Focus On: Fyrinnae Kamikaze

Focus On is a work in progress. Have you ever talked yourself out of buying a product because the color was too odd, and you wondered how often you would really be able to use it? Or, you know those colors you LOVE because of some hidden versatility that you never imagined when you bought it? I do that ALL of the time. In the interests of loving what I HAVE, and learning its limitations, rather than relying on the influx of new colors, I will be doing this post every Saturday, focusing on a new color from my collection, with examples of past work, ideas for other uses. Please feel free to suggest colors you wish to see, or uses for the ones listed, or let me know what your favorites are for future posts.

We’ll be playing with Fyrinnae Kamikaze today.  Fyrinnae’s website describes it as a classic, fire engine red.  I’d say it leans a teeny bit oranger than that though.  It has pretty sparkles to it, but no real frost.  Swatched here, over Fyrinnae pixie epoxy.

Used wet, or with a colored primer, or other red shadows, it is a classic vibrant red.

Used dry, or with a fluffy brush, it can be used in softer more neutral looks, and the reddish tones make green or brown eyes POP.

Pair with other frosty golds and pinks, over a frosty base, to  bring out the shimmer.

Pair with corals and oranges, to make a rich crease contour
