DIY With TKB Trading Mica Pt.1
Posted: February 18, 2013 Filed under: Uncategorized
I’ve had some Tkb Trading Micas for a while now that I meant to press
and make bases for but never did.
I finally decided to pull some out and make some polishes with them.
Last week there was a sale on Wet N Wild Products and Coupons for $1 off.
I stocked up on some black nail polish to mix with my micas and now I have about 7 beauties
to show you guys. 🙂
All micas are mixed into Wet N Wild Wild Shine’s Black Creme.
I purchased the Samples of the Micas for $1.50 a color which includes lots of product for cheap, WOOT!
Names above the pictures will be the Mica I used.
Most Polishes were opaque in one coat.

Crucible red is a GORGEOUS metal like polish.
It looks better in the pot and it turned out looking more of a copper color instead of looking
red in the container

My favorite polish I’ve made with the tkb micas, this is crucible gold.
Name is SO fitting for this color.

This also one of my favorites.
Reminds me of a color in my 8 pan palette from WNW.
Its a lovely deep chocolate shade with a green popping through.
My camera could not capture how pretty this shade is!

Hope I have inspired some of you to make your own stuff!!!
If you have these Micas laying around use them!
