Mixing Polish: I Thought I'd Give it a Try

Stamping: Purple Rain, get it?  I used to be a Prince fan

Hello fellow polish lovers.  Today I want to share with you my latest little project.  A purple polish I created myself.

I have so many almost-finished bottles of polish taking up valuable real estate in my storage space that I have no space left for my new purchases.  I have to do something about it. I refuse to buy a fourth salon-style nail polish wall rack.  I've run out of wall space. So I have a couple options.  I could stop buying polish until I have more space. Yeah, like that's going to happen.  Or I could start storing polishes in decorative boxes, which is what I've been doing, and it's a little inconvenient.  Eventually, I'll have to get another wall rack, but for now I want to consolidate and give mixing new colors a try.

I can't tell you exactly what I did to come up with my first color because I played around with several ingredients including loose pigments and a few polishes.  But I ended up with a muted purple that will be useful for striping and dotting when I don't want to use black.  It can soften an otherwise strongly contrasting design. Hmmm, I wonder how it'll stamp.  Gotta try that out.

Let's try a yellow tomorrow.  Check out tomorrow's post for (hopefully) a beautiful sunshiny yellow.
Ciao for now.
