Diamond Girl you sure do shine!
Here is my 2nd ever mica swirl Black Raspberry Vanilla done a few months ago and much like the Christmas Berry from Christmas 2012.
The soap below is for this 3rd week challenge and is called named Diamond Girl! Do you ever get a song caught in your mind repeating over and over again?! Well this was the song and I made it into a soap! Diamond Girl You Sure Do Shine! Over and over and oooover. LOL
This is made with a gold and white pearly mica swirl! Silver would have been better than the white pearl but you use what you have. The swirl wasn't as photogenic or prominent as the one above, but it is just as dramatic in person! There is no color in the base of the soap, just natural coloring with some inclusions for interest. All the glamor is on the top of this moisturizing bar full of extraordinary bubbles and lather.
Once again I used a new fragrance for the first time, I must used them up! Well might as well live on the slippery soapy edge and keep it challenging and exciting! The fragrance is a white floral combined with a sweet citrus and very upscale. I hope you enjoy looking as I sure enjoyed making this one! Soon to be cut giving it a few days due to the recipe.
One last soap I just couldn't resist!
Now that was just so fun that I had to do just one more. For a peak here is Neptune's Gold which smells amazing. Another new fragrance from Wellington's in Ohio. This is such a fun touch to the tops of my soaps and in the future I'll try to incorporate other colors into what I'm working on!
I am looking forward to all the beautiful soaps this challenge has inspired! The colors the magic oils and the fragrance.
