Bright and crisp Key west makes a perfect, bright blue that mixes smoothly into soap batter, even if you forgot to pre-mix it with oil. Don't ask me how I know.

If you haven't been to Key West, then you must've seen the pictures or postcards! The brilliant blue water that surrounds you as you drive from Key to Key, headed across 7 Mile Bridge, heading to the ultimate destination: Key West.
This mica has an ethereal shade of blue that has a subtle, silvery radiance that reflects the light and enhances its already vivid hue. It makes us want to grab our sunscreen and hit the beach for a swim or a relaxing afternoon on a chaise.

Wow I am so in love with this color! It is such a bright, beautiful blue. It is going in my permanent collection!
I’ve seen that other companies sell a beachy Caribbean blue color but not like this one! Key West Blue is by far the prettiest and does so well in my CP soap!
What a beautiful blue - just like the perfect color you might dream about when you are snorkeling in the blue waters of the Carribean. And using it with MMica's white is just dreamy.
This blue is mesmerizing to look at. I use in my wax melts and soap. Will order again.
I got this as one of the colors in a small mix of colors I ordered. It's beautiful! I used the 1t ppo of cold process soap and it came out a bit pastel, but richer. It's beautiful. It behaved and I'm going to try another batch to a bit more than the recommended amount to see if the color will come out brighter or richer.
