I have NS's "Maya Gold", "Rapunzel Gold" & "Shimmer Gold" micas & love them all... Each play the perfect role in various soapy projects (plus "Gold Dust" Enviroglitter... Love that beauty too!), but I was looking for a slightly more matte gold... Something that captured a true honey-yellow gold, with just a touch of metallic shimmer, but not quite as sparkly as say, "Shimmer Gold" (that one's got sparkle for days!!). Sahara Gold fits the bill PERFECTLY! It arrived just in time for a honey-lime CP soap I made, and was the perfect golden-honey accompaniment to "Enchantment" mica, used for my lime portion! True & stunning in CP, I couldn't have "fished my wish" MORE with this beautiful gold mica! The smaller micron size makes it perfect for mica lines too, where my layers will stay together & the mica line itself will show through brilliantly! Its lighter touch of shimmer will make this mica perfect for drizzling, as well as incorporating into clear MP base for embeds too! Yet another gorgeous gold from Nurture that will provide a plethora of uses for me! I'm thrilled with this mica!
