Absolutely gorgeous in both CP and MP soap, Nebula goes even further in epoxy resin, showing its full range of colors and depth.

Beautiful violet-blue purple!!

This color is exactly what I have been trying to find for sometime! It is an absolutely stunning blue-violet purple 💜
It only takes a small amount in my melt and pour soaps, scrubs and doesn't clump at all, it disperses very well in product. Shipping as always is fast and I just love the personal touch and candy and sample..I hope you keep this one around! This is the ONLY place I get my micas!

Stunning, complex mica!

This pearly, bright lavender blew me away! The subtle iridescent flash of blue is just perfect! Your whole Deep Space Collection was the inspiration for my Nebula Soaps; I was planning to make a Nebula Soap to expand my "Out of this World" collection, but was fretting over colors- boom! Your first set of Deep Space micas dropped- I was in love, and I am in love with each one of them!

Nebula is pretty, but not as sparkly and wow as I was anticipating

The Nebula mica that I got was lighter than I thought it would be from the website photos. It's pretty enough, more of a silvery violet, but it doesn't have the depth I was expecting. Perhaps having it sitting right by Heliotrope (deep, rich color) didn't put it in it's best light. :) Nevertheless, it is a pretty silvery purple and I'm not disappointed that I bought it.

The color is beautifully intense and adds depth to any project. Mad Micas always provides a variety of colors to meet the individuals creative need. I highly recommend. Product came in a timely manner and packages securely.
