Cloudy Night…

… cumulus or cirro-nimbus?  😀

“And give me some coffee. Black as midnight on a moonless night.”
Harga looked surprised. That wasn’t like Vimes.
“How black’s that, then?” he said.
“Oh, pretty damn black, I should think.”
“Not necessarily.”
“What?”
“You get more stars on a moonless night. Stands to reason. They show up more. It can be quite bright on a moonless night.”
Vimes sighed.
“An overcast moonless night?” he said.
Harga looked carefully at his coffee pot.
“Cumulus or cirro-nimbus?”
“I’m sorry? What did you say?”
“You get city lights reflected off cumulus, because it’s low lying, see. Mind you, you can get high-altitude scatter off the ice crystals in–”
“A moonless night,” said Vimes, in a hollow voice, “that is as black as coffee.”
(Terry Pratchett, Men at Arms)

Or, as this weeks color of “Lacke in Farbe … und Bunt!” by Lena and Cyw, anthracite… 😀

cloudy night

“Pearly Gunmetal” is a great color, a dusty almost-black with a tiny hint of shimmer, and with careful application probably a one-coater.

I was a bit scared to try watercolor nails again, because it was such a mess last time. But now I used the p2 “color stop” and took less polish, and it was okay. Not good – or mess-free at that, mind you – but ok. I am always amazed that as much pigmented the KIKO polishes are, they are so easy to clean up as well. There’s very little smearing or color that, no matter what you do, sticks to your skin. I still can’t believe it took me over a year in my polish-craze to finally try some KIKO polishes. 😀
