Baroness X sure loves her fans. She gave us Doomfire, and Sir Cockicorn, and now Vulcan. I think this might be my favorite one yet...and I am not usually a blue fan.
(promotional samples ahead)
Vulcan is a vivid cobalt blue jelly polish filled with the mythical Unicorn Pee pigment. Yes, that same pigment that gives such fire and life to Max Factor Fantasy Fire and Doomfire...as well as the Ex Libris collection from last year. That signature shift from electric rosy violet to copper and green is pretty singular in the nail world, and as far as I can find...you can't buy it anymore. Even eBay seems barren today. Long story short, the pigment is hard to find.
I used three medium coats over a clear basecoat for these pictures, and then followed it up with a layer of Seche Vite. To make this color go further, you could definitely layer a coat or two over a vivid blue like Pacific Blue (which I used as a base for this manicure). But it is nice to see what it looks like alone too. In the pictures here, I definitely see a bit of nail line, but in person it was a lot less obvious.
This shot below, where I diffused my light a bit, is more indicative of what it looks like under normal conditions. My goal for 2017 is definitely going to be to create a better lighting set-up to catch the shifters.
So this is natural, but indirect, lighting courtesy of my garage. You can see the coppery glow here best.
I could look at this polish all damned day. I even layered it over DoomJelly, which is Doomfire without the fire...but you'll have to wait for that.
Have you joined the Army yet? We have all the shiny things, Vulcan included!
