TKB Planetary Sampler Duochrome Pigments – Swatch of the Day

TKB Trading Planetary Sampler Swatches

Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Neptune, Pluto
Angled to better show duochrome

A long, long time ago I promised to post swatches of franken nail polishes made with TKB Trading’s Planetary Sampler – seven different color shifting pigments which can be used in nail polish. The pigments are also sold separately as Travel to Mercury, Travel to Venus, etc.

I’ve had the polishes sitting out for months – and here are swatches! They are really lovely, and I’d highly recommend getting the sample set if you’re into frankening polish at all.

I made these polishes by mixing a bit of pigment with suspension base, and the pictured swatches are each one coat of the polish over a black creme.  I’ve also photographed the polishes underwater to better show the duochrome.

Venus and Pluto are my favorites – what about you?

  • Now this is interesting! I didn’t know you could photograph them under water in order to make it show up better! I need to try this myself now, lol. I looove the outcome btw, it’s really hard to pick a favourite!

    • Underwater makes duochromes SO pretty, I don’t remember where I learned it, but it’s a neat trick 🙂

    Oh! So THAT’S what frankening is. What is the suspension base that you are using, Emi?

    • Haha, I try to restrain myself & only post pictures of the kittens to twitter/ fb / instagram – everywhere except the blog 🙂 I use TKB’s suspension base. I’m not really sure if you need a suspension base for pigments, but you definitely need one for glitter.
