Good afternoon. Welcome back if you’ve been here before, welcome for the first time if you haven’t.
It's a new day and I've been plugging away at this all morning but as you can see it is still a work in progress (although it turns out to be a good thing that I've had a website before and so know a bit of html and all that good stuff). I've managed to get the general idea, have arranged things, added some links to my favorite stores and links to some of my favorite polish blogs- though the list is nowhere near complete.
If you’re looking for nail swatches of store bought polish, I’ll refer you to the wonderful blogs I have listed to the right. I’ve chosen to focus on the pigments-in-polish end of things which is vastly more entertaining to me and hopefully for you as well.
The swatches I plan on having here will be of the pigments I’ve purchased from TKB Trading and Coastal Scents along with a few color recipes I’ve whipped up from pigments from both companies. (TKB Trading had an elaborate list of color recipes on their site but naturally made only from their pigments.) I’ll show you how they look in polish as opposed to in dry form as well as polishes I’ve made from them. At some point I’ll also have color comparisons because in many cases the colors are so similar that I’ve ended up with several that look the same.
Since I am a bargain hunter, there will be a separate list of stores to buy pigments from, other stores with spectacular colors. Coastal Scents and TKB Trading are my preferred companies only because of the price versus size (and aside from selling retail they also do wholesale which I’m sure effects their prices). You’ll find a similar list for fingernail polish with an emphasis on cheap, cheap being a low price, not necessarily low quality. Yes you could find this information in other places but I intend on putting it all in one place.
Check back periodically for these things and more. Until then, thank you for visiting. -MK
