Alter Ego Stone by Day, Warrior by Night is a group custom for the Alter Ego fan group on Facebook. Cynthia held a contest for a group member to choose the inspiration behind a polish. This was just before I became a mod so I didn’t swatch it at the time and this has been sitting in my collection for a while. I had planned on a #CBBxManiMonday post today that didn’t work out, so you get a swatch of this instead. Hopefully I can redo my experimental themed mani for later in the week.
Originally available as a group custom for June 2019, like most of her polishes, Cynthia made this one permanent (as long as she can get ingredients). Stone by Day, Warrior by Night is based on the Disney Gargoyles show. Don’t remember it? Take a trip down memory lane with this preview of it. If you are like me, you will fall down a black hole of watching 90s cartoons on YouTube (sorry, not sorry).
Swatches of Stone by Day, Warrior by Night by Alter Ego
Depending on light, the base of this looks grey to cornflower blue. It is loaded with darker blue flakies and shimmer with just a touch of some coloured shimmer or holo in there too. I got an occasional spark of pink in sunlight. You can see them in the bottle here.
It is quite light dependent and will appear more blue in some lighting and more grey in others. I couldn’t pick up the pink sparks on the nail in photos, but you do see them even in normal lighting conditions.
