My girlfriend texted me about colors that are in for fall the other day, “Purple is in this fall, right?” I texted back, “Absolutely!” She painted her fingers and toes a stunning, slightly metallic purple. It reminded me that I had two colors sitting on my own bathroom counter, waiting to be mixed together.
Butter London’s ‘Gobsmacked’ (Fall/Winter 2012)
I started out with a very light mixture of Gobsmacked and heavy on the French Affair. It was streaky and too light for the season. The end result was reminded me of a hurricane sky purple with that dark blue you often see during a storm on the water. It seemed appropriate for the end of September. Please, ignore the rough edges. This is pre-cutical clean up.
