I just wanted to say hi to everyone reading right now and send a huuuge happy birthday to Skye from http://nailz-in-aus.blogspot.com/ because it's her 21st birthday today (Saturday). Happy Birthday Skye!
Anyways I do have a quick update. I recently ordered coloured acrylic powders from (USER NAME: glamlabel) on eBay. The item was 12 coloured acrylic powers and I paid 11.50USD including shipping. I recieved it today which is quite fast because they ship from Hong Kong and it arrived at my house in about 4-5 days. I'm very happy with the colours but not so pleased about the quality and quantity. The amounts are quite small and when I opened them to test the colours I found that some of the containers were only half full :( But nonetheless I will be having a lot of fun (for sure!) playing around and practicing with these colours :D
This kit also included a white coloured powder but I decided not to take a close-up picture because I've been using a white from my acrylics kit and you guys have already seen that.
I think that out of all the colours this was the worst one. It seemed to be some sort of super light peach/flesh colour and when I went to go pick up an acrylic bead it was fading in random areas. I thought this was going to be a baby pink so weird.
Bright yellow! This colour is so nice. The only good thing about this kit is the variety of colours and this yellow is so fantastic. I can't wait to use it :)
Orange :) As you can see the ball and the actual powder differ in colour. The darker coloured orange is the actual colour produced after the polymer has been in contact with the monomer.
Fuscia pink. I really love this colour it's very nice. Although I am disappointed that there wasn't a nice baby pink to go along with it.
Lavender (purple). This colour is so special because from different angles it can look very faint but from other angles the colour is bold and obvious.
Sky blue. This colour is how I wish the sky would look like everyday. It's a very happy and bright blue :D
Mint green. I think this colour would be perfect for sculpting leaves of various flowers. Roses maybe? MUST PRACTICE!
I'm not 100% sure why this looks a bit bluer in the picture because in person this is a TRUE emerald green. It's very vibrant.
Red. I think this would be great for making love hearts. Cute and cartoony :)
Indigo. This is my favourite colour out of the 12. It's really gorgeous when you see it in person. It's a bold blue with a tiny hint of purple.
Black! I don't know what I'd be using this colour for. Maybe I'll mix it up and do a baby pink nail base with black love hearts and bows. What do you think?
If any of you are currently using coloured acrylic powders and are very happy with your product would you please let me know which ones you are using so I can give it a try too? Thaaank you in advance.
