Like any good academic, I’ve decided “Project Wear-It” is too long and too comprehensible, so I’ll probably go with PWI for a while. If it’s hateful I’ll go back!
Over Golden-I, meet Essie Sparkle on Top:
|It looks like crumpled tin foil. Or very, very, very badly applied gold polish. Sigh.|
Unfortunately, it really didn’t look great. From any distance it just looked uneven and lumpy. The iridescence didn’t really show. So I did what any sensible blogger (or academic) would do, namely Googled for someone else’s solution.
The swatches that appealed to me most were over pale colors, blue and pink primarily. Aha, sez I! I have a medium blue kicking around somewhere. So I tried it over the unnamed Physicians Formula blue, and magic happened:
|Better! Uh… I promise.|
Okay, I freely admit that the pictures just don’t look any better than the gold! Flakies are super hard to take pictures of, y’all. But in person I see lots of glinting greens and distracting sparks of red and orange. I’m much happier. Except for my photography…*
