TKB Trading -- Glitter and Reflecks

My first order from TKB Trading came in the mail! I haven't done much with these yet but I wanted to post some preliminary pictures of the sampler packs.

Here is the sample pack of 5 solvent-resistant glitters. Samples came packed as approximately one teaspoon (2.5 grams) in a zip lock bag. From left to right, we have:

  • Luminosity: Holographic glitter at its most microfine, .002 hex size. So fine it was hard to see any linear holo effect in the nail polish swatch I made.
  • Focus Blue: A true blue glitter. Hex size is .008.
  • Headtrip: Blue-green glitter with holo flashes. Hex size is .008.
  • Pink Points: Cool-toned pink glitter. Hex size is .008.
  • Adam & Eve: Mid-toned purple with holo sparks of blue and pink.

Here are the Reflecks Natural Glitter samples. From left to right, we have:

  • Burning Leaves: Burnt orange color
  • Copper Reflecks: Bright orange penny color
  • Bronze Reflecks: A warm brassy gold color
  • Gold Reflecks: Bright yellow gold
  • Pinky Pink: On the magenta side of pink
  • Turquoise Tweak: A bright peacock turquoise
  • Her Majesty: Mid to dark royal blue with pink sparks.

And finally here are a few quick swatches over the plain wheel and black polish. I can't wait to start frankening!
