It’s Here! Now with Swatches

My bottle of Ray of Light just arrived and I could not wait to post some photos! Swatches to come.

With flash

March 31: I was able to swatch this morning, unfortunately our springtime sunshine turned into cold and cloudy, so the lighting is not spectacular inside or out.  Photos do however show a good representation of the color.  Also, this is the first time I have posted swatches not on a nail wheel, and concurrently my hands are in a state of emergency after my fingertips started peeling!  But I wanted to share the swatches anyway.

Ray of Light is a dark indigo creme with copper flakes with a slight green flash.  If you haven’t heard by now, it is not the easiest to work with.  You’re going to want to have some polish thinner on standby, and a lot of patience.  It’s difficult formula may turn a lot of people off to it, especially since flake polishes are not exactly hard to find in today’s market.

Like most of Lippmann’s  glitter polishes, the base has a sheer quality good for layering over other polishes.

One coat of Ray of Light (and my big toe peeking out in Essie’s Ole Caliente)

Two coats on ring and middle finger, one coat on index.  Super Macro mode really captures all the soot in our patio table (we live near a train station)

Ray of Light is one thirsty polish.  I used Lynnderella’s Glitter Tamer and topped with Seche Vite to dry quickly:

  3. Make a complete circle rather than an open circle so it
    looks like a bubble. Sometimes traction alopecia can go on for years, which results from wearing your hairstyle too tightly.
    In addition, from the same era, he believed that the spirits
    were used in Mesopotamia for ritual ceremonies.
