Can you tell how squishy this blue jelly is? This is three rather thick coats. I like my jellies deep like that. The thickness caused some bubbles, but anyone who's more careful than I am will make it without bubbles occuring.
And before you ask, here's how it compares to some other of our favourite dark blue shades.
I took this baby for a trip to IKEA to buy my third, much needed Helmer, and it stood up well for such a trial - you know, the usual packing and unpacking and packing again and then home, unpacking again and finally building. And despite having my love for blue slightly fringe bitten by the world of Swedish politics, wearing this was heaven. And while doing so, I couldn't help thinking that this awesomeness would make a fantastic frankening base. And then I got an idea I believed in.
I'm sure this has been executed a million times before, but I'm still confident enough to say: Essie Starry Starry Night - go fuck yourself! This is my latest creation, aptly named One Thousand and One Nights.
See? Yes. The glitter is gold instead of silver.
And then: sun!
What do you think? Nothing really, or am I right to take pride and feel content about this one?
The recipe is easy: About 2/3 of Ink Heart, and then some of Color Club's Enchanted Holiday, from the mini set released for the recent holiday season, completed by five or six drops of a black creme. You can tell from the closeup photo that Enchanted Holiday provided two different sized glitter particles, small square and slightly larger hex ones.
I also made a little sister for this one that I may show you some day - we'll see about that.
And yes, January is my blue month. When the holidays are over, and there's only cold and iciness, snow crystals everywhere I look, that's when I bring out my blue polishes. I've gathered a bunch from my untrieds drawers to see if I can get through at least some of them in the near future. So, lovers of blue polishes, this might be the place to hang around during the coming period of time! Though I'll of course eventually grow tired of wearing only one color, and from time to time abandon it for others.
Swedish word of the day:
solförmörkelse -noun solar eclipse
Apparently we had one for a few seconds today.
