Bath Bomb Notes
To use in bath bombs or other water applications, you must use polysorbate 80 (emulsifier) at a rate of 1-2% of your total batch weight. This should disperse the color evenly and eliminate mica from floating on the water's surface or leaving a ring of mica around the bathtub.
This is one of my favorite colors. Absolutely perfect. I own a nail dip company and the customers love this one!
I can't get over the color and quality of this Mica. It's deep and mysterious. Perfect for any project
I used this with a BlackBerry FO and did not get the purple i was hoping for. I am still playing with this color
This mica is so pretty. It has the deep, sulty, sexiness to it. I made eyeshadow with it and added in some sparkle with Here Comes the Bride. It came out so pretty and I will purchase it again.
I love this mica! The color is fantastic! Couldn't be happier!
