Swatches: Coastal Scents Warms

5/08/17: Coastal Scents sells bulk pigments on their website, Mica Powder and not the Coastal Scents website like they used to. Additionally, not all of their pigments are available so I've removed the links to those that aren't and updated the ones that still are.

Links checked 12/12/13
Continuing from the last post, today is the warm color range from Coastal Scents. All pictures, unless stated otherwise, go from left to right. Click to enlarge.

In the yellows and golds are: 24 Karat Gold, Goldstone, Metallic Olivia, Sparkle Gold, Antique Gold, Pearlescent Sparkling Pure Gold, Gold Rush & Paradise Star Gold.  Second picture was taken in direct sunlight
Metallic Olivia, when used in polish, is one of those trouble pigments. It's also nearly identical to TKB Trading's Crucible Khaki (view my comparison here).


24 Karat Gold, Goldstone, Metallic Olivia & Sparkle Gold. Second picture was taken in direct sunlight.

Antique Gold, Pearlescent Sparkling Pure Gold, Gold Rush & Paradise Star Gold. Second picture was taken in direct sunlight.

The oranges are: Aruban Coral Pearl, Metallic Pearl Honey Tan, Tangerine Pearl, Paradise Shimmer Tan, Metallic Pearl Bronze, Metallic Copper, Copper & Metallic Rustic Gold. Second picture was taken in direct sunlight.  
Metallic Rustic Gold closely resembles TKB's Aztec Gold, viewable here. Metallic Copper is another troublesome pigment in polish.

Aruban Coral Pearl, Metallic Pearl Honey Tan, Tangerine Pearl & Paradise Shimmer Tan.

Metallic Pearl Bronze, Metallic Copper, Copper & Metallic Rustic Gold.

For the reds we have: Paradise Rose Sky, Metallic Pearl Red Raisin, Pearlescent Fire, Sienna Fine Pearl, Blackstar Red, Blue Claret Pearl, Cerise Flambe & Antique Red. Second picture was taken in direct sunlight.

And finally, pinks. Sunset, Duocrome Red Orange, Chrome Carmine, Blushing Pink, Hot Side Pink and Cellini Red Intense.  Second picture was taken in direct sunlight.
Chrome Carmine has a very intense gold reflection to it. Cellini Red, while indeed intense, is nearly matte.

Sunset, Duocrome Red Orange, Chrome Carmine. The purplish hue in the Sunset is not an illusion. Second picture was taken in direct sunlight.

Blushing Pink, Hot Side Pink & Cellini Red Intense.

TKB Trading swatches will be next. Check back soon. -MK
