bribe some of you with a bottle naming contest? We'll have to discuss this option when I get the rest of my supplies and finalize the colors!
A new version of I'm A Doctor, Not A Nail Polish!
Then we have the base color for Tiberius. This is pre-glitter. I'm playing with different sizes and colors in it at this point, but I seriously love the color in this pigment and I'm considering offering this shade without big chunky glitter. We'll see!
Finally, I have what I'm calling "Pop Tart" thanks to one of my friends on the FB machine. It's a white jelly with a bunch of rainbow glitter. I have five bottles of this mixed and can probably mix two more before I run out of ingredients, and after that I may not offer it except in limited quantities, at least until I can get a bigger stock or find alternative glitters that aren't as pricey. It runs me a bit more to produce than the other colors.
If you're still with me, thanks for reading!
