Choosing Mystical Colour Combinations

It’s not always easy to pick a winning colour combination for your new collection. Some of us take hours (or even days) to decide what pink is the right shade for those laser cut heart shaped earrings—yes, I am guilty of this. With over 200 colours of acrylic, plastic and wood types, we understand how option paralysis can occur. Fear not, colour palette suggestions are coming!

We’re diving into the icy depths of the mermaid and seahorse waters to bring you a collection of magical colour suggestions—all designer approved 😉 We’ve listed out exactly what we’ve used in each creation, so you can recreate it as is, or make your own style changes.

Mermaid Party

Put on your party hat, this vibrant colour combination splashes feelings of celebration, relaxation and beautiful serenity.

Statement Drops With the Mermaid Party colour palette

Together these colours and template shapes bring the good vibes to life. The Turquoise Solid provides contrast to the Mint Green Solid and Frosted Light Purple acrylics. The subdued colour of the Frosted Light Purple acrylic lends itself to the bold diamond gem.

Ballerina Frosting

All the pretties are dancing gracefully together in this palette. The glitz of the sky blue, the strength of the pale pink, and the shining light of the silver mirror. I wonder what you’ll create with this elegant combination?

The attention grabbing Silver Mirror is pointing down to shine the spotlight on the Sky Blue Premium Glitter. With the pink and purple tinge of the glitter amplified by the Pale Pink Solid. Also love how the hole placement of the circle looks like a button—and everyone loves buttons.

Icy Magic

The Icelandic vibes are flowing through this palette. The frosty pastel tones are fun to play with bold shapes.

Statement Drops With the Icy Magic colour palette

The ice is melting with the dripping heart in the slightly see-through Aqua Frosted. We glued the moon onto the heart to give a 3d effect, which looks nice from the front and the back.

Flamingo Skies

The lush romance of these colours creates a sense of enthusiasm and playfulness. Movement is created with the glitter and the natural swirl of the mineral acrylic. It brings life to your designs, so now the question is, what vibrant creations will you make?

Statement Drops With the Flamingo Skies colour palette

Move over pink, these flamingos were born to be blue! How good do they look?! The middle circle hollow shape looks like a pool floaty, with water glistening the reflection of the sky in the Dark Blue Glitter.
