Mix #9: muted lavender creme

mix #9

mix #9 on my nails 🙂

Yay, first post. 🙂

A little about myself: I like to mix polishes and create interesting new colors. Some are successful, while others are… not so successful. But mixing is really fun because you never know what you’ll get! And it’s cheaper than buying new polishes! And you get to brag “Oh, yeah, I kinda sorta mixed this m’self…” if you get compliments on your nails!! Haha, just kidding. 🙂

Anyway, this is the 9th formula on my color wheel (you can see it in the background of my first pic up there). I mixed black, mint, red, and pink and got a nice muted purple creme. It does have a tiny bit of shimmer from the pink, but only if you look real close!

I rather like this color! The muted/dusty cool tones are popular this fall season, I think. This shade is kinda fun, but neutral enough to slide in an office situation. The only problem with mixed polishes is that you have to put a lot on at once if the formula isn’t very pigmented, and fast, too, before the polish puddle dries up. So I got bubbles on my ring finger. Yuck! Ah well, at least they’re not overly pronounced – those gross me out.


black, mint, red, and pink=lavender:)

I think I will post these up as I actually do them on my nails. I don’t feel like wearing some of the first couple mixes right now, haha.
