Aromaleigh v1’s Laughing Muse

Aromaleigh v1’s Laughing Muse

Posted on Thursday, at

Color requested by Angel Laughing Muse (me) as part of the Aromaleigh Angels / DonorsChoose.org charity event. When I sent in my “order”, I requested a periwinkle base with true duochrome effects. Apparently, it's something of a bugbear to add the duochrome mica in quantities sufficient to still leave you with a good deal of pigmentation (I proved this to myself when I mixed up <a href=”/such/obsessive/addictions/sparklecrack_centrals_rock_the_planets/”>my frankencolors</a>.)...

Color requested by Angel Grey as part of the Aromaleigh Angels / DonorsChoose.org charity event. For quite a while I initially dismissed this color because it was another quasi-neutral, and I had “a gracious plenty of those”...well, not quite like this one. Inspired by a dress worn by the title character Georgiana in the movie “The Duchess”, this color is a lovely understated gold-buff shimmer. There's also a sprinkling of red and pink shimmer that warms this color up...

Color requested by Angel Hottie McNaughty as part of the Aromaleigh Angels / DonorsChoose.org charity event. I had plenty of pinks and mauves when this color came out - even a few burgundy shades. But no bright vivid reds like this one, no coral colors, no reds as pigmented as Aromaleigh typically does colors. The other big bonus in this is that because of the coral tones, this color sets off my blue-grey eyes really well.
