Chromatic pigments swatches and review part 2

As promised, today I have for you the second half of the chromatic pigments review. If you've missed the first part, just follow this link.

I received the pigments in small ziploc bags. They all contained 1g of powder and I used around 1/3 of that in regular size clear nail polish bottles (15ml / 0.5oz).
2 coats over black in all of these swatches, no topcoat.

412605
strong purple to blue and orange medium shimmer flecks

Overall :
I didn't do it intentionally but man, didn't I keep the best half for last? These pigments are absolutely amazing. They mix really well, are super sparkly and duochromey alright!


They can be purchased from Anna's eBay store AnnasArtAsylum (worldwide shipping). Anna has several listings up : choose 1, 2, 3 or 5 pigment packs.
And if I may add, they're up for a bargain since you can make 2 to 3 full size bottles with each.

  12. Hi Sam! I love the pigment, but the day after I mixed it and painted my nails it settled in the bottom of my polish bottle and seems to be glued there. It won't mix back up. What clear polish did you use?

  14. @Mandy28 I used regular clear polish, very cheap actually. All pigments tend to settle if you don't use a suspension base (try googling TKB trading, they sell them). Did you put balls in your bottle? If you do, the pigments should mix back just fine. I just tried shaking one of my bottles and a good shake did the trick. I hope this helps! xx

  15. Sam, I have never made my own polish, I am ready to order the pigments. How exactly to I mix them, and with what? Is the pigment, as hard, as glitter polish, is to take off? Is it hard to make? Thank you for your time and lovely ideas ...

  16. @Nikki I use a regular straw and cut one of the extremities to use it as a sort of disposable spoon. The pigment is a fine powder and I carefully pour into a bottle of nail polish, using gloves, a mask and goggles. It's very easy to make but don't forget about safety! Once the pigment is mixed with polish (with stainless steel balls) it's completely safe and has the same consistency as a regular shimmer, esay to apply and to take off. xx

  18. Thanks so much for these swatches! I just picked up some pigments :)

    @Mandy28 tkbtrading.com has great stuff for making your own polish. To keep shimmer suspended, you have to add suspension base. Their product is called "Luster Base". Alternatively, you could use a somewhat clear glitter polish (Wet 'n' Wild Kaleidoscope), since those have to have suspension base to hold up the glitter. TKB also sells the stainless steel balls (2 per bottle, to get things to mix well when shaken), and mini bottles. Google "franken polish" for more info.
